13 Good Options

The Option 13—formerly known as The Option—is finally on the verge of reality. The project that was born as a six-story multi-use building will now take the form of two, three-story buildings holding a total of 13 lofts. The project demonstrates two truths about Downtown Lincoln: 1) projects Downtown tend to be announced with a bang but end up being built as a shadow of their former selves; and 2) there is continued demand for upscale housing in Downtown Lincoln. The importance of the latter truth should not be overlooked. A solid housing market is critical to the long-term sustainability of Downtown Lincoln. Permanent residents increase the number and diversity of shopping options Downtown, and they improve safety and cleanliness Downtown by establishing the area as a neighborhood, rather than just an entertainment or business district.
