JP Morgan Chase – Thousands Of Employees To Move Locations

JP Morgan Chase – Thousands Of Employees To Move Locations

In about a month, thousands of JP Morgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) employees will begin to move into the financial giant’s new regional campus in Plano’s Legacy West — a hub powered in part by wind energy.

The move into the 1 million-square-foot campus within Legacy West will be the first of a multi-phased consolidation bringing about half of the financial giant’s North Texas workforce under one roof in phases beginning in September and rolling through 2018 to 2019.

This will be the biggest employment site in North Texas for JP Morgan Chase, with about 6,000 employees expected to work within the Legacy West location upon its completion. The financial firm employs about 12,000 throughout the region.

To power the Plano campus, as well as other real estate ventures, JP Morgan Chase’s global real estate and commodities division has executed a 20-year power purchase agreement with a subsidiary of NRG Energy Inc. to support a 100-megawatt wind farm in Erath County, Texas.

Throughout JP Morgan Chase’s global real estate portfolio spanning 60 countries with about 75 million square feet of real estate, Owen said the company will save tens of millions of dollars by focusing on renewable energy sources.

The company is also evaluating the use of solar panels at one of its Texas facilities, Owen said.

“This really is a triple win for us; it’s good for the environment, the bottom line and our customers and employees,” he added.
