Anthem Inc. (NYSE: ANTM) says it will invest $20 million into converting its largest downtown Indianapolis facility — located on the south side of the city — into its new corporate headquarters. The city says the move will keep the state’s largest publicly-traded company in the city where it was founded nearly 75 years ago. The space will be home to more than 2,600 on-site workers and support over 2,300 additional workers throughout the state.
Chief Executive Officer Gail Boudreaux says "our employees live and work here and we are part of the community. We appreciate the support from the City of Indianapolis and the State of Indiana as we worked through the process to finalize our plans. We are excited that our new headquarters will be a state-of-the art building that reflects our proud history and creates a dynamic work environment that will support our goal of leading our industry through continued growth, innovation, and, most importantly, providing a healthier future for all Americans."
Anthem’s headquarters is currently located on Monument Circle in the center of downtown Indianapolis. Early this year, the company said it would not renew its lease on the high-profile site, and instead, relocate to the company’s larger downtown site. The insurer says the new space will include dedicated collaboration areas, employee lounges, an on-site fitness facility and an on-site cafeteria.
