Colonial Hotel Apartments

A Blackstone Rebirth

Originally built in 1910 and occupying a prominent corner in the popular Blackstone District adjacent to the University of Nebraska Medical Center campus, the Colonial Hotel Apartments was rehabilitated to its former glory through thoughtful intervention. The building – a former hotel – had become structurally unsound. Its restoration represents a rebirth for the landmark, adding density to the Dodge St./Farnam St. corridor, and preserving the history of this unique Omaha neighborhood.

The 1950s Colonial Hotel sign now hangs in the building's Community Room.

Originally constructed in 1910 at a cost of $30,000, an article in the Omaha Bee newspaper promised tenants "the most modern apartment equipment."

The Red Lion Lounge in the basement opened at the same time as the original Colonial Apartments and was also renovated and reopened.

Welcome Callahan

June 19, 2020

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.
