Unison, a San Francisco-based homeownership investment firm, celebrated the opening of a second office Wednesday in downtown Omaha.

Ryan Downs, president of Unison, said he looked at about 100 other metro areas, including Dallas and Kansas City. But Omaha ticked every box for what they were looking for in a place to pitch their second location — with plenty of new stuff on the way.

“And then with the announcement of the Mutual Headquarters just a block away and the streetcar development, this building is right on the streetcar line,” said Omaha Chamber Speaker David Brown. .

The ninth floor of the Landmark Building now houses Unison. Downs is no stranger to Omaha, having lived in the area for 20 years.

“Omaha is very affordable, people have a great quality of life, they have a high quality education system, a strong workforce and frankly a really business-friendly environment,” Downs said.

But even with that, Downs knows challenges are ahead with a tight labor market.

“I think the hardest thing for any business in the country right now — it’s not unique to Omaha, it’s just finding the right talent,” Downs said.

Still, Downs is optimistic that Unison’s benefits will attract the right people.

And Brown says that will only add success to a city with a rapidly growing workforce.

“If we make the investment, more investment will happen, more people will come, more businesses will come,” Brown said.

Unison said it has five employees at its Omaha site. But they are looking to increase that number to several hundred more.
