Located in the scenic Heartland of America Park overlooking the Missouri River, the Beebe + Runyan is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The building began its life as a warehouse serving the river trade and was built in 1913 for the Beebe and Runyan Furniture Company. The eight-story building recently underwent a complete renovation and was converted into luxury loft condominiums. The construction project was the first in Nebraska to recycle 100% of the waste produced, giving this luxurious development a truly green start in life. Today, the Beebe + Runyan provides a regal setting for stylish one and two bedroom lofts and deluxe penthouse suites close to shopping, entertainment and work opportunities.
The plans for restoring and converting the historic Beebe + Runyan building were conceived and designed by the Leo A. Daly Sr. architectural firm on behalf of the Boca Development Company, which completed primary construction on the project in 2007. Condominium units in the building incorporate reclaimed maple wood for flooring as well as many of the original beams and bricks from the original building layout, preserving the historic look and feel of this classic edifice. The redesigned space boasts large exterior windows and a six-story atrium for ample natural light throughout the building, giving the entire development an open, airy look and feel.
The beauty of the Beebe + Runyan Luxury Lofts goes far deeper than simple cosmetic updates, however. The entire development has been designed to be environmentally friendly with energy efficient heat pumps supplemented by electric-powered furnaces for the coldest winter nights. Thermal windows are standard in all areas of the building and let in light while keeping cold and heat out. All-natural materials were used to finish surfaces throughout the units. Even the disposal chutes are environmentally conscious, with recycling options available alongside the standard garbage chutes.
Health conscious residents can take advantage of the fitness center which comprises 3,000 square feet and offers state-of-the-art exercise equipment. For entertaining, the Beebe + Runyan also boasts a fully-equipped 2,000 square foot community room complete with kitchen facilities and a communal 50-inch plasma-screen television. Concierge service is always available and the two-floor underground parking garage is heated for optimal comfort.
Residents of the Beebe + Runyan enjoy close proximity to the numerous restaurants, galleries, and shops available in the historic Old Market shopping district. Additionally, the employment opportunities of Creighton University, the Qwest Center, and the new TD Ameritrade Park Omaha stadium are within easy walking or commuting distance, making the Beebe + Runyan a cost-effective choice for Omaha professionals as well.
