TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Insurance giant USAA will add as many as 1,215 new jobs in Hillsborough County by 2019, one of the area's biggest jobs announcements in years.
The announcement was made Tuesday.
The Tampa Tribune reports that to accommodate its expansion, USAA initially will lease 50,000 square feet inside the Lakeview Center office in east Tampa. It will later build a 420,000-square-foot building at the Crosstown Center in Brandon by 2015.
Rick Homans, chief executive officer of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp., says the USAA expansion will have a huge economic impact on the area.
