After a year of construction, FedEx Office’s new headquarters in Plano is nearing completion. More than 1,200 employees are expected to take occupancy of the 265,000-square-foot campus in August or September.
Ari Spitzer, FedEx office vice president of real estate and development, said the new campus will consolidate the company’s employees, now located in two different local facilities, into one, which will increase efficiency and collaboration. He also mentioned the consolidation will result in cost reductions.
Amenities at the new headquarters include a fitness center, basketball and volleyball courts, private dining room for events or corporate lunches, and a cafeteria. The building will also house a mock store, where Spitzer said the company can test new technologies and processes before putting them into use in the real world, and a learning center, where training of store managers will take place.
FedEx Office’s new corporate home is one of the big-name anchors of the $2 billion Legacy West development at State Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollway. Toyota Motor North America and Liberty Mutual also have campuses under construction at Legacy West.
KDC is developing all three office projects. Key players on the FedEx Office headquarters include HKS Inc. (architect), HOK (interior design), Rogers O’Brien (general contractor), and Kimley Horn (structural engineer). The JLL team of Larry Toon, Kelley Kackley, Stephen Holley, and Torrey Littlejohn provided tenant representation.
