Work is underway on a new regional office for one of Tucson’s largest employers. A $26.5 million building permit has been issued for a 200,000-square-foot office building to house Geico, which has been in Tucson since 2003 and employs more than 2,000 workers. Local developer, The Bourn Companies, is building the project on 20 acres at The Bridges, near 3 6th Street and Kino Parkway. The Bridges is comprised of the retail center, Tucson Marketplace and the University of Arizona Tech Parle Bourn further plans to develop more office space, multifamily units and a community park on an additional 95 acres there in the future. Geico will be the first corporate employer in the development and will consolidate its employees in the new office and add about 700 positions over the next few years. The new regional office is expected to be completed by mid-2019, at the earliest.
