The three-story office building contains approximately 60,000 square feet of space, including 1,500 square feet of street-front retail space for Subway™. The new building is currently occupied by 200 employees, and has space for 400 employees to account for projected new hires, based on Fulton Financial Corporation’s 10-year growth plan.
Fulton announced in 2010 that it had purchased the property with the intent to expand its corporate offices at Penn Square. In 2013, the company paused the construction project to evaluate its needs and current buildings on Penn Square and in East Petersburg to ensure that the company was optimizing its existing facilities. It has since reworked areas of its existing Penn Square headquarters and completed a major remodel of the East Petersburg Operations Center, adding 425 new workspaces between the two locations.
