Omaha, Neb., is getting in on the entertainment district game. The Capitol District is a 5.4-acre mixed-use development that includes an entertainment district and will feature dining options, a full-service hotel, upscale apartments, office space, and a shared outdoor plaza.

The 11-story Capitol District Apartments building will comprise 218 rental units. Amenities include a fitness center, a penthouse loft with gourmet kitchen, a community lounge with games and an outdoor deck, secure parking, and controlled access to the building. One- and two-bedroom apartments are offered. The apartments will also include 19,000 sf of main floor retail.

The apartment building was constructed using a modular construction system from Prescient, a BIM design and building platform. Prescient structures consist of a combination of standardized, pre-assembled steel posts, trusses, and panels that are custom-manufactured. It is non-combustible, minimizes disruption in the areas surrounding the construction zone, and reduces the need for rework.

Leo A Daly designed and provided engineering services for the Capitol District Apartments. The firm is also providing full architectural and engineering services for the 333-room Omaha Marriott Downtown Capitol District hotel and the 505-stall parking garage.
