Live the Dream in Lincoln

One of the most exciting things about the Leighton District is the opportunity to live at The Flats! The Flats are a luxury-tier apartment community nestled comfortably within Leighton District. We know there are plenty of places to live in Lincoln, but we can’t help but think that The Flats are like nothing in the area! The Flats offer spacious studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and private-entry loft floor plans, making it an ideal living option for a variety of individuals and families. These apartments are all enhanced by The Flats’ premium amenities, including a resort-style pool and sundeck, controlled-access parking, bike storage, community lounges, a dedicated study room, and a state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness room.

Located in one of the most beautiful parts of the city, these apartments sport sleek, modern design, and were built with the aesthetics of the neighborhood in mind. With bars and restaurants on the main level, fun is always right outside your door at the Flats.

Flavors You Won’t Find Anywhere Else

Leighton District is the home of an innovative new restaurant concept from local culinary collective, Dead Presidents Group. Three restaurants with uniquely curated styles can be found at Leighton District, and are built on a “shared kitchen” concept, in which our incredible chefs serve the three restaurants all from one cutting-edge kitchen.

Daq Shack

Ever just wish you could leave your everyday life behind for a while and escape to somewhere a little warmer, a little more relaxing? That’s exactly what we had in mind with the Daq Shack. With lobster, hand-breaded fried chicken sandwiches, and a vibrant menu of unique, hand-crafted daiquiris, you can take a delicious, tropical break from real life.

Lincoln’s Pub

We’re taking the idea of “bar food” to a much higher (and more delicious!) level. Lincoln’s Pub offers artisan wood-fired pizza and unique items like cheese curds with chipotle mayo, chimichurri chicken wings, and Onries, our delicious take on homemade fries and onion rings. Add a chalkboard full of robust draft beers and you might never want to leave!

Franco’s Fresh Mexican

This delicious concept blends fresh Mexican flavors with a modern twist, featuring tasty tacos, signature margaritas, and a bright atmosphere! Head over to Presidents Takeout next door to Daq Shack & Lincoln’s Pub to pick up online orders away from the dine-in action.
