More expansion is coming to the West Haymarket, but the City's newest project may surprise you.

Mayor Chris Beutler announced the plan for a $19.4 million senior living center Thursday morning. The 8-story building will be built on the southeast corner of Canopy and O streets, wrapping around the existing parking garage just south of the Harris Overpass.

"This is another major milestone in the ongoing development of the West Haymarket area," Beutler said.

The structure will house 18,000 total square feet of retail and office space in addition to 100 housing units for seniors, a group developers think needs to be included in the West Haymarket community.

"Living downtown can be fun, living in an active area can be fun, and for seniors that's especially inviting," Developer and Argent Group President Carl Groesbeck said.

The Journey Senior Living Development Team (JSLDT) will be taking care of the development. JSLDT consists of The Argent Group of Chicago Illinois, RPM Management of Bourbonnais Illinois, and Speedway Properties of Lincoln.  The Argent Group is currently developing the housing/mixed use project on the block bounded by 10th, 11th, “M” and “N” streets in downtown Lincoln.

Area business owners are excited that the Southern Haymarket area is getting more attention.

"We've always been kind of on the edge of all this activity in the West Haymarket," Fringe & Tassel owner Phyllis Spahn said. "It will be interesting to find out if that brings us more foot traffic and a little bit more interest in our street."

Steve Blazek, who owns a wine shop across the street from the proposed building site, says the area is in desperate need of more retail stores.

"For shoppers, out-of-towners that come in, they look at all the restaurants and they say where can we go and hang out," Blazek said, "so little clothing stores or boutiques would really be a boom for this area."

If the plans are approved by the City Council, construction would begin next spring and be finished in the summer of 2016.
