Few notes. The Cancer Center has accent lighting that was pink last night I noticed. The iExcel building going up at a nice pace and it appears the Ronald McDonald house on 38th and Jones will be expanded.

For those who have not seen - the iEXCEL center is looking very good and starting to complete it's footprint/shape. There looks to be a big concrete pour happening tomorrow. Still, they need quite the pace to open by fall semester 2018 (their stated goal).

In other news, Great Plains Auto Body is in the city planning notes asking for permission to change zoning for the lot on the SE corner of 42nd and Leavenworth. Makes me wonder how soon til they start moving over there and how soon we will have more concrete information on UNMC's plans for their current location.

The organization held a groundbreaking ceremony Friday for the 22,000-square-foot facility it plans to build along Leavenworth Street between 38th Avenue and 39th Street. The organization purchased the land, three parcels in all, earlier this year from the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Kyle Herber, the organization’s president, said the organization is outgrowing its existing building at 8502 West Center Road. The nonprofit is the federally designated organ procurement organization for Nebraska and Iowa’s Pottawattamie County.

Five years ago the organization had 25 employees, Herber said, but today it has nearly 55. Organ and tissue donation also has increased. Before 2012 the organization worked with an average of 40 organ donors a year, and now that runs between 70 and 80. The number of tissue donors has increased over that same time from about 100 a year to a little more than 200 and counting.
