Rogers said the change in location come at no additional cost to taxpayers.
The Highmark West Virginia insurance company previously occupied the senator's new office space. Highmark still has offices in the building but has reconfigured the layout of its work areas and does not need as much space, Burnside said.
Highmark's empty space currently is the only unoccupied office in the building.
In addition to Highmark, City Center West also is home to the state Alcohol Beverage Control Administration, the West Virginia Lottery Commission, the state Racing Commission, Highmark, the West Virginia Real Estate Division, the West Virginia Division of Financial Institutions and the West Virginia Municipal Bond Commission.
"We're sister agencies; we're all housed under revenue. We share meeting space, which makes it really nice to have," Burnside said. "There's just a lot more functionality in this building than where we were before."
The Lottery Commission previously was at a former Steak and Ale location across the Kanawha River from downtown Charleston.
The state bought the 13-story office tower for $21.65 million in 2010, and then spent about $15.5 million on renovations. The building was only about 40 percent occupied before the state purchased it.
