The Downtown Lincoln Association (DLA) announced the winners of their 2015 Downtown Impact Awards at their annual meeting. DLA’s Impact Awards recognize businesses or individuals that have made a significant contribution to downtown Lincoln. NEBCO was awarded the Significant Development award for 3 Landmark Centre.
The 3 Landmark Centre development was completed in 2015 and took several talented groups and hardworking individuals to complete the project, including: Sampson Construction, Clark Enersen, and NEBCO’s development team and material companies.
The building on 1128 Lincoln Mall includes 110,000 premium square feet of Class A office space and currently houses the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Rembolt Ludtke, Unico Group and US Senator Ben Sasse.
Current and future tenants will certainly enjoy several building amenities including covered visitor parking, a top floor penthouse suite with an outdoor patio and a courtyard featuring an illuminated cage, a structure filled with aggregate that emphasized, in art form, the connection between NEBCO’s real estate and material operations.
The origins of 3 Landmark Centre date back to the late 1920’s when the first parcels of land were acquired by George P. Abel, Sr. In 1964, the City passed a bond issue combining the city of Lincoln and Lancaster county government functions to its present location at 555 S. 10th. This event triggered a renewed interest by NEBCO in acquiring additional property along Lincoln Mall between the Capitol and the City/County Offices and the construction of 2 Landmark Centre. NEBCO’s 1 Landmark Centre was developed in 2002. In 2012, NEBCO purchased the last parcel of property needed in making Landmark 3 Centre possible, completing the Lincoln Mall vision of George P. Abel, Jr.
In the end, the building’s address says it all, which shares the birthday of Betty Abel, whose motto has always been, “When you do something, do it well.”
