After months of waiting, Salesforce signage is going up on the state’s tallest building.
On Thursday afternoon, the signature signage on the skyscraper's south side was nearly complete, with the north side still waiting for its letters. The San Francisco-based tech giant’s moniker is replacing the Chase logo that adorned the building for years following its acquisition of Bank One.
Salesforce unveiled the design in February.
Salesforce.com Inc. is establishing its regional headquarters in the tower and will occupy 11 floors. The company last spring announced it would add 800 workers by 2021, boosting its downtown employment to 2,200.
Salesforce is taking 247,000 square feet, or 27 percent of the building, on floors nine through 13 and 20 through 25. That will push occupancy in the tower to about 88 percent. As part of the deal, the name of the building has been changed from Chase Tower to Salesforce Tower.
The skyscraper, developed by Columbus, Ohio-based Galbreath Co., opened in 1990. It originally was known as the Bank One Tower, but took the Chase name after the New York-based financial giant acquired Chicago-based Bank One Corp. in 2004.
