KXAS is set to begin construction this month on a 75,000 square foot broadcast facility in Dallas, the NBC O&O announced yesterday.

The station expects construction to be completed on the $16 million studio by the end of 2013. The new location will also serve as the home of the Telemundo station in Dallas and smaller business associated with NBC Universal. About 300 employees will work in the new building.
