Dallas has snagged another California company that’s moving its headquarters to North Texas.
Publicly traded residential homebuilder Landsea Homes Corp. announced that it is moving its corporate headquarters from Newport Beach, California, to Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood.
The new headquarters office will be at 1717 McKinney Street and will total 7,716 square feet. Landsea Homes said it will occupy Suite 1000 on the 10th floor of the building.
Landsea CEO John Ho
“As a national publicly traded homebuilder with communities from California to Florida, this is a strategic move in the best interests of our shareholders,” Landsea Homes CEO and director John Ho said in a statement. “In addition to our overall coast-to-coast growth strategy, we’re very focused on growing our homebuilding footprint in Texas, and this move demonstrates our strong commitment to the state.”
“In addition to the logistical advantages Dallas offers, we believe this relocation is beneficial from a number of standpoints, including a lower cost of living and access to a highly educated workforce, which are critical as we continue to build our corporate team,” Ho added.
Landsea Homes is currently building homes and communities in Texas, Arizona, Florida, and throughout California in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, and Orange County.
