Third Ward Welcomes Fifth Third to Uptown

"Fifth Third Bank announced that it is moving its North Carolina headquarters to 201 North Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte in June of this year. After the move, the building will be named the 'Fifth Third Center'.
Fifth Third will move 250 employees to the Uptown location and initially occupy over 71,000 square feet. Fifth Third has an option to take more space in the building as the bank continues to grow.
'The state of North Carolina, particularly the Charlotte and Raleigh metro areas, represents one of the most attractive growth areas in the country. We plan to aggressively invest in the resources necessary to significantly expand our North Carolina market share', said Bob James, President and CEO of Fifth Third Bank’s North Carolina Affiliate."
