PLANO - Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance plans to have 5,000 employees working on a new campus by the end of 2017.

The nation’s third largest insurer told employees that it will build the new North Texas campus in the Legacy West development on the Dallas North Tollway in West Plano.

“It’s all part of our strategy to attract and obtain top talent,” Liberty Mutual vice president John Cusolito said Tuesday. “We already have a strong and significant presence in Texas and are impressed with the workforce in the state.”

While Liberty Mutual’s headquarters will stay in Boston, the new Plano campus will consolidate a variety of operations now located around the country, according to Vice President John Cusolito.

The two-tower, 900,000-sf campus is being designed by Dallas-based architect Omniplan.

Liberty Mutual will begin moving workers to North Texas in January 2016.

The big insurer has rented a temporary office space at 3905 North Dallas Pkwy. near Windhaven Pkwy. in Plano. Several hundred people working in a call center in that building will be located to the new Legacy West campus when it opens in 2017.
