I think someone mentioned earlier that they were that high to be taller than the power lines.

To add to that, on windy days, when the cranes are not in operation, they are pointed in to the wind, I am guessing that might be another reason to make them taller than the power-lines. We don't get a lot of east-west wind around here, but you never know.

4. Parking Garage. I think the length of this is going to be crazy. Look at the stair tower at the far left and the star tower just above the trees on the far right.

Thanks for the update photos, even though I work 3 blocks south, I don't drive by here often and haven't even seen the stairwell rising yet.

I would guess its for a structural stoop. In Nebraska, every building should have a structural stoop so the frost doesn't heave the concrete up in front of the door making the door impossible to open. Houses usually have a front porch, which is the same thing. But commercial and multi family buildings should have a stoop in front of every door.

Great pic update Brad.. You know I get a Birdseye view of this development M-F.. My opinion is the tower cranes make the development "appear" more significant than it will actually become once complete..

But it's still cool to see tower cranes on the drive into work every early weekday morning :;): ...

That is probably the best dorm design yet. Fronts the street well and there will be 10K SF of space for students to use. South campus is desperate for more student support/common space. Should be a big boost.

I think we will see UNL start to grow faster than UNO for the first time in a while, they have been pretty aggressive to raise attendance.

UNO component of AK Village finally densifying. This all has actually happened sooner than I thought it would.

Is UNO building new practice facilities or something?

Gary Sharpe this morning said that the Marlin Briscoe statue will be moved to the new facilities when they are built. Damon Benning jumped in and asked if that was announced yet. Gary said that he thought it was but did not explain.

NARI will be housed here... Nebraska Applied Research Institute.

Nebraska Applied Research Institute Created at UNO

I recently talked with UNO Chief Research Officer Scott Snyder who will serve as president of NARI and NARI’s executive director Beverly Seay, and they said there will be a gradual process of moving First Data out and NARI in, floor by floor, until 2018 when they will have full ownership of the building.

Sounds like a great move to making UNO more research based, I would imagine more grad programs would sprout from this as well.

From just listening to their enthusiasm it really sounds exciting, sort of like a joint University/Business venture into finding solutions to future vocational issues.

out of curiousity, how does UNO's campus rate in size compared to UNL? Half as big? A third as big? I know there is a decent gap in enrollment, I'm just thinking about overall size.

UNO is just over or under half the enrollment if I remember correctly.

Super quick googling says
UNO: 683 acres
UNL: 622 acres

Not sure the date on those measurements.

Just eyeballing it on google maps, UNL seems maybe 25% larger

IF you look at UNL as a combined City and East Campus the 622 is way lower than reality.
For the record  NEBUGEATER does not equal BUGEATER    !!!!!!!

I don't think it's that off. I did the acre calculator on google maps buy roughly boxing in areas and got 700 acres for the 2 UNL campuses combined.

All lanes of 67th Street between Pacific Street and Mammel Hall (Lot 5) will be closed all day from 6 a.m. on Saturday, March 18, to 5 p.m. on Friday, March 24, to accommodate the deconstruction and haul away of the tower cranes used for the UNO Pacific Street Garage project.
