Cerner’s office imprint continues to grow in the region, this time at its North Kansas City headquarters campus.
The health care information technology company will present plans Tuesday to expand in North Kansas City with a four-story, 125,000-square-foot building that it’s calling a “Demonstration Center,” which is meant for existing and potential clients.
Cerner is still evaluating how many employees will work in the new building, which the company expects to start building later this year and open in 2018.
The estimated investment for the project is $35 million. Cerner is requesting a Chapter 100 property tax abatement from the city. Under Chapter 100, Cerner can request sales tax exemptions on construction-related materials, but the company is not asking for those benefits.
