Have you noticed our neighbor, the NICO - National Indemnity Company - Omaha -
The building at 3024 Harney Street, formerly known as the National Indemnity Company, has a historic past as the building where much of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway empire began.
That's pretty exciting.
According to a February 1, 2017, Omaha
I've always loved that building. Not just because it's a beautiful example of mid-century modern architecture, but there's a sophisticated groovy vibe about it.
I always expect Cary Grant to step right out of the glass front doors.
"Darling," he'd say to me, "Let's stroll up to the Grey Plume for a bite and a drink."
And then, before I can respond, he's manhandled into a huge Buick and off for an hour and 15 minutes of drama.
That's just how it always rolls for Cary.
Yet his suit never crushes.
"Our neighborhood is a renaissance of change and growth, and it's nice to see that some of our old building friends will remain our neighbors, standing tall, enjoying a bright future."
I'm so thankful that Todd and Mary Heistand (owners NuStyle Development) took on the task of repurposing this beautiful building.
Kudos to them for recognizing the value of local, historic architecture. (Don't get me started on the demolition of the Clarinda building! I'm still sad.)
