A new $1.7 billion cybersecurity firm is the latest company to locate in Plano’s Legacy West complex.

Trellix — newly created from a merger of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye Security Holdings — is taking 85,000 square feet of offices in the Legacy West Urban Village on Headquarters Drive.

The new office is in a recently completed office, retail and apartment block across the street from Liberty Mutual Insurance’s Plano regional headquarters.

Trellix’s Chris Palm confirmed the new Plano operation in an email.

“This new organization will be opening an office housing the employees and assets of its combined operations in Plano,” Palm said. “The overall presence in the area will remain what it was prior to the McAfee Enterprise-Fire Eye merger.”

Palm said Trellix will release additional details “in the months to come.”

The new office is set to open later this summer, according to planning documents filed with the state. Details about how many employees will work there weren’t disclosed.

Dallas architect BOKA Powell is designing the new space.

McAfee has long had an office in Legacy business park on Preston Road. That property is being sold to Austin-based investor Capital Commercial.

Trellix joins Boeing, Toyota Connected and other firms that have offices in the Legacy West Urban Village.

Symphony Technology Group acquired and merged FireEye and McAfee into the new Trellix brand last year. Trellix is based in California.

The new Plano office lease is one of the largest such deals in the Legacy business park in recent months. And the transaction fills one of the last empty spaces in the Legacy West Urban Village.

Developer Karahan Cos. built the office and retail building, which will house Trellix’s new operations.

Legacy West is home to some of Plano’s biggest employers, including Toyota, JPMorgan Chase and FedEx Office.
