The city of Lincoln is considering a new retail center that would include a restaurant space.

New retail development proposed in Lincoln

Undeveloped land in Lincoln could soon be home to a new retail center with restaurant space.

After a public meeting on Wednesday at 6 pm, the Lincoln Planning Commission will decide whether to approve a conditional use and development permit for a proposed development called Lincoln Retail Center.

The project site, which is approximately 1.8 acres, would be located on the southwest corner Third Street and Joiner Parkway, in Lincoln. It would be adjacent to an established residential area, Creekside Oaks Primary School, and the Lincoln Community Center.

TKF & Associates of Elk Grove, California, has submitted a proposal that calls for construction of a commercial retail building measuring 12,053 square feet and a stand-alone building with a floor area 1,500 square feet. The renderings show that the retail building will include multiple shops and the standalone restaurant building will include a drive through.

On Tuesday, TKF & Associates representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

Lincoln State has received proposals for site improvements that include landscaping of the site and streetfrontage, construction of curbs and sidewalks, and sound walls adjacent to existing homes. The staff report does not mention any tenants or a construction timeline.

The project, if approved, would provide additional retail options to an area that is largely residential in Lincoln. Joiner Parkway Plaza, which includes a Chevron Gas Station and Brick & Barrel Kitchen + Bar, is a few hundred yards away from the proposed location. Lincoln Crossing Marketplace, a little more than a mile from the proposed site, is the next closest retail center. It includes tenants like Sprouts Farmers Markets, Ross Dress for Less and TJ Maxx.
