Cerner's new campus work reaches top of first two towers

March 18, 2016

The first two towers in the $4.45 billion Cerner new campus in Kansas City reached their summits with a topping out ceremony Friday morning. Each of more than a dozen “neighborhood nodes” will feature its own “unique personality” to help the software engineers be innovative and productive, said Mike Nill, chief operating officer at Cerner. These will include a library, a maker space for hands-on tinkering, a gaming area and a think tank.

Proclaimed the largest economic development in Missouri’s history, Cerner’s sprawling campus is a massive 11-year undertaking expected to open its last tower in 2025.

Others who spoke at the event included Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, Kansas City Mayor Sly James, and Dunn’s chairman Steve Dunn.
