RICHARDSON - State Farm Insurance’s new regional campus in Richardson will allow the Illinois-based company to boost its Dallas-area employment to 8,000 workers. The buildings open in early 2015.

The mammoth commercial real estate development — already under construction at Bush Turnpike and Plano Road — will contain three office towers plus parking garages.

The tallest of the high-rises in the 1.5 million-sf office project will be 21 stories. And there is parking for almost 7,000 cars.

“State Farm will become by far the largest employer in the city of Richardson,” said City Manager Dan Johnson. “This development will change the dynamics of our local and regional economy — it will alter the profile of our skyline.”

Richardson’s current top employer is AT&T, which has about 4,300 workers in the Telecom Corridor.
