Crews begin tearing down historic Gold’s Building in downtown Lincoln

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The partial demolition of the historic Gold’s Building in downtown Lincoln has begun.

The building, which has stood at the corner near 11th and O Streets since 1924, is being redeveloped to “maintain habitability.”

According to the city’s redevelopment plan, the rehabilitated building will include about 183 multifamily housing units.
