FedEx Office and Print Services, the Dallas-based company that runs print shops across the country, is planning to move its corporate headquarters to Plano, city officials confirmed Friday.
The move will consolidate up to 1,224 workers who currently office at the Galleria in Dallas and in a separate office in Plano, city documents say. The company will occupy at least 255,000 square feet of as-of-yet unbuilt office space near the intersection of Legacy Drive and Headquarters Drive on the west side of the city.
That project will be part of the recently-announced master-planned development on 240 vacant acres surrounding the J.C. Penney headquarters. J.C. Penney has partnered with local real estate companies to build a mixed-use project there that will include offices, apartments, retail and a hotel on that land. The development will be similar to nearby Legacy Town Center and FedEx is expected to be one of many tenants.
“It is an amazing opportunity to capture yet another headquarters with a company that has local recognition,” said Sally Bane, director of economic development at Plano. “I know our City Council welcomes the opportunity to add yet another stellar company to the list of many that call Plano home.”
She said the city has been working about three years to attract the company.
Plano will likely chip in more than $1.6 million in cash incentives to lure the company. An incentive package is included on Monday’s City Council agenda.
