The tallest building in Nebraska it’s coming in downtown Omaha
OMAHA, Nebraska — In January, construction begins on the new 800,000-square-foot headquarters for Mutual of Omaha.
Gaye Lannan, a resident of Omaha, remarked, “It looks like it’s going to stand out a lot, but I’m not sure.”
The new structure will be 677 feet tall and will be part of the skyline.
“Large, like I stated, it will tower over the others,” Gaye stated.
The 44-story structure will have employee-services-oriented office and meeting space known as the Sky Lobby, as well as parking for 2,200 vehicles.
Omaha resident Doree Doolittle stated, “It makes sense to build up instead of out, and in terms of parking, it makes sense to construct multi-level parking garages as opposed to, you know, a one-level lot.”
Evenings and weekends, according to Mutual of Omaha, the parking will be open to the public.
Omaha resident Joe Lannan stated, “Parking has always been a problem, but that’s a good problem since it indicates a lot of people are downtown.”
Mutual of Omaha stated in a press statement that the new building’s operational expenses will be lower than those of the current headquarters.
“However, as educators who hold a library in high regard, the loss of the library elicits conflicting emotions,” Gaye stated.
Numerous locals are happy about the expansion of the downtown area and the arrival of a new skyscraper, but they are sad to see the library close.
“It is lovely at night, and if they’re going to build the highest structure in Omaha, you know, surpassing the Woodmen and the First National Bank tower, it makes sense to construct it adjacent to the other two towers,” Doolittle remarked.
Mutual of Omaha stated that this structure will be the highest not only in our city, but also in the neighboring states of Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
