Our current featured property;

Lincoln Station. The former Chicago Burlington and Quincy train depot at 7 th and "P" originally constructed in 1927, is the prominent anchor of Lincoln's Historic Haymarket district. The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad still occupies a major portion of this property, as well as Lincoln's AMTRAK passenger station. 

Our purchase, development and renovation of Lincoln Station in 1989 introduced non railroad uses for the first time.  Currently, several fine business operations occupy the street level of the building including Burlington Arcade Antiques, jtk's a premier dining establishment, featuring steaks, seafood selections and nationally renowned wine bar; the Lincoln Visitor's Center which provides tourists and other visitors with information about the community; and the beautifully restored 2 story high passenger waiting room is now one of the most popular locations in the city for wedding receptions, parties and other gatherings of up to 800 people, known as The Great Hall.

A huge brick mural, Iron Horse Legacy, located in Iron Horse Park on the north end of the development is a favorite stop among visitors to our city.  Stop down any Saturday morning from April to September for the Farmer's market held in front of Lincoln Station on 7th street, which is the largest Farmer's Market in the midwest.
