A three-story, L-shaped building, the Melrose was completed during Omaha's first apartment "boom" period from 1912 to 1917.
Two separate three-story buildings are positioned adjacent to each other in an L-shape with a large courtyard between the buildings. Both buildings are made of brown brick with identical limestone and darker brown brick detailing, with the west building being larger than the north one. There are balconies flanking each building's entryway with "The Melrose" inscribed above.
The Melrose was rehabilitated in 1991, with virtually no alterations to the exterior and only minor changes in the interior.
