Horton Plaza- Construction Is Underway
Redevelopment of Horton Plaza from the shopping mall to the office campus has started!
Known as the Campus at Horton, the high-profile conversion project calls for a bulk of the 10-block property, or 772,000 square feet, to be remade into office space for tech firms and as many as 4,000 of their workers. Another 300,000 square feet will be reserved for ground-floor retail tenants that cater to workers’ needs and appetites. The remade facility will feature an abundance of natural light, solar panels on most rooftops, a blackwater recycling system, and a carbon-neutral design.
A team of architects and consultants, led by Retail Design Collaborative and Rios Clementi Hale Studios, will bring a leading-edge architectural design to the project. The redevelopment is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021 and will then be home to 3,000 to 4,000 tech jobs. The project is tentatively set for completion in early 2022.
