Posted: Updated:

PALM BAY, Fla. (AP) -- Harris Corp. is building a $100 million technology center in Palm Bay on Florida's Space Coast.
 
Gov. Rick Scott was among dignitaries who joined Harris President and CEO William Brown for a ground breaking ceremony on Tuesday.
 
Harris is a worldwide company focused on developing voice, data and video networks.
 
The energy efficient center is expected to be completed in 2014. It will house up to 1,400 employees in a work environment aimed at encouraging collaboration and innovation.
 
Brown said it also represents a commitment by Harris to be a long term presence in the region and play a key role in its economic development.
 
The tech center is a welcome boost to the area's economy, which has been suffering from the shutdown of the space shuttle program.
