With its lease on its Cranston facility expiring in 2018, Citizens Financial Group Inc. is considering building a new campus somewhere in Rhode Island for approximately 4,000 employees.
The facility, if built, would encompass one or two buildings and be between 480,000 and 500,000 square feet. Employees who work at the Cranston facility, along with locations in Smithfield and Warwick, would be moved to the new site.
The company’s downtown Providence headquarters would remain.
If Citizens wants to attract and retain workers, they’d be smart to locate in Downtown Providence, today’s workers want to be downtown.
