A developer has broken ground on a huge office complex near Atlanta, Georgia that State Farm Insurance will use. The first building will be a 13 story tower on a seven level parking structure with ground floor retail space. State Farm will lease 585,000 square feet of the first building at the complex in Dunwoody, Georgia. The Bloomington-based company will be adding about 2,500 jobs in the Atlanta meto area in the next few years. The new total of employees there will be about 8,000. The office tower will be a LEED Silver Certified energy efficient structure and is slated to open in late 2016. At full build out, developer KDC says there will be 2.2 million square feet of space in a variety of categories in Dunwoody. KDC is also developing the new hub in Dallas for State Farm. The insurance carrier plans to lease two million square feet of four buildings in Dallas. State Farm's third hub will be in Tempe, Arizona.
