Historic Renovation & Adaptive Reuse to Apartments
Originally constructed in 1907, the Brewery Lofts is a historic renovation and adaptive reuse of a former brewery, meat packing operation, and grocery store. The building had been vacant for longer than it had actually operated as a brewery prior to Nebraska’s Prohibition of alcohol in 1917 and had fallen into a state of deterioration after it was vacated in the 1940’s.

SWD Architects developed an adaptive design for 35 new apartments that maintains the historically significant areas within the original building. The design preserves much of the original historic fabric and details throughout the building while also incorporating new modern apartment floor plans.
