PLANO - The City of Plano has approved an incentive deal based on Toyota developing a 1 million-sf campus at the northwest corner of Legacy Dr. and Headquarters Dr. The deal stipulates 2,900 employees must move into Toyota's new corporate campus by 2017.

The package includes a ten-year, 50 percent tax abatement on the $350 million of real and business personal property. Plano has also awarded a $6.75 million cash grant to Toyota.

By developing a new corporate campus, Toyota plans to add $300 million in real property improvements and $50 million of business personal property to West Plano.

Toyota's relocation is expected to have a $7.2 billion economic impact over the next decade in the region, according to Plano Mayor Harold LaRosiliere.

Along with the Toyota incentives, Plano is including a creation of a 100-acre reinvestment zone surrounding the Toyota corporate campus, which is expected to draw a number of Toyota suppliers and other corporate companies.

Plano's economic deal is in addition to the $40 million the company has already been awarded through the Texas Enterprise Fund, which is part of Governor Rick Perry's efforts to recruit and bolster business in the Lone Star State.
