This summer, a former two-block stretch of concrete parking stalls is to come alive with apartment dwellers, hotel guests and visitors seeking entertainment at the long-awaited Capitol District project.
Five years in the making, the $205 million development’s signature 333-room hotel and 218-apartment building, each rising 12 stories, clearly is changing the landscape of downtown Omaha.
Glass and exterior pieces were being installed last week on the full-service Marriott. Showers were being lifted into the market-rate apartments.
Taking form between the two structures is an outdoor plaza about the size of a football field. People should be dining and socializing there by the 2017 College World Series, perhaps catching a baseball game on a big screen or grooving to a stage performer.
