One of Plano’s oldest headquarters in the Legacy business area has sold to Dallas-based Highland Capital.
The former offices of Electronic Data Systems is on a sprawling 98-acre, multi-story campus that currently houses Hewlett Packard’s enterprise division. It was most recently owned by DXC Technology, according to the special warranty deed on the sale filed with Collin County on Dec. 17.
“The DXC Technology campus, formerly EDS, has been underutilized in recent years,” Plano Chamber of Commerce CEO Jamee Jolly said. “With the increased interest in the Legacy area by corporations from around the world, the complex is in an ideal location in one of the fastest-growing job markets.”
A media representative for Highland Capital was not immediately available for comment regarding the company’s plans for the campus.
The EDS headquarters helped kick off development in that area of Plano.
“The work that Mr. H. Ross Perot put into building an iconic campus for his company back in the late ’80s created the catalyst for all of the current development you are seeing in the area,” Jolly said. “The complex of buildings sits on a beautiful site that will be an ideal location with unique amenities, whether it is sold off to a single buyer or utilized as a complex that would be home to numerous businesses.”
