Anthem To Leave Monument Circle Offices, Move Employees To Virginia Avenue Building
INDIANAPOLIS – Anthem has announced Tuesday that it is moving out of its corporate headquarters location on Monument Circle and relocating into its other downtown office building near Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
In an e-mail statement to WIBC news, an Anthem spokesperson says the following:
“Our lease on our Monument Circle Building will expire at the end of the year and we have made the decision not to renew the lease. Associates at our Monument Circle Building will move to our Ben Lytle Center location.”
Anthem has more than 300 employees currently working at its corporate office headquarters at 120 Monument Circle, including the company’s CEO and President Gail Boudreaux.
Those employees will be relocated to the Lytle Center, which is at 220 Virginia Avenue near East and South streets in downtown Indianapolis.
The company did not give any more specific information such as a timetable for the move or if any jobs would be affected.
Anthem first moved to the northwest quadrant of Monument Circle in the early 1990’s. Previously at that location was the Hotel English, which was built in 1880 and torn down in 1948. It was replaced with the existing building which was originally a J.C. Penney’s department store which opened in 1950.
Anthem is the second largest health insurer in the United States and one of the largest public companies based in Indiana.
