Cerner wrapping up next 2 phases of $4.5B Innovations Campus project 

Kansas City, Mo.-based Cerner is almost finished with building two new office towers that represent phases three and four of its 16-phase, $4.5 billion Innovations Campus project, according to an Aug. 7 Kansas City Business Journal report. 

The EHR giant began construction on the two new buildings in March 2018. The $220 million project will add 775,000 square feet of new office space to the 290-acre campus and will support at least 3,000 employees, according to the report. 

The Innovations Campus is expected to be complete around 2025 and in total will house 16,000 employees in 3.7 million square feet of office space. The campus plan originally included 10 office buildings as well as mix-used space for two data centers, a grocery store and retail space. 

Cerner is actively marketing some of its retail pad sites at the Innovations Campus, and a company spokesperson told the publication the company continues "to assess the pace of construction of additional phases as we navigate through the current Covid-19 pandemic." 

Cerner has more than 13,000 local full-time-equivalent employees. In July, the company told its employees that its offices will not reopen until 2021 due to the pandemic and that staff will continue working remotely until then. In addition to its Innovations Campus, Cerner also has campuses in Kansas City, Kan., and two offices in southeast Kansas City, Mo.
