Green Plains Headquarters recognized as “Deal of the Year”

The Commercial Real Estate Summit, a regional conference in it’s 27th year of highlighting housing market trends and other industry topics, has chosen Green Plains’ new headquarters move as “deal of the year,” a distinction recognizing a complex and standout transaction.

T.J. Twit, a broker representing Green Plains, said the deal was notable for readjustments that had to happen quickly. The building was under construction at Aksarben Village with a different tenant plan when Tetrad Property Group was asked to consider a change.

At that point, Green Plains had been looking nearly two years for a new site. When Tetrad gave the OK, Green Plains Chief Executive Todd Becker absorbed much information in short order, said Twit, president of World Group Commercial Real Estate. Architects, engineers, contractors and others switched gears, added parking and square footage.

The CRE Summit will take place on April 8th at Omaha’s CenturyLink Center. The awards for Deal of the Year, Development of the Year and Hall of Fame inductions will be recognized at the conference luncheon. Read More
