Inspired by the energy of downtown Omaha and the desire to contribute to its dynamic urban core, Mutual of Omaha is developing their new corporate headquarters tower on a prominent site immediately west of the recently reopened Gene Leahy Mall at the RiverFront. Upon completion, the next-generation 677-foot headquarters tower will be the tallest in Nebraska and in the surrounding states of Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, South Dakota and Wyoming.

Considered the first significant addition to downtown in a generation, the headquarters is expected to be the largest single infusion of a workforce in downtown. The Fortune 300 insurance and financial services company envisions their new facility as a modern hub that will bring people together to foster teamwork and collaboration; creativity and innovation; and employee engagement and productivity.

An inviting street-level lobby will feature a conference center and an “experience center” to share Mutual’s history, brand, and impact. A five-floor sky lobby will offer food service, a fitness center, wellness services, technical support, and flexible conference and meeting spaces. Landscaped outdoor terraces on the sky lobby’s16th to18th floors will provide sweeping views in addition to outdoor dining, and meeting and fitness spaces. Offering grand vistas, a 44th-floor double-height conference facility will feature a large conference room as well as a variety of meeting spaces.

The Mutual of Omaha tower is sited to take advantage of a new city streetcar line that will run from downtown to the riverfront. Construction on is expected to begin by next year, with an opening by 2026.

The Joinery celebrates the inherent strength and natural benefits of mass timber design. As the first commercially available building in Silicon Valley to feature the low-carbon structural system, its design is a series of interlocking volumes with distinctive framed moments that create a healthy and inspired balance of immersive environments. Reminiscent of the end grain of a wood beam, the accentuated bays serve as a cross-section of the Joinery’s experience where people can gather, reflect, and connect with nature.

2+U is a Class-A office tower, envisioned as a first-of-its-kind urban Village, located in one of the most strategic locations in downtown Seattle.

The RO has been master-planned as a best-in-class, urban, multi-use destination on a 740,000 gsf site near the affluent Greenway Plaza and River Oaks District

HPE’s new corporate campus consists of two five-story high-performance buildings joined by a glass bridge connector at each level for easy accessibility and connectivity.

This master plan of an urban campus has been carefully crafted to deliver an environment that fosters a rich diversity of uses, activities, and exchanges. The overall site has been envisioned as a place “where people gather and create their future.” The resulting communal space is most appropriately categorized as “public realm.”

The proposed redevelopment of this urban campus will not simply yield a collection of new office buildings, apartments, shops, and hotels. Rather, it has been thoughtfully designed as a uniquely interrelated world-class mixed-use destination where built elements create a synergetic community. As a place for interaction and innovation, the resulting extensive public realm of this new 21st century campus will be capable of hosting a range of activities -- from local events for the community to city-wide festivals.

To facilitate such spontaneous events and activities, communal spaces have been flexibly designed to allow them to occur naturally. Plazas, pocket parks, pathways, and even building lobbies and roof terraces will be able to host a range of unique experiences, including pop-up retail, temporary food venues and performances. The master plan is designed to target LEED-NC Gold.
