Construction of a three-story, 80,000-square-foot modern office building at Nebraska Innovation Campus is “on time and on budget,” a project manager said.
The $15.3 million building, referred to internally by developers as Innovation Campus’s “Site Development Lease 3” by Tetrad Property Group, should be ready for tenants this fall, said Andy Widman.
"This is just a shell," Widman said. “Once the walls and roof are on, there’s nothing but a few common areas to finish."
The office building, modeled on the headquarters of several Silicon Valley tech companies like Pinterest and DropBox will be “blank space for future tenants” to build out how they see fit.
Hausmann Construction crews expect to turn the building just north and east of 21st Street and Transformation Drive over to Tetrad this September, Widman said.
Although no tenants have been announced, Widman said Tetrad is working with companies about how the new building could be configured to meet their needs.
Nebraska Innovation Campus executive director Dan Duncan said last year the research park has high demand for small offices for startup companies.
The as-of-yet unnamed building is designed to allow for Innovation Campus to quickly adapt to the needs of new tenants.
