Construction has started on another huge office complex in Richardson – this time for Raytheon Corp.
Developer KDC has begun construction on the 3-building office campus on the south side of Bush Turnpike and east of Plano Road.
The almost 500,000-square-foot office complex for Raytheon is part of the huge CityLine development that includes State Farm Insurance’s new campus.
The combined State Farm and Raytheon buildings will total almost two million square feet – about the same as a couple of downtown Dallas skyscrapers.
Raytheon said back in March that it will move 1,700 of its Dallas-area workers to the new office center in Richardson. The buildings will be ready late next year.
Most of the workers will come from Raytheon’s current Garland campus.
Architect HKS designed the project.
The first phase of the CityLine development will also include more than 90,000 square feet of retail, a 150-room hotel, 532 apartments, a 17,000-square-foot wellness and fitness facility and a 41,000-square-foot boutique office building.
A Whole Foods Market grocery store will anchor a shopping center in the development.
Dallas-based KDC is the master developer of the entire 186-acre CityLine project.
