Canopy Lofts

West Haymarket

Canopy Lofts

Canopy Lofts is part of an eight-block expansion of Lincoln’s popular Historic Haymarket District. Public and private investment is converting over 400 acres of underutilized railroad property on the western edge of the Haymarket District into an active entertainment and living district on the doorstep of the new Pinnacle Bank Arena. Traction Development Partners are leading the development expansion which includes a new hotel, retail, office, condos and apartments.

Sinclair Hille Architects, in association with Encompass Architects, provided architectural design services for Canopy Lofts. The Lofts are part of a U-shaped building on the block bordered by R Street on the north, Q Street on the south and Canopy Drive on the east. The six-story mixed-use building includes first-floor retail and 72 units of loft-style apartments for rent on floors two through six. Residents have access to a private rooftop area, community rooms, as well as private, secured parking. The apartments cater to students and include one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units.


I enjoyed working with SHA on the Canopy Street Project.  It was a very complex project which required both large scale design thought as well as a focus on small details. Their professionalism impressed me as well as all of the other clients in the project from restaurants, to hotel operations through condo buyers, SHA continued to move the project forward and solve problems with all in mind.  As a licensed architect myself I really appreciated their willingness to partner with me and listen to my design ideas while improving the direction time and time again. Quite simply, Canopy Street would not have been nearly as successful without SHA’s talented staff.
