Built in 1974, the building is structured to accommodate almost any space need that a tenant requires. It provides 300,000 square feet of office space in the highly visible and trafficked Central Business District of downtown Lincoln.


The main entrance is on the west side on Centennial Mall. Entrants must show a valid photo ID and clear airport-style security.
