New UP Headquarters Opens in Omaha

With a move just across the street from its old home, Union Pacific ushered in a new era when it opened Union Pacific Center, its Omaha headquarters. More than 4,000 employees, who previously were spread out in seven locations and in St. Louis, now were working in a central location. The modern, 1.3-million-square-foot, 19-story glass-and-steel structure includes a dining facility, fitness center, health clinic and a host of other amenities. Union Pacific Center is the largest single-corporation office building in Nebraska.

A year before Union Pacific settled into its new building, another UP institution relocated. On May 10, 2003 — the 134th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad — the Union Pacific Railroad Museum opened its doors in the former Council Bluffs Carnegie Free Public Library. The museum is a joint partnership between the City of Council Bluffs, the Friends of the Carnegie Cultural Museum and Union Pacific.

In 2012, Union Pacific celebrates the shared stories that have shaped our country since 1862. To mark our 150th anniversary, we invite you to explore how the nation’s largest railroad came to be and how UP continues to build America with innovation and tenacity, touching the lives of nearly every citizen.
