Bringing life back to 24th & Farnam: As upscale Even Hotel prepares to open, developers work to revive nearby properties
When retired heart surgeon Deepak Gangahar took his wife to see the downtown Omaha neighborhood where he wanted to build an upscale hotel, she fell silent, then asked: Would you be willing to move into this environment?
“Absolutely,” Gangahar recalled telling his wife, cardiologist Dr. Kiran Gangahar. He and business partner Kirti Trivedi saw something beyond the shady characters and boarded up storefronts lurking that evening around 24th and Farnam Streets.
They saw signs of renewal and promise in the corridors that connected burgeoning midtown neighborhoods to the west and downtown’s central business district to the east.
