Lincoln’s block of 9th and P Streets might soon look very different; new projects to change the look in the area

LINCOLN, Nebraska – In the coming years, the block of 9th and P Streets in downtown Lincoln may appear differently. A plan to construct a new skyscraper was recently filed to the County Planning Commission and awaits approval.

“The amenities will be unlike anything we now have in Lincoln,” stated developer Steve Glenn.

The tower is ‘9 Lincoln Park,’ a 22-story skyscraper near the Haymarket.

The complex would be constructed on the site where the Melichar Gas Station has stood for almost fifty years.

“It would be a spectacular addition to Lincoln’s skyline, but it would also be respectful to the state building,” added Glenn.

The project will feature 36,000 square feet of office space, 70 luxury apartment units, a swimming pool and cabanas on the sixth floor, and a members-only club on the top floor.

“It’s revolutionary, but it’s also ageless,” Glenn said. “We don’t want this thing to seem like it was created in 2025; we want it to look brand new in 2045 and 2065.” Therefore, we believe and hope that the community will be quite proud of our endeavor.

The project is anticipated to cost approximately $87 million, which includes $23 million in tax increment financing (TIF), which allows developers to utilize future property taxes to pay for up-front expenses.

Rachel Walton of Lincoln stated, “I value the Haymarket much and want the best for it.”

It would alter the Lincoln skyline by becoming the second-tallest structure in the city, surpassing the recently constructed Lied Center residential building.

Residents of Lincoln are interested by what lies ahead.

Jackson Myers remarked, “I find it thrilling that the city is expanding.” I believe that is something we have not yet encountered in the city.

“I believe that the Haymarket has a typical downtown vibe, but I also believe that it might change the vibe or that it would remain unchanged.” Walton stated.

Next stages include obtaining planning commission and city council approval. If permitted, the developers plan to break ground this spring and have a 24-month development schedule.
