Nebraskaland National Bank's new building will consist of three stories above ground and a full basement, President Mike Jacobson said Tuesday at the groundbreaking.

The first floor will have bank tellers and other customer services, with a large common lobby area connecting to nearly 1,800 square feet of restaurant space.

The restaurant tenant is yet to be named, but will likely be a national franchise that offers both coffee and food, Jacobson said.

Gov. Dave Heineman spoke at the official groundbreaking.

"Think about the excitement this new building at the entrance to North Platte will present," Heineman said.

The second floor will house the bank's executive offices and lending departments. The third floor will have a dining room, boardroom plus space for tenants. The top floor will also provide room for future growth.

The basement will have an employee break room, a training room, storage space and the mechanics of the building's utility systems. The building will have geothermal heating and cooling.

Outside, there will be two commercial drive-thru lanes, in addition to drive-thru tube lanes for all customers, as well as two high tech drive-up ATMs that will be capable of imaging customer deposits.

As plans were drawn, emphasis was placed on convenience, with ample parking and easy access, Jacobson said.

Fourteen years ago, Nebraskaland National Bank opened in a small storefront office downtown at 519 N. Dewey.

"You took a chance because you believe in North Platte and Nebraska," Heineman said.

Jacobson started with Kimberly Schroll, who is now the executive vice-president and senior operations Officer.

After completing the initial projections, they reached out to six other individuals to help provide the starting capital of $3 million.

The eight shareholders also served as the first board of directors. Total capital has grown to just over $41 million, Jacobson said. The bank now employs 72 people.
