The Selby Apartments consists of three two-story, four unit concrete block buildings arranged in an inverted U-shaped court with main facades facing 37th Street, Marcy Street, and 37th Avenue in midtown Omaha, Nebraska. Constructed in 1942-43, the complex occupies roughly one half of a city block approximately one half block south of Leavenworth Street, a major east-west thoroughfare and former street-car line. Two blocks north of Marcy Street is the Field Club, a late 19th century private golf course; its associated residential neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. The Selby Apartment complex consists of three contributing buildings; as a whole it exhibits a high degree of historic and architectural integrity.
