Toyota teases $300 million Plano headquarters in new video

Though it reveals little, Toyota has released a teaser image of the company’s new corporate headquarters in Plano.
A large rendering of the $300 million facility – which may house up to 5,000 employees – will be unveiled at a press event on Wednesday.
The image shows what apparently is a rectangular-shaped multi-story building front draped in a sheet.
Work on the 100-acre site near Legacy business park has already begun and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
Toyota, the largest automaker in the world, is moving its North American headquarters to Plano, where it will consolidate all of its major divisions – sales, marketing, engineering, finance and corporate services.
Those functions are now spread among offices in California, Kentucky and New York.
The facility near State Highway 121 will be the first automotive headquarters to be located in Texas.
