From Derelict to Dynamic
Our visionary clients at NuStyle Development saw opportunity in this abandoned OPPD power plant located on the Missouri River. The APMA team helped overcome the seemingly insurmountable challenges, turning three derelict industrial buildings – with only metal catwalks throughout – into modern, urban-luxury living that attracts residents to formerly abandoned part of town.
Scope of Work
Date of Completion
The Breakers Omaha
The original power plant was constructed in 1889 and was listed to the National Register of Historic in July of 2015.
“People love the historical nature of the building. This is what grew Omaha – this power plant.”
Many living units include remnants and elements from the original building; exposed structure and brick, glass block windows and concrete ceilings to name a few.
