LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Humana Inc. will move nearly 1,200 workers from a former call center building off Blankenbaker Parkway in the east Louisville suburbs to two of the company's downtown buildings next summer.

The company has occupied the suburban space at 12501 Lakefront Place for nearly five years, but almost all of its Louisville headquarters workforce is based downtown.

"The move is being made as Humana’s Blankenbaker sub-lease expires and is part of the company’s routine review of all its properties," said Humana spokeswoman Kate Marx.

A majority of the suburban workers will move to the Waterside and Clocktower buildings where Humana has 550,000 square feet and 125,000 square feet, respectively, she said in an email. The employees were told of the move today.

Humana is investing "millions of dollars in upgrades" at the two downtown buildings to make room for the additional workers, she said. It is not expanding its footprint in those buildings, she said.

"We have open space in Waterside and Clocktower for the Blankenbaker associates...Even after the Blankenbaker associates are relocated, Clocktower and Waterside will still have capacity," she said.

She said the largest work groups housed in the Blankenbaker office are "Provider Network, Agent Support (part of our Retail team), and part of our Pharmacy team."
