Tower Square

Lincoln Community Foundation

Tower Square

The $2.6 million urban park was designed by artist Jun Kaneko, a Japanese-born artist known internationally for large-scale ceramic pieces. The City of Lincoln selected Sinclair Hille Architects and their creative team to collaborate with Kaneko to implement his vision for the new public space.  Located on 13th and ā€˜Pā€™ streets in downtown Lincoln, Tower Square is highlighted by the 57-foot-tall, multi-colored, internally illuminated glass tower named Ascent - created by Kaneko for the project. The park hosts a wide variety of public events including farmers markets, yoga sessions, tailgate parties, concerts and movies.  Between events the square serves as a location for informal gathering with flexible seating for up to 70 people and wireless Internet access.

The design team from Sinclair Hille were sensitive to the unique needs of our business model and incorporated our requests within the overall design of our branch facility, a facility that was built not only for the needs of the bank branch today, but, also, with flexibility for what future demands might be.  We are extremely happy with the end product and appreciate the professionalism and attention to detail of the team from Sinclair Hille Architects.
