Dallas-based Corgan will serve as lead architect for Toyota’s new North American headquarters campus in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
“We are inspired by the challenge to create a facility that will bring Toyota team members and associates from across the U.S. together in one building for the first time,” said Corgan President and CEO Bob Morris. “It will be an honor for us at Corgan to help welcome Toyota to north Texas by creating a home for them where they will immediately feel comfortable and empowered to do their best work.”
The firm is already designing the temporary office space Toyota will occupy in Plano until the permanent campus is built.
Corgan has previously designed corporate headquarters for State Farm, Southwest Airlines, Bulova, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Fossil, among others. The international firm has also been recognized for its design leadership of major hospitals, airports, schools, performance venues, and a wide range of other project types.
Toyota recently purchased the land for the new headquarters site and expects to begin occupying the campus in late 2016 or early 2017. Once completed, the headquarters will be home to about 4,000 Toyota employees.
