A developer has plans to build a 20-story retail, office and residential project on the north side of the Que Place parking garage in downtown Lincoln.
The $30 million Lied Place Residences redevelopment project would include a restaurant on the ground floor, about 4,500 square feet of office space on the second, third and fourth floors and about 40 condominium units on the upper 16 floors.
“The historic transformation of downtown Lincoln continues with another landmark building that will again change our skyline,” Mayor Chris Beutler says. “This key location, across the street from the Lied Center, has been vacant for five years and we were hopeful someone would come forward with the right project for this challenging site. This is that project, a major redevelopment that will add to the beauty and vibrancy of our downtown.”
The restaurant will take up 3,000 square feet on the first floor. The condominiums will be available in one, two, and three-bedroom units.
The project will be reviewed by the City Urban Design Committee and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission in November. The City Council is expected to consider the project and hold a public hearing in January.
If approved, a redevelopment agreement would then be submitted for City Council review next year. The project could start in the spring of 2019 and be completed in early 2021.
