Builders are moving ahead with plans to redevelop part of the former Raytheon Corp. campus in Garland.The $50 million, 41-acre project was recently approved by the city and will be called Jupiter Miller Business Center.Dallas-based Langford Property Co. is developing the project at the southeast corner of Marquis Drive and South Jupiter Road.Langford plans to construct three industrial buildings with 800,000 square feet.The real estate firm first demolished more than 627,000 square feet of buildings - some dating back to the 1950s.The new industrial buildings are scheduled for completion next summer."Garland's industrial corridor is very robust and in high demand right now," Eric Langford, Managing Partner at Langford Property, said in statement.
