The Union Passenger Terminal was designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood of Los Angeles and completed in 1931. The massive exterior walls are of cream-colored glazed terra cotta and display Art Deco detailing. The building typifies the numerous passenger stations Underwood designed as consulting architect to the Union Pacific System. The completion of the terminal and the reconstruction of the connected Burlington Station firmly established Omaha as an important railroad terminus in the Midwest.
