American Express received approval from the city commission for its 400,000 square-foot regional headquarters this week, just six months after its $21.5 million purchase of the Sunrise property from a company tied to Coral Gables-based Flagler.

The building, which American Express anticipates will qualify for LEED certification, will house the company’s 3,000 employees from Plantation, Weston and Miramar.

The plans call for two glass-sided buildings connected by an atrium to be situated south of the southeast corner of Sunrise Boulevard and NW 136th Avenue. Construction is set to begin in early 2015 and will take two years to complete.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, American Express had previously considered relocating its headquarters to either North Carolina or Arizona. But the company received $10 million in economic incentives tied to job creation and worker retention in December. [Sun-Sentinel-Kerry Barger
