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