According to the Detroit Free Press, the deal is expected to close in the second quarter.
The banks will operate under the Huntington name and will have two headquarters for different operations.
Huntington will keep its headquarters in Columbus for the holding company and consumer banking. A Detroit headquarters will be used for the combined company’s commercial banking arm, the Detroit Free Press reports.
60 percent of loan portfolio business will be based in Detroit and 40 percent will be in Columbus.
A new landmark office tower will be in downtown Detroit for at least 800 employees of the combined company, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Huntington now plans to occupy the building and it may have up to 1,100 employees there according to Stephen Steinour, chairman, president and CEO of Huntington Bank.
