New Hudl building

More than 350 Hudl employees work on the top four floors of the company's new headquarters at Canopy and P streets. Nelnet occupies the second floor.

A Lincoln development project and a longtime local commercial real estate agent are among the honorees at Friday's CRE Summit at CenturyLink Center in downtown Omaha.

Hudl's new $35 million corporate headquarters at 600 P St. in the West Haymarket will be honored as the 2018 CRE Summit Development of the Year, Lincoln winner.

The seven-story, 170,000-square-foot building opened in December and is the largest office building to open downtown in several years. The building is home to Hudl and some Nelnet employees, and a third company will be moving in soon. The first floor has retail space that currently is vacant. Nelnet, along with Speedway Properties, WRK LLC and Chief Industries developed the project.

The other Lincoln honoree is George Hancock, who retired last year after a more than 50-year career in the Lincoln commercial real estate market.

Hancock, who will be one of five 2018 inductees into the CRE Summit Hall of Fame, started his real estate career in 1961 and got his broker's license in 1967. He worked as an associate broker at NAI FMA Realty for more than 30 years.

In addition to his real estate sales work, Hancock also was a licensed real estate appraiser and helped write the Nebraska Appraiser License Law, which went into effect in 1974.

He also served on the city's Board of Zoning Appeals for 14 years, as well as on boards of numerous industry groups and charitable organizations.
