Johnston, RI Citizens Bank officially opened its new corporate campus, bringing together more than 3,000 colleagues in a facility designed to foster greater collaboration while bringing significant benefits to the local community.
The campus, built on a previously undeveloped parcel of land on the west side of I-295, comprises approximately 424,000 s/f of office and meeting space, including a call center, as well as ball fields, tennis and basketball courts, and trails that will be available for colleague and local community use.
“This beautiful, modern campus provides a foundation for greater teamwork, innovation and efficiency in an environmentally sustainable setting,” said Bruce Van Saun, chairman and CEO, Citizens Financial Group.
“Citizens Bank is a Rhode Island success story, with roots in our state for almost 200 years,” said governor Gina Raimondo.
The property was designed to preserve more than 60 acres of trees and wetlands – nearly 50% of the 123-acre site. As part of the project, Citizens remediated a decades-old landfill and integrated wildlife paths for habitat circulation.
