Even as the first wave of Nationwide Insurance employees begins to move into the hub building for the company’s campus at Grandview Yard, planning is underway for an additional office building across Yard Street.
A few hundred employees began setting up their offices May 23 at the building at 1000 Yard St., and construction is continuing on another building next door. A total of about 3,000 employees are expected to occupy the two buildings.
A third building also is expected to rise across the street and may bring the total number of employees to about 4,000, said Brian Ellis, president and chief operating officer of Nationwide Realty Investors, during a tour May 26 of the 1000 Yard St. building.
NRI, the developer of Grandview Yard, is an affiliate of Nationwide Insurance.
The square footage of the third building is still to be determined, Ellis said.
