One of the first corporations to move their corporate headquarters to Plano, JCPenney has returned with a brand new HQ.

On July 20, JCPenney announced that their renovated corporate offices would be reopening at the Campus at Legacy West. The company will return to the 320,000-square-foot building with space for 2,000 associates to work in a new hybrid strategy. The new office has an open environment with a more modern design to encourage collaboration with colleagues. 

Along with new technology for the hybrid working model the renovated office space features amenities such as two pickleball courts, an arcade, fitness centers and a golf simulator. 

“We’re thrilled to continue our legacy here with a refreshed space that allows our associates and teams to feel empowered by offering updated workspaces that cultivate a culture of collaboration, while also giving associates control and flexibility in the way they work,” said CEO Marc Rosen in the official press release. “Our reopened office space will also give us opportunities to connect with our community, associates, business and nonprofit partners.”

JCPenney operated in the same exact space for 28 years prior to the pandemic when they had to file for bankruptcy at the time. Moving to Plano from New York City in 1992, the company became one of the first to establish a corporate headquarters here before it became the business hub that it is now.

“JCPenney is proud of our history in Texas and our connection to the Campus at Legacy West,” said Rosen. “As the company enters a new era, it’s exciting to be returning to the same space as our original home office.”
