Design Achievement - Moselle at the Edge is part of a large revitalization effort, River’s Edge, which is uniquely positioned along the Missouri River between the cities of Council Bluffs, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska. The design features two distinct towers and thoughtfully leverages the river running between the cities as an asset. Tower One houses 68 luxury condominiums and Tower Two offers 120 market-rate rental apartments. The towers share an amenity deck and parking structure. The structural system is a poured-in-place post-tension concrete. This allows for greater flexibility, durability, and sound and noise control while enabling more units to be built vertically within height constraints. The exterior cladding system is a high-performance curtain wall, ventilated rain-screen and architectural precast paneling. The projects proximity to River’s Edge ensures that retail, office and additional residential communities are conveniently located to residents of Moselle at the Edge. The Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge also is within walking distance to connect residents to Downtown Omaha’s Historic Old Market and events district.
Scope Summary – The scope of work for this project consisted of two, 15-story residential towers with a common 2-story podium totaling 400,000 SF. The project is served by a central plant water source heat pump loop providing heating and cooling to individual living units as well as common spaces. Each living unit is equipped with a 2-ton water-to-air heat pump. Dedicated outside air-handling systems are used for ventilation of living and common spaces. DLR Group provided architecture, interior design, and structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering.
