MetLife’s new Global Technology Center in Cary, North Carolina was recently made public at a ground breaking ceremony on-site. The hub’s two new office buildings, each connected to its own parking structure by a covered walkway, were designed by RJTR. The buildings will be occupied by MetLife’s product management, information technology, sales, marketing, and customer support teams. In addition to the relocation of 2,600 current associates from around the country, the North Carolina office will hire 1,200 new associates to join the life insurance company when the facility opens in mid-2015. MetLife and the developer, Highwoods Properties, are targeting LEED Gold certification or higher.
