Wells Fargo Reaches Midpoint Milestone for Its Nearly $500M Las Colinas Campus

Wells Fargo's new campus in Irving's Las Colinas was "topped out" recently on its way to a planned end-of-2025 opening. Here's what KDC CEO Steve Van Amburgh has to say about the project's "timeless, organic, and sustainable design."

Wells Fargo and Dallas developer KDC have “topped out” construction of Wells Fargo’s two-tower, 22-acre new campus in Irving’s Las Colinas, a big step toward providing a shared home base for most of the company’s 3,000 local employees. With $455 million in planned capital investments and a scheduled opening by end of 2025, it’s one of the biggest current projects in North Texas.

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, the project aims to create 650 new jobs, as we reported when we shared news of the plan back in October 2022.

“We’re thrilled to have a new state-of-the-art campus where we can bring the majority of our local workforce together for an even better employee experience, which prioritizes wellness and sustainability,” Tanya Sanders, the firm’s head of auto, said in a statement in 2022. 

Overlooking Lake Carolyn, the 850,000-square-foot facility is located at 401 W. Las Colinas Blvd. at the corner of Promenade Parkway, a block south of W. Northwest Highway. It will consolidate multiple Wells Fargo offices currently dotted around Dallas-Fort Worth.

‘Timeless, organic, and sustainable design’

“This is a significant milestone for this incredible project for Wells Fargo, as we mark the halfway point in the construction process,” KDC CEO Steve Van Amburgh said in a statement. “Together with Wells Fargo and the development team, we’re creating a space that makes employees the priority. The timeless, organic, and sustainable design supports a healthy work environment that extends to the outside with easy access to entertainment destinations, as well as multiple restaurants and retail venues just minutes away.”

Wells Fargo says the project will deliver its first “net-positive energy campus,” since it’s expected to generate more energy than it consumes thanks to rooftop solar panels, EV charging stations, and native plantings that will minimize watering requirements. The campus is targeted for LEED Platinum environmental certification.

But the company isn’t just aiming for a green environment—it’s focused on employee wellness and amenities as well.

Employee wellness and outdoor activities

“Enhanced employee wellness and access to outdoor activities” were top priorities throughout the planning process, KDC said. The new campus will feature “well-being rooms and gyms with remotely led classes, as well as nearby walking and bicycle trails, stand-up paddle board rentals, a cycling studio, and four golf courses.”

You read that right: four golf courses. That should be welcome news for Wells Fargo employees—or any employee, for that matter—who until now have worked at jobs with only three nearby golf courses. (And two nearby golf courses? Might as well be a salt mine.)

The interior design of the two-tower campus will offer “full-scale” amenities including barista-style coffee, a world-class food hall with open-view cooking stations, and a dining hall overlooking Lake Carolyn, KDC said. A library with a high-tech workshop space will also be available, along with an onsite “tech express lounge.” 

Partners on the Wells Fargo project include Corgan (CS/TI Architect and Design); Kimley Horn (Landscape, Civil); and Austin Commercial (GC for CS/Site/TI).

KDC is a leading corporate development and investment firm for companies across the U.S. For more than three decades, it has produced around 36 million square feet valued at over $9 billion, specializing in walkable, mixed-use urban environments anchored by notable clients.
