TJX, with its world-wide headquarters in Framingham, has filed plans with the Framingham Planning Board to construct a $23 million, 96,000 square-foot center.
The Framingham Planning Board discussed the project earlier this month, will continue its public hearing on Oct. 28 and may vote on the project by the end of 2013, said town officials.
The facility would include space for employee training, a product development library, a merchandise presentation center, and an employee fitness center, according to plans filed with the Planning Board.
The proposed plans are located on the Natick-Framingham line and thus would require approval of both communities before construction could begin.
The proposal is part of the an agreement TJX made with the Town of Framingham in 2012.
In addition, TJX must make $143 million of new investments via expansion, renovations to the existing buildings and acquisition costs and agree to maintain its headquarters in Framingham for 20 years. In exchange for these commitments, Framingham will provide tax incentive for new investments.
