After the Macquarie Group announced in July that it would be establishing its Southeastern U.S. office in Jacksonville, the big unanswered question was exactly where it would be.

The Australian financial firm answered the question Monday. It's Jacksonville operation will be housed in the Riverplace Tower building on the Southbank of the St. Johns River. The company will lease 17,500 square feet on the 5th floor of the tower.

Macquarie is also ramping up its hiring. It’s looking to fill 85 accounting, finance and tax positions, with expectations that close to 150 people will be hired in the next year.

The jobs will pay an average of $64,000.
