2 Proposals Submitted from RFP
The two companies' joint proposal to bring apartments and a long-awaited downtown grocery store to Canopy and N streets, just south of the Harris Overpass, is one of two the city received last week.
The other is from Anant Enterprises, an Omaha-based company of which Lincoln heart surgeon Deepak Gangahar is a partner. Its proposal includes a hotel, apartments and retail space on the city block that is home to the Lumberworks parking garage.
The new Speedway/Nelnet proposal, named Lumberworks Lofts, calls for three buildings that combined would have 48 apartments, about 8,000 square feet of office space and about 15,000 square feet of retail space, including a potential 8,500-square-foot grocery store.
The Anant proposal also calls for three buildings to wrap the Lumberworks garage. Included in the proposal is a 100-room "upper-end limited service hotel," 40 apartments and retail space. The name of the hotel was not included, but the five hotels Anant has previously developed, three of which are in Lincoln, all carry the Holiday Inn brand name.
Someone with more technological capabilities can paste in the renderings. If not, follow the link. Not massive developments but a steady continuation of the momentum in the West Haymarket moving towards the south. My guess is the Speedway/Nelnet proposal is selected.
