SUGAR LAND - Planned Community Developers has broken ground on a new facility for Texas Instruments Inc. (TI), at the northeast corner of US 59 and University Blvd., which is expected to bring 400 jobs to the area.
The building will be a three-story, 165,000-sf Class A structure on a seven-acre site in the Telfair commercial development area. Construction on the $35 million project is expected to be complete by early 2014.
The facility is being built a little over a year after TI said it would close its manufacturing plant in Stafford.
TI chose to build the new facility in Sugar Land due to factors such as proximity to employees’ homes, local amenities and clarity of site-development plans.
