Wells Fargo Advisors will be moving into offices at Austin Landing.
“We’re very pleased with the way Austin Landing is developing and growing,” Christopher Snyder, Miami Township’s assistant director of planning and zoning said. “It’s turning into a great gateway for Montgomery County.”
Total employees at Austin Landing by the end of the year will reach about 1,800, Snyder said. About 1,000 of those jobs are office related.
“For Miami Twp. residents, that’s good news,” said Snyder, adding he did not know how many jobs Wells Fargo will bring to the township.
One of the nation’s largest financial services firms,Wells Fargo Advisors has three offices in the greater Dayton area, including locations in Beavercreek, Washington Twp. and Kettering. The company administers about $1.3 trillion in client assets nationwide.
RG Properties — developer of the 142-acre mixed-use Austin Landing development — on Tuesday filed an application with Montgomery County Building Regulations for a “new tenant improvement” permit for office suites at 10100 Innovation Drive for the company.
RG Properties and Wells Fargo had no comments on Tuesday.
In July, RG executed deals with two major companies to locate offices at Austin Landing, including ThyssenKrupp Materials NA and Eubel Brady & Suttman Asset Management. ThyssenKrupp’s Copper and Brass sales division will move about 27 employees to about 6,000 square feet. Eubel Brady & Suttman, a Washington Twp. Investment firm, will move to Austin Landing, with 30 employees taking about 9,000 square feet.
Then in August, Merrill Lynch also revealed plans to consolidate its downtown Dayton, Oakwood and Centerville branches to Austin Landing in 2014.
Snyder acknowledged that several businesses relocating to Austin Landing have consolidated operations. He said he has read reports that Wells Fargo also may have that in mind, but he could not confirm it.
“We have had a number of businesses move from other locations and in the moving they added jobs. They’ve expanded,” Snyder said. “It’s a positive that Montgomery County will be able to keep the jobs.”
