Coca-Cola consolidates regional office in West Plano

Coca-Cola is moving about 100 workers into the 10-story Granite Park One building which is being remodeled. 

The list of big name brands landing in West Plano is getting longer.
Along with Toyota, Fedex and Chase, Coca-Cola is heading up the tollway with a major office deal.
Coca-Cola plans to move its regional office from Farmers Branch to the Granite Park development at the southeast corner of the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121.
The international beverage firm has rented almost 27,000 square feet of office space in the Granite Park One building where it will consolidate about 100 workers by the end of the year.
Coca-Cola's new North Texas office is in the same area where mortgage giant Fannie Mae is building its new regional office center in Granite Park.
And it's just east of where construction is underway on Liberty Mutual Insurance's huge office center in Legacy West.
Coca-Cola now has its office at the tollway and Spring Valley Road.
"They looked at pretty much anything up and down the tollway," said Greg Biggs with commercial property firm JLL. "A lot of it had to do with the amenities in Granite Park - that was a real key to their decision."
The 90-acre Granite Park includes five office towers and a Hilton Hotel. Construction is currently underway on a 29,000-square-foot shopping center that fronts on S.H. 121.
The building where Coca-Cola rented was the first tower built at Granite Park in 1999
