Applied Underwriters’ mixed-use, 500-acre development on land formerly part of Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska reached a milestone in its construction Tuesday as the company’s own operational headquarters on the site was topped out.

Topping out refers to when the last beam is placed atop a structure during its construction.

Applied plans to move up to 2,000 employees into the 270,000-square-foot facility. The sits among public nature trails and lawns, corporate headquarters, residential developments and retail shops in Heartwood Preserve.

Anticipated completion of the site and occupancy is slated for 2024.

Located off the Applied Parkway exit from West Dodge Road, the development is considered among the largest undertaken in the nation over the past decade.

“This is an inspiring moment for all of us at Applied and for all of those who have worked so hard to realize this grand success in the making, Heartwood Preserve, whose name itself denotes its character,” said Steve Menzies, Chairman and Founder of Applied and creator of Heartwood Preserve.

The operations headquarters is centered upon its campus of 50 acres of land and has 1,000 parking stalls, all underground and purposely not visible. Its systems are ahead of the state of the art in every way and are also placed out of sight as a further aesthetic consideration, leaving the vistas and natural settings clearly unobstructed.

The 270,000-square-foot, 5-floor building features 16-foot and higher ceilings throughout, enabling natural light to shine through the acres of floor-to-ceiling electrochromic glass encasing the structure. The building demanded what is believed to be the largest installation of electrochromic glass in the US.
