Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's official.
Dallas-based Corgan will be Toyota's lead architect for its new North American headquarters campus in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
"After a search that included some of the finest architectural firms in the world, we are thrilled to welcome Corgan as designers of our North American headquarters in
Plano, Texas," said
Doug Beebe, corporate manager of Administrative Services at Toyota. "Corgan is a world-class firm that has designed many beautiful corporate campuses and other projects, both here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and around the world. We are looking forward to seeing the design elements of this campus that Corgan will deliver to provide a collaborative and innovative workspace."
Corgan President and CEO
Bob Morris said, "We are inspired by the challenge to create a facility that will bring Toyota team members and associates from across the U.S. together in one building for the first time. It will be an honor for us at Corgan to help welcome Toyota to north
Texas by creating a home for them where they will immediately feel comfortable and empowered to do their best work."
The firm is already designing the temporary office space Toyota will occupy in
Plano until the permanent campus is built.
Corgan has delivered impressive results working on corporate headquarters for State Farm, Southwest Airlines, Bulova, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Fossil, among others. The international firm has also been recognized for its design leadership of major hospitals, airports, schools, performance venues and a wide range of other project types. In addition, ninety of its projects are LEED registered and 47 are LEED certified.
Toyota recently purchased the land for the new headquarters site and expects to begin occupying the campus in late 2016 or early 2017. Last month, Toyota selected
Dallas-based KDC Real Estate Development & Investments, one of America's leading commercial real estate development and investment firms, as lead developer for the project.
Once completed, the headquarters will be home to about 4,000 Toyota employees.
