This could full some more seats out of CLE.
Could Quicken come here?

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is dangling the prospect of Cleveland as a potential site for a new national headquarters for his 3,500-employee Quicken Loans.
In announcing the April 3 opening of a mortgage office with 300 to 350 new $85,000-a-year jobs in Tower City Center, Gilbert on Thursday also said he wants to build a new national headquarters to replace his spread-out operations in Livonia, Mich., a Detroit suburb. The office leases there end in 2009. While that might seem a long time off, if the company is going to build, it needs to get started in the next year or so.

Quoting GoCOgo (Reply 1): Which is it? That's quite a difference.
Anyway, great news for the local economy, but one new company I don't think will make that huge of difference to CO.
300 to 350 jobs at a new operations center were already announced and they are researching a move of their headquarters - and additional 3,500 jobs -to Cleveland. This would be huge for the city, but I think it is still a long shot.
Should it happen, I think the only benefit to CO would be a new corporate contract.

With the Defense Finance and Accounting Service scheduled to add 600 FTEs to Cleveland, that should help. DFAS plans on operating payroll processing centers in CLE and IND, so you could see quite a few trips on that route.
