Independent Bank Celebrates Topping-Off of New Headquarters in McKinney Texas
Independent Bank Group is about to celebrate the topping-off of its new 165,000-square-foot corporate headquarters in McKinney, Texas. The building is located on a 10.4-acre site within the McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch and is slated for completion in February of 2019. The Class A office building will be a standout amid the rapidly growing Sam Rayburn Toll Road corridor of McKinney.
“The design of our new headquarters building embodies the culture of Independent Bank, our purpose-driven approach, and continued commitment to community.” said David R. Brooks, CEO, Independent Bank. Once complete, approximately 400 employees are expected to occupy the new headquarters.
The new headquarters will be enclosed with View Dynamic Glass, providing occupants with unobstructed views and access to optimized natural daylight –with no blinds required. The availability of abundant natural light will empower bank employees to be more productive and create a healthier environment. Studies have shown employees in buildings with View Dynamic Glass report less (51%) incidences of eyestrain, a 63 percent drop in headaches and a 56 percent reduction in drowsiness, all of which can adversely impact productivity.
The core team on this project are developer KDC, commercial real estate firm Avison Young, design firm SmithGroupJJR and general contractor Rogers-O’Brien. According to SmithGroupJJR’s lead designer, Tom Philippi, “The design for the new headquarters strives to make a deep connection with the community, its stakeholders, employees and surroundings.
