Centris Credit Union broke ground Wednesday for their new Omaha headquarters. They are one of several new developments in the Sterling Ridge area near 132nd and Pacific

Centris President and CEO Steve Swanstrom said, “The Sterling Ridge development was attractive because of its central location to the interstate as well as to Dodge Street and just the diversity of the development as well.”

The Tri Faith Initiative offers that diversity to the area. And across the street, a senior living space under constriction means continued growth in the area.

Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said, “Every time we break ground on a new project we celebrate growth and we celebrate success.”

The mayor helped break ground at the job site. She said her job is to ensure job and economic growth in Omaha. She pointed to the new Centris headquarters as fulfilling that role, “and we see extraordinary growth right now in private development and in public improvement all over the city. North to south. East to west.”

Centris Board Chair Joe Sacco said he agrees. Centris is part of Omaha’s growth and while they are capable of expanding out of Nebraska, they feel they can do more good by staying local.

“We're there with locations to serve our members and our members are out in the community doing good work and showing that Centris is more than business,” Sacco said. “It's giving back.”

One more step in keeping a growing company local as they close in on 85 years of supporting the city.

Swanstrom said, “This is home. We love Omaha. We love the residents and we love the people of Omaha.”

The new Centris headquarters is scheduled to be complete in 2021.
