Steel beams and construction workers have taken over the area just south of the Pinnacle Bank Arena

Thursday marked the "official" groundbreaking of a big project, a hybrid of sorts in the west haymarket area, where construction is in full swing.

"I want to welcome Hyatt Place and Hobson Place to the west haymarket and the city of Lincoln," City Councilman and JPA member Gene Carroll said.

"This is a great economic development driver that generates jobs and creates financial growth in our community."

More than 250 jobs to be exact, working on what will be part hotel, part condos. They range from about $200,000 each to almost $900,000.

Hyatt Place will occupy the main level through the 4th level with more than 100 guestrooms. Hobson Place will take floors 5 through 7, with 29 luxury condominiums, some of which will take up two floors and more than 2,000 square feet.

The team at WR Real Estate even got a big time former Husker on board, with Ndamukong Suh putting his construction management degree to use helping builders.

"I love being able to be a part of Lincoln and growing it and building it and I see this as a second home to me," Suh said, who's already claimed one of the units.

In addition to Hyatt and Hobson Place, the Canopy Lofts are well underway. The six-floor building offers modern apartments for rent.

There's also The Railyard, which will serve as an entertainment hot spot.

All of this coming together to give Lincoln a whole new look and feel.

"Investments like this really improve our community and the city of Lincoln is thankful," Carroll said.

Both Hyatt and Hobson Place are set to be completed in early 2014--the Canopy Lofts and The Railyard in August of this year.
