New life is coming to the East Hills Mall area, creating hundreds of jobs.

That's along Route 60 in Huntington. Hadco announced Wednesday the center will be renovated into space for professional office suites.

So far, nine businesses are part of the project, including Huntington Federal Savings and Loans. The bank's looking to build a stand-alone bank on the property.

“I say there’ll be 230 jobs that's only one per 1,000 on our square footage-- 150,000 square feet if we had four employees that would be 600. I’ll say between three and 600 employees would be substantial," Bob Childers of Childers Properties said.

The project also includes 530 office spaces. Construction will begin August 1. The project won't be finished until 2010.
