Another familiar part of the scenery on Dewey St. is changing.

Demolition began Tuesday along the one-ways at the corner of Dewey and Francis, the former home of the Lincoln County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Attitudes Hair Salon and various restaurants.

Owner Mark Wilkinson said in the future the lot will resemble the Cottonwood Plaza strip mall north of Wal-Mart, or the Riverside Plaza south of Wal-Mart. Wilkinson Development also owns those properties.

The two tiers of motel rooms that line the boundary of the property will stand and continue to operate, he said.

The motel has been closed for nearly a month for work on plumbing, electrical and sewer systems. It is expected to re-open by the end of this week. A new lobby and office is being built and room upgrades are underway, Wilkinson said.

Wilkinson said the new mini-mall might contain a little bit of everything.

“We’re going to wait for the people that are going in there to make the announcements, and we are always looking for new tenants,” he said.

In October, Wilkinson had said he was working with First National Bank on the possibility of a new four-lane drive up bank there, but the deal was not sealed.

Across Dewey St., Nebraskaland National Bank's new main bank, three-stories-tall, continues to take shape.
