After taking bids, the University of Nebraska Medical Center leadership selects the development team of "Koelbel and Company" and "GreenSlate Development" to lead the renovation and redevelopment of the former Omaha Steel Works property along South Saddle Creek Rd.
The "Lund Company" will lead all property management efforts.
The $45 million, 140,000-square-foot project, just one part of the innovation hub concept, will include a food hall and market, event center and collaborative office space.
The Med Center’s Innovation Hub will contain "UNeMed;UNeTech," which coordinates business startups from UNMC and University of Nebraska at Omaha research; "UNeHealth," UNMC's contracting and fiscal arm for industry-funded clinical trials; and The "Nebraska Business Development Center."
Design work will begin immediately, with the goal of breaking ground by end of 2021.
