Description
Originally occupied by the New York Life Insurance Company, the building was purchased by the Kountze Brothers's Omaha National Bank in 1909. Constructed in 1888-89, the building was designed in the Renaissance Revival style by Frederick Elmer Hill (1857-1929) of the New York City architectural firm of McKim, Mead, and White. The firm designed an identical office tower, the New York Life Building (Kansas City, Missouri), and was Omaha's first ten-story structure. Omaha National Bank merged with another bank and moved out of the building in 1972. After being vacated it was slated for demolition. However, the building was rehabilitated in 1978 and converted to office space. Today, called The Omaha Building, it is home to the law firm of Kutak Rock. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omaha_National_Bank_Building
