State Farm Insurance’s new regional campus in Richardson will allow the Illinois-based company to boost its Dallas-area employment to 8,000 workers. The buildings open in early 2015.
The mammoth commercial real estate development — already under construction at Bush Turnpike and Plano Road — will contain three office towers plus parking garages. The tallest of the high-rises in the 1.5 million-square-foot office project will be 21 stories. And there is parking for almost 7,000 cars.
The insurance company development tops all other such corporate projects in North Texas. It’s the largest project that has been built in Dallas-Fort Worth ever as it relates to a corporate facility. The mission given by the team at State Farm was to create a really great workplace. With an estimated price tag of more than a half-billion dollars, the project will be a world-class facility.
The 1.5mil sq. ft. Class A office complex with a 2mil sq. ft. parking structure is comprised of three separate buildings. The project MEP system consist of a CUP housing 5,200 tons of chillers with a primary-secondary chilled water system. A 20MW 15kv medium voltage service and (4) 2.5MW generators. The towers MEP systems will have (34) air-handling units, and (1,000) plumbing fixtures along with a 15kv distribution system serving (24) substations.
