WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Agribusiness giant Cargill has unveiled plans for its new $60 million complex for its protein operations that it plans to build at the site where the Wichita Eagle is now located.

The company said released more details Thursday about its project, along with an artist’s rendering. The four-story, 188,000-square-foot building accommodates about 800 employees. The proposal includes a 750-space parking garage.

The Wichita Eagle reported (https://bit.ly/2gQodae ) its building will be torn down, and the new complex is anticipated to open in 2018.

Wichita is home to Cargill’s beef business and its turkey and cooked meat business, which includes deli meats. Its processed-protein services, such as its North American egg business and food distribution, also are located in Wichita.

Cargill announced plans in May to keep its protein operations in Wichita.
