Peloton will begin hiring hundreds more employees and expanding its Plano footprint in 2021, commercial real estate services firm CBRE announced in a Dec. 9 release.

The fitness platform is adding another 103,750 square feet to its Legacy Central offices by taking over an adjacent single-story building, the release said. The expansion means the company's more than 131,000 square feet in Plano is now four times larger than the previous lease and will allow the company to hire up to 1,600 new corporate employees over the next five years.

Among the additions to the Plano campus are a state-of-the-art fitness center, wellness and mother's rooms, and a corporate training hub, David Deason, senior vice president of Peloton, said in the release.

"Our new building at Legacy Central helps our goal to be the best place to work and will be reflective of our collaborative culture,” he said.

Peloton opened its Plano offices, located at 7500 Windrose Ave., Ste. B165, in 2018. CBRE headed up an assessment of the Dallas-Fort Worth market for the company to determine whether the area could support Peloton's growth. The company found that the workforce pipeline in Plano is growing and more educated than in other areas.

"Our analysis showed that Plano scores well above the national average across most categories," Michael Conner, first vice president of labor analytics for CBRE, said in the release.

Peloton's flagship headquarters and studios are located in New York City. The company's second office building at Legacy Central is set to open in summer 2021. 469-804-5691.
