Construction on a new 80,000-square-foot, multi-tenant building at Nebraska Innovation Campus ( is underway. Dan Duncan, NIC’s executive director, said the building continues the momentum of the long-term build-out plan for the research campus. The newest facility – NIC’s fifth – was announced Aug. 30 and is planned to open in late summer 2018 northeast of 21st Street and Transformation Drive. Overall, construction of the campus began in 2012, and within three years, 380,000 square feet of office, conference center, lab, pilot plant and greenhouse space was completed. This year the campus has added restaurant space and welcomed The Mill Coffee and Bistro. The Biotech Connector wet lab research space also has been completed and is being populated.NIC is currently home to a diverse group of 30 partners, both private and public entities. At full build-out, NIC will be a 2.2-million square-foot campus. “We’ve started construction on the next building at NIC because we’re almost out of space in the current completed constructed space,” Duncan said. “NIC is 100 percent leased with a few small areas available for sub-lease. Space in this new building is starting to fill up.”
