Structural work almost finished for State Farm’s Richardson tower campus
Construction crews are working on the final floor of State Farm Insurance’s huge office campus in Richardson.
After almost a year of construction, work is underway on the 21st floor of the tallest, central building in the complex. Adjoining 13-story and 15-story buildings in the complex at the southwest corner of Plano Road and Bush Turnpike have already been topped out.
The first of almost 8,000 State Farm employees will start moving into the project at the end of this year.
Construction is also planned to start soon on an Aloft Hotel and hundreds of apartments in the surrounding CityLine project.
And a fourth State Farm tower is planned across Plano Road.
Developer KDC is building the 186-acre CityLine project. Austin Commercial is the general contractor on the State Farm buildings.
This morning a formal groundbreaking ceremony will also be held for Raytheon Co.’s new regional office campus at CityLine. The 3-building, almost 500,000-square-oot complex is on the south side of Bush Turnpike
