Goldman Sachs, together with Hunt Realty Investments and Hillwood Urban, broke ground today on its cutting-edge new campus in downtown Dallas. The future campus represents a long-term investment in the city where Goldman Sachs has deep roots, it said.
Goldman Sachs President and Chief Operating Officer John Waldron highlighted the firm’s more than 50-year presence in Dallas, saying the new campus shows its continued commitment to the area, calling it a “testament to the incredible talent and strong client base in the region.”
Waldron said he looks forward to a bright future in Dallas and working closely with the local community for many more years.
Dallas currently is Goldman Sachs’ second-largest U.S. hub.
Visions of a modern urban workplace
The new campus will have 800,000 square feet spread over two wings, including the tallest with 14 floors. Located in downtown Dallas’ NorthEnd at 2323 North Field Street, it will sit on three acres next to a brand-new 1.5-acre urban park.
Designed by Henning Larsen Architects, the modern building will enable productivity and teamwork. It will offer many amenities including collaboration spaces, meeting areas, on-site cafe, a gym, childcare, outdoor terraces, and more.
Aiming for top LEED and WELL certifications, plans for an all-electric workplace will support Goldman Sachs’ sustainability efforts. The company said it will promote project collaborations with small, diverse, and local talent, aligning with the firm’s objectives for supplier diversity.
Partners Hunt Realty CEO Chris Kleinert and Hillwood Chairman Ross Perot, Jr. were on hand to celebrate the kickoff. “We look forward to developing a one-of-a-kind facility for Goldman Sachs and its workforce,” Perot said.
A legacy of leadership in Dallas
With room for over 5,000 employees, the campus will bring together Goldman Sachs’ Dallas workforce. The financial company currently has about 4,000 workers in the area.
Goldman Sachs employees here represent all company divisions, serving local and national clients, the company said. Strategically located downtown near popular attractions like the Perot Museum, American Airlines Center, and the Katy Trail, the new urban campus will support Goldman Sachs’ professional community when finished in late 2027.
The expansion also allows deeper partnerships with local schools to improve recruiting and training programs, Goldman Sachs said in today’s announcement.
A “unique and mighty engine of economic growth”
“Luring the biggest names in business is becoming business as usual in Dallas — but this is a major moment for our city,” Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said in a statement.
“Goldman Sachs is the premier name in finance and investment banking. The expansion of this global brand in our city center is a remarkable sign of how far Dallas has come in recent years as we have focused on attracting talent and businesses by prioritizing public safety, improving quality of life, and reducing our tax rate.”
Johnson said the new campus development also signals that “there are still greater things to come for a city that is already a unique and mighty engine of economic growth for our entire nation.”
