This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
Keurig Dr Pepper is moving its Texas headquarters from Plano to Frisco, into a 350K SF build-to-suit office building in the mixed-use The Star campus, which includes the world HQ of the Dallas Cowboys football team.
The new location will be ready in 2021 and serve as one of the company's two headquarters, with the other in Burlington, Massachusetts.
The deal followed a vote by the Frisco Economic Development Corp. board of directors approving an incentive package for the move, tied to certain performance criteria. About 1,100 employees work in the company's current location in Plano, which it has occupied since 1998.
"This move will drive job growth opportunities, as well as create interest from other corporations across the nation seeking to expand and relocate their operations," Frisco Economic Development Corp. President Ron Patterson said in a statement.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' company, Blue Star Land, is developing the building, partnering with Lincoln Property Co. and architectural firm HKS for the design of the building.
Keurig Dr Pepper partnered with CBRE to secure the new location and has engaged architectural design firm Corgan for interior design on the project.
The Star is the 91-acre campus with the Cowboys HQ, a 12,000-seat stadium, a 60K SF gym, a country club, a hotel, a sports medicine research facility and various retail options. It is developed in partnership with the city of Frisco and Frisco Independent School District.
