Liberty Mutual workers informed about Plano office plans as deal for big campus moves ahead

0204libertymutualsiteLiberty Mutual Insurance is moving ahead with its plans for a huge new office campus in Plano.

And some employees with the Boston-based insurer have been informed about the company’s plans to move thousands of workers to North Texas.liberty

Liberty Mutual is close to a deal with developers and the City of Plano to construct a 2-building campus in Legacy business park, real estate brokers who are tracking the project say.

The office project on the west side of the Dallas North Tollway would contain more than 900,000 square feet and house 4,000 to 5,000 Liberty Mutual employees.

The Plano city council is tentatively scheduled to consider economic incentives next month for the new employment center.

Developer KDC would build the project. KDC is the same company that’s building the huge State Farm Insurance campus in Richardson and the new Toyota Motors and FedEx office headquarters in Plano.

Some managers in Liberty Mutual’s offices around the U.S. have already been notified of plans to consolidate workers in North Texas and other key locations.

The first of the insurance company’s workers will start transferring to the area in early 2016, according to a Liberty Mutual manager who contacted me and asked not to be identified.

There has been a spike in the number of folks reading stories I wrote back in February about Liberty Mutual’s looking at a campus in North Texas, according to reports from Dallasnews.com

So far the insurance company isn’t talking about its Plano plans.


Liberty Mutual representatives confirm they are consolidating some operations in a handful of locations across the country. But they won’t talk about any future plans for Texas.
