Bonus update. The elevator is finished. This will carry the vertical pods from Old Market Greens under the restaurant to the kitchen area. Absolutely the freshest greens EVER! The bathrooms use a dimensional type of tile. Pretty cool. The tiles are the same size, but have varying thicknesses throughout the tile, giving them a “dimensional” quality. Picture window is installed on the wall going down to Old Market Greens (OMG). The window will showcase the OMG sign. There will be a separate entrance for OMG customers just inside gather-omaha. OMG will supply Gather-Omaha it’s greens, but it will also have carry-out available during restaurant hours.
Lots of updates. Best one is the front patio area being removed. The old metal (uncomfortable) seating is gone. Started to paint ceiling. Bar is taking shape.
Pictures don’t show it, but it’s coming together. Central air and heat is working. Most of the drywall is completed. As we’ve been building, we’re discovering lots of historical pieces of architecture throughout the building that have been covered up over time. One of our favorites is the center ceiling beam. It had been painted and covered up for years. We were going to paint it, but after looking at it, we decided to leave it as is. It matched our gather character. Also the north wall has so much to say, hate to cover it up. Oh if this wall could talk, the stories it could share!
Building is really starting to cook. Most of the drywall and electrical is finished. We also have a back deck area along with front street seating. Bonus for you! Also did you know Gather In Omaha will have a vertical farm in the basement (a.k.a. Old Market Greens)? Oh yeah! It will supply Gather In Omaha with freshest, crispest, all-natural greens + you can buy greens as take out too.
