The Internal Revenue Service has started consolidating more than 655 employees into its new office downtown.

An open house has been scheduled Thursday for the new 10-story, 200,000-square-foot Internal Revenue Service Office Building at 55 N. Robinson Ave. with a dedication ceremony planned at 4:30 p.m.

It is the largest downtown office construction project since Leadership Square was completed with 713,699 square feet at 211 N. Robinson Ave. in 1984.

The IRS is expected to occupy about 160,000 square feet in the new building, and the rest is public space. Some of the public space has been reserved for a snack bar that is to be operated by the League for the Blind.

In its five locations the agency occupied a total of about 150,000 square feet.

There are about 350 employees at Lakepointe Towers, 4005 and 4013 Northwest Expressway; 225 employees at IRS' Oklahoma City headquarters in the United States Federal Courthouse building, 200 NW 4th St.; 70 employees at the 500 W. …
