With the dawning of the New Year, renewal is on its way for the former Bank of America call center campus located in the Lancaster Business Park. To overcome the impact of Bank of America’s recent layoffs, the City of Lancaster has been busily working with key partners to ensure the local buildings previously occupied by the bank’s employees return to full productivity and future job creation.
“In today’s difficult economic climate, it would be impossible for any city to continue growth without two conditions: a very proactive and innovative City Council and staff, and like-minded private sector partners who are willing to work with the City to create win-win situations for everyone involved,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “We have been blessed during the recent challenging times to be able to work with some of the most successful names in California business such as Christopher and Nelson Rising of Rising Realty Partners, as well as CBRE’s Richard Ramirez. These individuals possess the knowledge and skills necessary to help our city create a new opportunity for our region’s economy and job market.”

Given CBRE’s extensive experience and expertise both the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita Valley, the property is expected to draw significant interest from those regions.
