Capital One Bank Opening New Regional Office in Downtown Dallas

Capital One is locating a new regional office in downtown Dallas.

The Virginia-based financial firm is putting its commercial banking headquarters for the area in the Plaza of the Americas complex on Pearl Street.

About 80 workers will start out in the office, which is designed to grow.

"Most of the people coming down here now work in Far North Dallas near the Galleria," Kent Eastman, Capital One Bank's area president, said Monday. "Capital One Bank is committed to this market and the vibrancy of downtown Dallas.

"We want to be a part of that."

The bank will lease about 24,000 square feet of office space in the project, as well as space for a branch bank in the retail atrium.

Workers will move downtown in early 2009.
