Developer KDC, the firm building the huge State Farm Insurance complex in Richardson, has broken ground on a second project in the same area.
KDC is developing the 260,000-square-foot office and warehouse project for AdvoCare International, a Plano-based health and wellness company. The 35-acre development at 2800 Telecom Parkway will include a 235,000-square-foot warehouse and two-story, 25,000-square-foot office building. More than 100 AdvoCare workers will be employed in the complex when it opens in July. AdvoCare said it will keep 150 employees at its existing corporate headquarters at 2801 Summit Ave. in Plano.
“This new facility will accommodate our significant growth in recent years and allow us to serve our distributors more efficiently,” Reid Ward, chief operating officer for AdvoCare International, said in a statement. Azimuth Architecture designed the new buildings, and McFadden & Miller is the general contractor. Kacy Jones of CBRE Group negotiated the transaction. AdvoCare produces and markets nutrition and dietary supplements. The direct sales company has been in business for 20 years.
KDC has developed commercial property projects in Richardson for Nortel, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas and Fossil Inc. “The AdvoCare facility is another example of the city’s ability to fast-track projects in the most economical way possible,” said Toby Grove, KDC president.
