Harris Corp., headquartered in Melbourne, FL, is planning the construction of a new $100 million engineering center on its Palm Bay campus. The construction of the new building is scheduled to begin in mid-2012; the new energy-efficient building will be replacing two older buildings on the Palm Bay campus. The project will allow Harris to add 100 new jobs, mostly engineering, to its Brevard County workforce of 6,500. Additionally, the work of constructing the new building will generate 300 jobs for the Melbourne/Palm Bay area. Harris hopes that the new 6-story, 450,000 square-foot engineering and technology center will help attract new talent to the Space Coast. Some features of the new Harris building will include a cafeteria and a health center, as well as landscaped walking and cycling paths.

Harris Corporation has more than 16,000 employees worldwide, and revenue close to $6 billion. BRPH, a local company based in Palm Shores, will be designing the new building.

Wow, can you believe all of these great new jobs and infrastructure coming to the Space Coast?! First, Boeing’s announcement that it will be setting up shop at Kennedy Space Center, then the Air Force’s announcement about new jobs on the Space Coast, and now Harris’s plans for expansion. The economy in Brevard County, Florida sure is looking good!

If you are thinking about relocating to the beautiful Space Coast to take advantage of one of these great opportunities, I would love to show you around the area! Call or email me and I can help you find a home or condo convenient to Harris, Patrick Air Force Base, or Kennedy Space Center!
