Group Help Revitalize
Downtown Omaha by Building Two Unique, Yet Related Hotels
|January 18, 2007 - City officials turned to North Central
Group Hotel Investors LLC and DLR Group to help revitalize an urban area
north of downtown Omaha by designing two unique, yet related hotels.
The result, a 139-room, four-story Hampton Inn & Suites and a 123-room,
eight story Homewood Suites.
DLR Group utilized a warehouse contemporary style when designing the hotels to keep with the history and existing architecture of downtown Omaha. The orientation of the hotels was restricted by tight site parameters. Designers took advantage of the close proximity of the buildings by creating a shared plaza and entry area. The design of these facilities will help set high standards for the rest of this landmark project called the North Omaha Downtown Development.
