I wonder if more of the financial services firms will move, a lot of younger people like living downtown, and it would probably make financial sense just on the basis of recruitment alone. Part of the reason I left Kansas City was all of my job offers were in the suburbs
SwissRe moved downtown a few years back and have loved their new location. Wadell and Reed will likely be the next to move downtown.
JP. Morgan's old Retirement Plan Services Division has a Sprint Campus lease-up either in 2021/2022. When JPM moved to OP in 2011, they signed a 10-year lease for a new 800-employee, 175,000-square-foot headquarters location
(KC Business Journal. 2009). That group now has closer to 900-1000 local employees and continues to grow. The name "Project Decoy" continues to make me believe it's not about W&R.
U.S. Bank Employees maintains a large presence in Overland Park. A total of 1,300 U.S. Bank employees work at the 185,000-square-foot service center building in Overland Park. Their STL service center is in a tower their CBD so it appears that these types of jobs could come downtown at some point.
Alliance Data Sytems is a financial services company that I know very little about. However, they employ about 925 people on the Kansas Side.
