Cargill To Locate New Headquarters In Current Wichita Eagle Building

Cargill announced today that it has selected the building currently housing the Wichita Eagle as its new headquarters.

The Wichita Eagle moved its printing operations to Kansas City earlier this year, and as a result the newspaper announced plans to downsize to a smaller building. In a news release, Cargill said that the property would be redeveloped into a newly constructed office complex accommodating about 800 people. Cargill says it has signed a letter of intent with a local investment group to acquire and develop the site, without disclosing the terms.

Wichita is home to the Cargill's beef, turkey and cooked meat business, which includes deli meats. Its processed-protein services, including its North American egg business and food distribution, also are located in Wichita.

Cargill anticipates moving into its new facility by the end of 2018.
