Historic Lincoln Haymarket

In 1885 the Raymond Brothers opened their wholesale grocery business at 8th and O street in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska. The painted wall sign high on the west wall and herringbone-pattern freight doors on the west fa├žade are among some of the rare surviving features. In 1951 the Raymond Brothers officially closed their business. Over the next 65 years, the historic 4-story building changed hands a few time, most recently operating as storage as it withered away. The building is one of Lincolns grandest historic 19th century structures.

Building Restoration

BIC Development purchased the property in early 2018 with plans to restore the Raymond Brothers building to its former glory. BIC partnered with the City of Lincoln on the restoration project which included a utility relocation in the alley and a new dock and parking on the North and West sides of the building. The team collaborated with the Historic Preservation Commission to maintain the character of the Raymond Brothers building. Care was required in the restoration of the exterior. This work included tuckpointing of the 130 year old brick and completely new windows. All of this was done with the original appearance of the historic Lincoln building in mind.

Custom Downtown Lincoln Condos

The Raymond Brothers building provides over 6,000 square feet of commercial and retail space on the first floor. The space includes soaring ceilings, exposed brick, and visible historic structure assuring the charm of the original building is on full display. This renovated retail and office space further ties the residential building to the bustling Haymarket district in Lincoln.

On the top three floors, BIC Construction and BIC Custom Homes created 15 fully custom condos. These Haymarket condos quickly sold out, bringing new residents to bustling downtown Lincoln, NE. The condos each carry a unique design and historical character that captures the original essence of the Raymond Brothers building. Additionally, BIC created a 2,000 SF rooftop terrace for residents to enjoy the sweeping views and Nebraska sunsets.

Build with BIC Custom Homes

The Raymond Brothers project was a close partnership between the three BIC divisions: Custom Homes, Construction, and Development. Our entire team was thrilled to add value to the city we call home by restoring such a historic building.

The BIC Custom Homes team builds across the Lincoln area. If you are considering a custom home project, we would be thrilled to partner with you. Our team has built many custom homes with the same attention to detail as we put into these custom condos. Contact us today to set up an informational meet and greet.
