The news of new Toyota headquarters in Texas continues to have updates. Most recently, this comes in the form of unveiling the architectural renderings. With the new renderings released at the end of June, we better understand the exterior design and site layout of this campus, which will be environmentally sensitive.
The new headquarters have a design created by Corgan Associates and give some insight into key components of the new buildings, all of which follow the “One Toyota” philosophy, which is known for environmental sustainability. The plans showed that the office buildings and parking structures are capable of supporting solar panels, allowing for renewable energy onsite. There are also water features to catch and store water needed for irrigation and low-water plantings as well as regional materials that rely on the native landscape in North Central Texas.
The basic design includes seven buildings, each of which is no more than 5 stories tall, surrounding a central plaza with conferencing, fitness, and dining facilities.
In honor of the architectural unveiling of the new Headquarters in Plano, Toyota also began the Ever-Better Expedition, which involves a convoy of the best-known Toyota models driving across the continent by team members, including engineers. They will drive across some of the most inspiring and challenging areas, such as icy Alaska roads and California’s Death Valley. This Expedition will give the Toyota team the chance to truly experience the vehicles they work so hard to create and hopefully provide inspiration for future models.
While you are waiting for the new Texas headquarters to open, head to Toyota of Killeen in Killeen, TX and take a look at the wide selection of vehicles available.
