State Farm Insurance’s  new Richardson office campus project is part of a larger, nationwide consolidation of the company’s business facilities.
The company is building another campus in the Phoenix area.
And in Atlanta, State Farm is leasing a new 585,000-square-foot office building with plans for two more.
The Atlanta project is being built by Dallas-based KDC – the same developer that’s doing State Farm’s big Richardson campus.
KDC said it plans to break ground this summer on the building in the Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody. The building will be located adjacent to a mass transit station, just like the project in Richardson.
“We are excited to be considering an expansion in the Dunwoody community as we position State Farm to better serve communities across the U.S.,” State Farm senior vice president Mary Crego said in a statement.
KDC’s transit oriented development that will include the State Farm building will have 2.2 million square feet of office space, 100,000 square feet of retail and a 200-room hotel.
