Wells Fargo To Build a 22-Acre Corporate Campus in Irving, Creating 650 New Jobs

Governor Greg Abbott confirmed today that San Francisco-based Wells Fargo will build a new corporate campus in Irving's Las Colinas development. Based around two 400,000-square-foot towers, the campus will provide a home for Wells Fargo's 3,000 local employees, while creating 650 jobs. Dallas firm KDC has been tapped as developer.

The move is being aided by a $5 million "deal-closing" grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund, on top of $30 million in incentives approved by the Irving City Council in August.
