Light-filled building will greet newly naturalized citizens

June 01, 2007 |

A new U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Building for the Department of Homeland Security is being built in Irving, Texas. The facility, designed by 4240 Architecture of Chicago, will house the USCIS's Dallas office and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2008. The two-story, 50,000-sf building replaces two separate USCIS offices. This project is the third DHS building to be completed or under construction by developer JDL Castle Corporation of Winston-Salem, N.C. “The Irving facility has the stature of a United States Government building,” said Robert Benson of 4240 Architecture, lead designer on the project. “At the same time, it is approachable and not imposing to immigrants seeking assistance and citizenship status.”
