State Farm announced in late December that it had broken ground on its new Texas data center.
The facility is located just south of the company’s new offices in Richardson, a suburb of Dallas. The site offers more than 129,000 square feet of available space on 15 acres of land. The building, which was designed by Corgan Architects in Dallas, will be constructed all in one story. The complex will also offer parking spaces for the more than 130 workers who will be needed to run the Texas data center.
The complex is being built on land previously housing a farm owned by Bob Evans, Co. for visitors and tours up until last year. The former farm property was one of the largest tracts of undeveloped land in the area until State Farm bought it for their new facility.
The Dallas data center is being built by developer KDC, who is also developing the insurance giant’s new 1.5 million-square-foot office in the area. The data center and office building are two of four construction projects planned for State Farm in the Dallas area.
