Crocker Center will be renamed Wells Fargo Center on Nov. 1 to reflect its new tenant, Wells Fargo Bank, which is moving its Southern California headquarters to the 54-story north tower in downtown Los Angeles.
Wells Fargo already has started relocating about 1,500 staff members from various locations, mostly from its previous building, Wells Fargo Plaza, at 5th and Flower streets. The logo atop that tower also will be changed from Crocker Bank to Wells Fargo.
Maguire Thomas Partners is general partner of the project, which was completed in 1985. After acquiring Crocker Bank in May, 1986, Wells Fargo also became a partner.
The project includes twin, 2.3-million-square-foot office towers on Grand Avenue between 3rd and 4th streets atop Bunker Hill and the 45-story IBM Tower and one-acre garden pavilion at the base. Wells Fargo will occupy 12 floors of the north tower.
