Christina Estes reports that Arizona’s tallest building, known as Chase Tower, will soon be vacant.

Chase employees have been moving out of the building for three years (long before the Covid-19 pandemic) to the company's new campus and corporate office in Tempe. That location will eventually have 2,500 employees on site, according to a company official quoted in the article.

As a result of the move, the "iconic sign" on the building will be removed, reports Estes. As for other changes as a result of the vacancy, the public will have to wait to find out. "A spokesperson for the property told KJZZ plans are underway for the high-rise’s future use but declined to publicly share details."

To clear up any potential inaccuracy: "The building’s legal name is actually its address: 201 N. Central Avenue in Phoenix. But after banking giant JP Morgan Chase acquired Bank One in 2004, Chase added its name and logo near the top of the 40-story building."
