Flats on Howard

Neighborhood Transformation

Designed for downtown professionals and students seeking modern, efficient and technology-ready apartments in Omaha’s urban core, APMA worked with developer Arch Icon to transform nine individual historic buildings into The Flats on Howard. The Flats are located within the Howard Street Historic Apartment District (HSHAD), a unique area of multiple family dwelling units that grew out of an area of mansions in the early 1900’s. The historic apartments were designed in a variety of styles with original details restored or replicated to add character and charm. The original murphy bed frames; private wrought iron balconies, hardwood, terrazzo and porcelain tile floors are just a few of the historic touches that adorn a wide variety of apartments styles, sizes and configurations in several classic brick buildings.
