OneMain Financial will move its longtime downtown headquarters to the Legg Mason Tower this spring, becoming the latest in a string of companies that have shifted from the central business district to Harbor East.

The consumer lending arm of CitiGroupInc., OneMain has signed a 110,000-square-foot lease at the building.
