Excellent news. Love that this is downtown. Is this the location of the old Duke Energy offices?

Yeah, it's in that cool looking building with the dome on top home to First Citizens Bank now at the intersection of West McBee Aveue and Academy Street.

(Trying to picture the building in question).... But, great news. Maybe there's hope if I ever lose my current job. I could always go back to my call center background...

It is the large, Colonial style building on West Washinton Street, next to the Academy Street (U.S. 123) bridge. Originally housed Duke Power offices, currently First Citizens Bank offices.

Thanks.

It'll be nice to see this addition to the downtown workforce.

$6 million in taxpayer dollars well spent.

You'd think that with the state going $6 million more in debt to bring this call center here, they could have found a cheaper place to rent. Are any of the other local call centers downtown? I know there's a big one in a nondescript office building in Spartanburg, but that makes sense. People who call you on the phone don't care if you are in a pretty building downtown.

Isn't this a waste of taxpayers dollars? Why should a call center be in prime real estate? It's a call center.
