The new consolidated HOME Real Estate building at 5322 O St. is now open and ready for business.
The signature building in Lincoln’s Midtown area is a 20,000-square-foot office, designed to accommodate HOME’s clients and about 200 agents—both those who work more in the office and those who are more mobile. The modern design is filled with natural light through the building’s windows and interior glass walls.
“We are thrilled with the beautiful, state-of-the-art new office for our HOME Real Estate brand,” said General Manager Shannon Harner. “We anticipate this new space will foster synergy and allow us to provide our clients with an unparalleled real estate experience.”
The move is an extension of HOME Real Estate’s longtime support of growth and revitalization in Lincoln. Realty Trust Group developed the entire area at the corner of 52nd and O Streets, which housed the Villager Hotel until its deconstruction in 2009. Mike Marsh of Realty Trust Group said the development is “a testament to Mayor Beutler’s growth initiative for Lincoln to have the very best.”
"Realty Trust Group is thrilled to have worked with best-in-class group of tenants including HOME Real Estate, Fresh Thyme, Cheddar's, US Cellular, Scooter's and an outstanding contractor (NGC)," Marsh said.
HOME Real Estate and Realty Trust Group contracted with New Generation Construction (NGC), who started building the office in October 2015.
“Developing a strong working relationship with the end-users was key for a successful project,” said NGC Project Manager Brian Semerad. “Open lines of communication allowed for the project to be looked at from all facets to ensure that decisions were thought through and intentional. This attention to detail allowed for their vision to be carried out for their present needs, as well as future flexibility.”
HOME Real Estate will maintain three smaller, unstaffed satellite locations around Lincoln to accommodate agents and clients in the surrounding neighborhoods. They are located at 5609 S. 27th St., Ste. A2; 5901 N. 27th St.; and 4501 S. 86th St. in Lincoln.
