In 1992, JCPenney completed the Home Office located on a 125 acre landscaped campus maintained with native Texas wildflowers and grasses; drought tolerant plants; and environmentally sounds materials; all encircled by a 1.5 mile walk/jog path. The grounds are enhanced with a six-acre man-made lake serving as a beautiful place to eat lunch while providing an environmental necessity by collecting the site's storm water runoff.

The campus is anchored by a 1.9 million square foot building home to nearly 5,000 employees and provides amenities including a full-service cafeteria, fitness center, full-service medical clinic, child care facility, post office, Starbucks coffee shop and employee gift shop.

The JCPenney Home Office is comprised of a quarter mile natural lit and landscaped atrium flanked by eight office wings.  The building utilizes a low rise design encouraging walking along the landscaped atriums, walkways and bridges to stimulate associate interaction and enhance communication through informal exchange. The office wings comprise of an open office environment with an increased building perimeter to distribute natural indirect lighting throughout most of the building during the day.  An automatic window shade system and a wider than normal exterior overhang reduce solar heat gain by limiting the amount of direct sunlight allowed into the building. The building is under one of the largest copper roofs in the United States, utilizing 6.5 acres of sustainable material.

The JCPenney Home Office implemented nearly 40 energy saving initiatives over the past five years to reduce energy consumption.  Major initiatives included:
