Omaha's century-old creamery warehouse for sale at $2.6M

Apr 17, 2018

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Sellers of a more than century-old warehouse in downtown Omaha envision turning the former creamery into a mixed-use apartment complex with retail space.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the old Fairmont Creamery Building is on the market for $2.6 million.

The fate of one of the area's last industrial brick warehouses is up to the buyer. But many foresee the 132,000-square-foot (12,260-square-meter) facility becoming trendy loft apartments on top of street-level shops.

Ryan Kuehl of Investors Realty is marketing the property. He says the area is becoming more pedestrian-friendly under the city's plan to spruce up a major street nearby beginning in 2020.

Kuehl says transforming the space into high-end apartments could join other residential projects trending downtown. He says there aren't many rehabilitation opportunities like this left.
