55+ Independent Living Community
Affordable Living In A Parklike Setting

Welcome to North Gate Garden Estates!!

Lincoln Developer, Larry Price, built North Gate Garden Estates starting in 1995, as a 17-acre retirement community.  The community consists of a 140-unit condominium facility, including 20 town homes to the east of the main building (Hollyhock), and 32 town homes to the west (Marigold).  It was part of Larry's mission, vision, and now legacy, to provide seniors with a sense of security with a keyed entry building, along with being an affordable housing option in the community of Lincoln. 

North Gate is located west of 27th Street, at 2425 Folkways Boulevard.  We're just south of the Autumn Wood development, and west of Country Inn and Suites, in a park-like setting that is also close to everything an active senior wants and needs.  North Gate is just minutes away from shopping, banks, churches, restaurants, medical services, hotels, a library, and Interstate 80.  "We're country quiet, but city close." 

The main building has beautiful, nearly soundproof condominiums, with spacious master bedrooms with baths, walk-in closets, full kitchens, stacked washers and dryers, decks or patios, and fire-protection sprinkler systems.  There are even additional storage areas for some of the items you still can't part with, just down the hall from your unit.  The 134-stall parking garage underneath the condominium is enormous, has access from the elevators at both ends and in the center.  A few of our residents even use it to ride their bicycles during all kinds of weather. 

As in any community, there are great places to gather at North Gate Garden Estates.  Popular with many are the Puzzle Room, Lobby/Reception area, Family Room, Dining Room, Activity Room, and the "conversation areas" in our atypically wide hallways.  Grab a buddy and go to one of the two exercise rooms we have to get your workout in for the day.  There is also a Plant Nook for wintering your patio plants, or Garden Plots "out back" for those of you who still like to go play out in the dirt.  Many here benefit from the harvest, in part because we have so many that produce such a bounty from their crops.

North Gate boasts a population similar to any small town in Nebraska, which at the present is around 250 residents.  These residents have virtually all of the skills and knowledge you may find in a small town.  You could make friends with a homemaker, police officer, librarian, secretary, grocer, butcher, baker, farmer, rancher, attorney, teacher, professor, medical professional, or even a dancer.  Their backgrounds and careers may be different, but they all share the common virtue of neighborliness, and contribute as they can to our "town."

Are you ready to let go of the mower and shovel?  If the answer is yes, we have one-and two-bedroom condominium units with wonderful views (or possibly a town home)  available for those of you who are at least 55 years of age, and desire to live independently.  You just may be the newest neighbors we've been looking forward to meeting!!
