Toyota is the world’s top automaker. Over the past half-century, Toyota built 25 million cars and trucks in North America. About 85 percent of its vehicles delivered during the last 15 years are still on the road today.
In 2014, Toyota announced plans to move its North American headquarters to Plano, Texas. This followed 57 years in Los Angeles. Toyota would do more than build a new headquarters. It would consolidate key elements of its North American operations through a plan called ”One Toyota.” Unified operations promote timely decision-making and enhanced collaboration.
The grand opening of the billion-dollar, 100-acre Toyota headquarters ushered in a new era. The new campus is home to different disciplines. Financial services, marketing, and quality engineering combine with corporate offices. The seven-building complex can accommodate up to 6,000 employees. Workers enjoy amenities like a fitness center, a large food court, and even a rock wall.
Toyota’s North American headquarters is part of Legacy West. The $3 billion, 240-acre mixed-use development also hosts the headquarters of the FedEx Office. It is home to the regional campuses of JP Morgan Chase and Liberty Mutual Insurance as well. Employees and visitors enjoy ready access to high-end retail shops and restaurants. It also offers multifamily housing and hotel accommodations.
