KDC BREAKS GROUND ON INDEPENDENT BANK GROUP'S NEW CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS AT CRAIG RANCH
Construction to begin immediately
MCKINNEY, Texas (January 17, 2018) -- KDC today broke ground on Independent Bank Group’s new corporate headquarters at the McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch. The approximately 165,000 square-foot, six-story headquarters will make a statement in McKinney as the City’s tallest building.
The new headquarters will be situated on a 10.4-acre parcel of land at State Highway 121 and Grand Ranch Parkway at the entrance of the McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch.
“It is exciting to be part of the outstanding team that will deliver a new Class A headquarters for Independent Bank in McKinney,” said KDC president, Toby Grove. “The stunning building will have a distinctive profile from the Sam Rayburn Tollway and overlook the picturesque lake at Craig Ranch.”
The building’s sleek glass exterior and expansive terraces are designed to bring the outside in, complemented by a mature greenbelt. Bank employees enjoy views of the water feature, and have direct access to walking trails that connect a (proposed) mixed-use development. Approximately 400 employees are expected to occupy the new headquarters upon completion.
Independent Bank’s CEO David Brooks was onsite and offered the following comments, “Today marks the next chapter in Independent Bank’s story. Our new corporate campus will position us as a premier employer in North Texas, while providing the infrastructure for growth. We’re grateful for the support of the Craig Ranch, the City of McKinney and the McKinney Economic Development Corporation and proud to deepen our roots as we continue to make a positive impact on the communities we serve through high-performance, purpose-driven banking.”
“Independent Bank is a corporate citizen of the highest regard,” said Mayor George Fuller. “They conduct business the right way, with a focus on what’s best for the community. These are the types of businesses we want to retain for our rapidly growing city.”
KDC will begin construction immediately and pursue LEED Silver certification. SmithGroupJJR is the architect and Rogers-O’Brien Construction Company, LTD is the general contractor.
