OMAHA, NE, (October 26, 2018) – Burlington Capital, an award-winning national developer, announced another key step in its ongoing partnerships with the United States’ Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense.
Burlington Capital along with its partner, Johnson Development of Birmingham, AL, were recently notified by the Department of Veterans Affairs that after an extensive competition, they have been chosen to build the new Lincoln, Nebraska, Department of Veterans Affairs community based outpatient clinic.
“Johnson Development will take the lead in building the clinic. Building VA clinics is their specialty”, said George Achola, vice president of Burlington Capital.
The 89,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is expected to provide services to more than 73,000 Veterans and their families on an annual basis. It is anticipated that construction will start during the first quarter of 2019. The future redevelopment of the old clinic will include apartments for veterans and seniors, along with private medical offices.
In discussing the VA’s decision to build the clinic on the Campus, Lisa Roskens, Chairman and CEO of Burlington Capital said, “We are so proud to take another key step in serving our Veterans and are excited to continue building out our vision for the development of the Lincoln campus.”
U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer, who voted to fund the leased clinics and encouraged the VA to move forward with the project, said she worked to advance the redevelopment of the Lincoln VA Clinic “because it’s a vital project for Nebraska veterans.”
Burlington Capital has a successful track record in partnering with the VA and other government agencies. In December 2017, Burlington Capital opened Victory Park Apartments located on the VA campus in Lincoln, NE, providing newly constructed apartments for homeless Veterans. In addition to the accomplishments on the Lincoln campus, Burlington Capital has partnered with the VA in Omaha, NE to provided 90 units of affordable Veteran housing that includes a 10,000 square foot VA clinic. Burlington Capital has also partnered with the Department of the Air Force to provide nearly 2,000 privatized military housing units on Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue, NE.
