A few months ago, Toyota surprised us all by announcing it was moving its North American headquarters from California to Plano, Texas. Now, we learn that sustainable design firm Corgan will be in charge of designing Toyota’s new headquarters.
“After a search that included some of the finest architectural firms in the world, we are thrilled to welcome Corgan as designers of our North American headquarters in Plano, Texas,” said Doug Beebe, corporate manager of Administrative Services at Toyota, in a statement. “Corgan is a world-class firm that has designed many beautiful corporate campuses and other projects, both here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and around the world. We are looking forward to seeing the design elements of this campus that Corgan will deliver to provide a collaborative and innovative workspace.”
Corgan has designed corporate facilities for many leading corporations, including Southwest Airlines, Bulova, and State Farm, among others. Many of their projects either are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) registered or LEED certified.
Here at Empire Toyota, we are excited by Toyota’s move and can’t wait to see what kinds of exciting new products come from this big change.
