Posted By: Rick Moriarty
Syracuse, N.Y. — Bank of New York Mellon is closing its downtown Syracuse operations center and transferring employees to a center it operates in nearby DeWitt.
Amanda Changuris, associate director of corporate communications for the bank, said in an email to Syracuse.com | The Post-Standard that the move will take place late in the third quarter of this year.
The move means that the entire third floor and most of the second floor of Dey’s Plaza at 401 S. Salina St. will become vacant in mid-August, said Richard deVito, who, along with developer Robert Doucette, bought Dey’s Plaza in 2009. The bank is the building’s biggest office tenant, occupying 70,000 square feet of space.
It won’t be vacant for long, however. DeVito said he and Doucette plan to build 22 apartments in the third-floor space being vacated by the bank and are negotiating with two potential commercial tenants for the second-floor space the bank is leaving.
