The Securities Building was constructed in 1916 by the Rose Realty Company. It is architecturally significant as a unique adaptation of the Sullivanesque style, being the only office building of this style in Omaha. This six-story building is an early example of the tripartite method of design inspired by Louis Sullivan.
