The Cary Town Council unanimously approved a site plan for a new building on the SAS campus, allowing the business software company to move forward with construction on its 24th building.
The plan calls for a nine-story, 415,000-square-foot building, known as Building A, at the intersection of SAS Campus Drive and Trenton Road. The new building will feature a full-service cafe and space for customer meetings.
The proposal includes several modifications, such as a reduction in required parking. SAS also committed to make an improvement to the intersection of North Harrison Avenue and the eastbound Interstate 40 exit ramp to improve traffic flow in the area.
Town Senior Planner Kevin Hales said the company has a few more steps to take before construction can begin, including completing the development review process and acquiring the necessary permits.
Earlier this year, SAS spokeswoman Shannon Heath said the company plans to erect Building A to accommodate future growth.
“We are pretty much at capacity across the campus,” she said. “As our revenue continues to grow, we are going to need space for customer meetings and future expansion.”
