Catalyst One Building (Lincoln, NE) – Cordova Stone

 

Catalyst One Building Built with Cordova Stone

When the design team at Sinclair Hille Architects began planning the first high-rise structure to be built in downtown Lincoln in over 20 years, they drew inspiration from the architectural landmarks of the existing financial district. Positioned adjacent to the entrance to the University of Nebraska, the façade of the multi-use building is a modern mix of precast columns and Cordova Stone cladding on the bottom floors and metallic exterior skin with lighted metal ribbing on the top residential floors.

The Cordova Stone offered an economical alternative to natural limestone with a look that mimicked the quality of stone so well, the supplier received a number of calls inquiring about the "natural stone" used on the project.

The 10-story building provides nearly 20,000 SF of retail space on the first level, six floors of parking, and three floors of Scandinavian-inspired residential housing, primarily occupied by students and faculty of the university.
