Atlas Apartments

Transformed and Transported

APMA worked with NuStyle Development to adapt the former Creighton University Medical Center into a dynamic, mixed-use building that includes 732 apartments, two swimming pools, indoor basketball court, multiple community rooms, two fitness centers, and commercial bays on the first floor. A coffee shop, bar and restaurant, and convenience store offer added amenities for tenants, many of whom are students at nearby Creighton University.

“We were considering an iconic symbol that would replace the cross and help provide unique definition to the building,” said Jennifer Zimmer - APMA, of the new plane hanging from the building.

Only 12 months passed between the last patient being discharged and the first apartment resident moving in.

Designed with international theme in mind, the renovated 1,000,000 SF building is called Atlas. Environmental graphics, wayfinding and art celebrate the global make-up of the student body at Creighton.
