Telegraph District

Telegraph District

Speedway Properties and Nelnet hired The Clark Enersen Partners to help plan and design a redevelopment project called the Telegraph District near 21st and N streets in Lincoln, Nebraska. The Telegraph District will include office and retail space, and many types of housing, including owner-occupied townhomes, rental apartments, lofts and live/work units. The project will transform the eastern edge of downtown into a vibrant community intended to be a catalyst for additional investment along the Antelope Valley Project.
 
The development will reflect the architecture of the older buildings, including the historic Lincoln Telephone and Telegraph Co. warehouse and the old Roberts Dairy. The name­—Telegraph District—honors the impact of telephone companies on the local economy for more than 100 years. The redevelopment project will be visibly cohesive and gracefully blend Lincoln’s past with the city’s future.
