Fortune 100 company, health insurer Empire BlueCross, a subsidiary of Anthem Inc. (NYSE: ANTM), chose Century Hill Plaza in Latham to move its employees currently in Corporate Woods, Albany NY to the brand new 150,000 square feet office building. The public company is headquartered in Indianapolis and ranks 29th on the list published by Fortune magazine.
“In early 2020, we will be relocating our Albany office to a newer, more modern building located a few miles away,” said Sarah Yeager, a spokeswoman for Anthem. “The new office space will provide a more interactive, collaborative and innovative space for our Albany employees. We look forward to moving to the Century Hill Plaza development in Albany and remaining an integral part of this community.”
Century Hill Plaza is a class A office park just off exit 7 of I-87. First Columbia LLC, which owns Century Hill Plaza, plans to construct two connected buildings there. The buildings would have 150,000 square feet of office space on 7.58 acres.

“[The changes] will enable us to provide improved work environments for our employees and enhance our strong, collaborative culture, as we focus on creating a better health care experience for the communities and customers we serve,” she said.
