United Technologies will add another 100 jobs in Palm Beach Gardens by 2021, an executive announced at the opening for the company’s $115 million technology showcase off Donald Ross Road.

Gov. Rick Scott spoke at the opening for the 224,000 square-foot Center for Intelligent Buildings as hundreds of employees watched the event from balconies overlooking the lobby.

“To have this happen in this short period of time is remarkable,” Scott said. “These are good, high-paying jobs for a company that’s going to continue to be successful.”

UTC created 380 new jobs in Palm Beach County and kept 70 local jobs. The 100 employees to be hired in the next three years also will work at the building. Employees have been moving into the new offices since March.

“Gov. Scott talks about jobs — a lot. The important thing I can tell you is it’s not just talks. Companies like ours don’t take a decision to relocate our corporate headquarters lightly,” he said.

The creation of additional jobs will have a bigger economic impact than Palm Beach Gardens expected, Mayor Maria Marino said.
