JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - Citizens Bank has officially opened its new corporate campus in Johnston, Rhode Island.

The bank held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 123-acre campus Tuesday.

Citizens Bank says about 3,000 employees from Cranston and Smithfield facilities will move to the Johnston campus.

The campus includes a wellness center, a 24-hour gym and a human-sized security robot.

Citizens Bank removed a 4-acre landfill and improved a sewer line as part of the project.

Mayor Joseph Polisena says the town agreed to a 20-year property tax stabilization worth $250,000 annually. He says Johnston received $2 million in permit fees for the project.

Polisena says, “this place will put Johnston on the map.”
