Jacksonville-based VyStar bought the 23-story SunTrust Tower a year ago and intends to move its headquarters operations there.
VyStar Credit Union’s name is now up on its Downtown tower at 76 S. Laura St.
Workers began putting the signs up Thursday, completing the east side of the building over the weekend, said Judy Walz, chief marketing and planning officer for VyStar. She said the west side should be completed this week.
Jacksonville-based VyStar Credit Union bought the 23-story SunTrust Tower a year ago for $59 million and the adjacent former Life of the South Building at 100 W. Bay St. in February for $5 million. The company intends to move its headquarters operations and up to 1,000 people Downtown. Some already are in the tower.
In April, the city issued two permits for Brown Enterprises to put up the VyStar name and logo on the east and west elevations of the top of the building at a total cost of $377,026. Additional signs for revolving doors and on the parking garage entrance cost $33,258, bringing the total to $410,284.
The SunTrust lease expires at the end of July and it is moving into the Bank of America Tower.
VyStar will move its headquarters functions from Blanding Boulevard in Southwest Jacksonville.
