SOUTH BEND — Plans for the downtown’s first new high-end office building in nearly three decades now include a major tenant.

The law firm Barnes & Thornburg LLC will occupy the middle three floors of a five-story modern glass and steel structure to be built at the southwest corner of Main Street and Jefferson Boulevard, and it will be called “The Barnes & Thornburg Building,” the firm announced.

The firm will remain in its 1st Source Bank Center space until the new building is finished, expected in the summer of 2021. A groundbreaking ceremony is set for Tuesday. 

The business law firm resulted from a 1982 merger between Indianapolis-based Barnes, Hickam, Pantzer & Boyd, and South Bend-based Thornburg, McGill, Deahl, Harman, Carey & Murray. It has since grown to operate offices in 14 cities, from Atlanta and Chicago to San Diego and Washington, D.C.
