AUSTIN - Freescale Semiconductor Ltd. intends to vacate its campus in Northwest Austin this year and relocate the workers there to its Oak Hill headquarters 22 miles away at 6501 W. William Cannon Dr.

The chipmaker, which employs about 5,000 workers in Austin, is believed to employ several hundred people at the campus at 7700 West Parmer Lane, which was built between 1999-2001.

Freescale’s workers at the Parmer campus include a range of engineers, software developers, marketing and sales and other support workers.

The Parmer Lane campus included 950,000 sf of office space, but no chip manufacturing facility. The site’s amenities include a concierge service, game rooms and a parks and recreation area.

The company is renovating its office space in Oak Hill to make it a more open working environment, said spokesman Robert Hatley. The move is expected to be completed by late this year.
