Speedway Properties and Nelnet partnered to create the Telegraph District, an exciting new space to live and work situated on downtown Lincoln’s eastern edge. The project revitalized the former Lincoln Telephone & Telegraph’s industrial building, restoring downtown's classic brick and iron feel. The new home of Nelnet & Allo Communications invigorates an active mixed-use urban neighborhood, and offers restaurant, retail, office and unique housing opportunities throughout the area.

Speedway Properties, Nelnet, and the Lincoln Haymarket Development Corporation have partnered to redevelop the area south of O and west of Canopy Street into what will be known as Canopy Park. The revitalized area will include 190 market-rate apartments, 40 affordable housing units, and 11,000 square feet of retail and office space. An attached public parking garage, beautiful downtown views, and shared courtyard space with outdoor grills and fire pits make up some of the unique amenities this project will add to downtown Lincoln’s thriving community. Canopy Park is scheduled to open Spring 2021.
