KDC BEGINS CONSTRUCTION ON WELLS FARGO’S NEW OFFICE CAMPUS IN LAS COLINAS
04/18/23 | Press Release
LAS COLINAS, Texas – (April 18, 2023) – KDC and Wells Fargo today celebrated the start of construction for the new future workplace for Wells Fargo at 401 W. Las Colinas Blvd. in Irving.
The 850,000-square-foot project, on 22 acres, is located on the northeast corner of West Las Colinas Boulevard and Promenade Parkway, one block south of West Northwest Highway.
The new state-of-the-art facility will allow Wells Fargo to consolidate multiple offices across the Metroplex to the Las Colinas site by the end of 2025, when the campus is expected to officially open.
“Las Colinas is the ideal location for the new Wells Fargo office campus,” said Steve Van Amburgh, KDC CEO. “It is designed with employees as the priority, including easy access to public transportation through Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail train. Area amenities such as the Toyota Music Factory, the Irving Convention Center, and multiple restaurants and retail selections are just minutes away.”
The campus will be Wells Fargo’s first net-positive energy campus, meaning it is expected to generate more energy than it consumes with rooftop solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations, and native plantings to minimize watering requirements. The campus is targeted for LEED Platinum environmental certification.
Enhanced employee wellness and access to outdoor activities were also top priorities throughout the planning process. The new campus will include well-being rooms and gyms with remotely led classes, as well as nearby walking and bicycle trails, stand-up paddle board rentals, a cycling studio, and four golf courses.
“Wells Fargo is proud of our long-term presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth region, and this new, state-of-the-art facility reaffirms our commitment to this market,” said CEO Charlie Scharf. “We know the value of having our employees working alongside each other, and we’re excited to give them a collaborative environment that prioritizes wellness and sustainability.”
The interior design boasts full-scale amenities including barista-style coffee, a world-class food hall with open view cooking stations, and a dining hall overlooking Lake Carolyn. There will also be a library with a high-tech workshop space and a tech express lounge on-site.
“The Wells Fargo project is an exceptional example of what city government and businesses can realize when they work together on mutually beneficial developments,” said Mayor Rick Stopfer. “This beautifully conceived mixed-use space has already become a magnet for additional offices, retail, dining, housing, recreation, and entertainment. The Wells Fargo project perfectly reflects the quality development projects Irving is attracting that create good jobs and sustainable growth for our city,”
“The campus is designed to be timeless, sustainable and organic,” Van Amburgh added. “The sustainability plan includes grey water collection and high use of regional construction materials. The interior workspace floor plans are open to allow for more natural daylight as well as outside air units to improve HVAC efficiency, and Electrochromic glazing (dynamic glass) which is an intelligent daylight management system.”
Partners on the project include Corgan (CS/TI Architect and Design); Kimley Horn (Landscape, Civil); and Austin Commercial (GC for CS/Site/TI).
