After nearly two years of construction, Monday is moving day to Sunrise for the first wave of American Express employees currently in Plantation, Miramar and Miami.

The modern glass building, on the southeast corner of Northwest 136th Street and Sunrise Boulevard, is a new regional headquarters for the financial services company that will house about 3,000 employees in customer service, travel-related services, marketing, human resources, legal services and other internal operation jobs.

Each weekend through March, 200 to 300 employees will be moved into the 400,000-square foot structure of two glass-sided buildings joined by an atrium. Building the new regional headquarters cost about $200 million, according to American Express.

What workers won't find at their new home: escalators, which were the only method to reach offices in the old, leased building in Plantation.
