MCALLEN, Texas – Tech giants Zoho have published a brochure to explain its plans to build a 90-acre campus in McAllen.
The City of McAllen has steered Zoho towards flood-prone Green Jay Park, just south of I-2 on Ware Road. But that is in a flood zone and the City’s planning and zoning committee has yet to move the park from agricultural to light industrial.
Plans to develop Green Jay Park are opposed by local residents, birders, environmentalists and disc golfers.
The 20-page brochure includes information about Zoho, its plans to expand in McAllen and the Rio Grande Valley, the proposed campus, and its Del Valle office near Austin.
The brochure is featured in the slideshow below.
Tejas Gadhia, head of Zoho’s McAllen Office, said the company appreciated the opportunity to participate in a recent neighborhood meeting hosted by the City of McAllen.
Gadhia said he was pleased to hear of the concerns about the city’s potential sale of land to our company.
“We understand that there are a variety of perspectives on this issue, and we are committed to working with the city to explore all possible options,” Gadhia said.
“Nothing is final yet, but we are excited about the potential to deepen our roots and expand our operations in McAllen in a way that benefits the entire community. We will continue to work with the city to ensure that any development is in the best interests of everyone involved.”
