Love that a company moved from a drab suburban office park to Downtown Dallas! I wish my employer would do the same!

Agreed! Even more impressive that this move happened post-COVID as well, when people are supposedly trying to get away from the cities and/or working from home more.

This is great news!

Another (now confirmed) score for Dallas' core:

Multi-billion dollar global investment firm confirms Dallas expansion

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... firms.html

Fortress Investment Group, a $53.1 billion global investment manager based in New York, will be expanding its North Texas presence at Weir's Plaza in Knox-Henderson.

The news was confirmed Wednesday, months after the Dallas Business Journal originally reported that the company had been eyeing the area for a new office. Fortress already has more than 50 employees based in Irving at Williams Square. The firm will maintain that office while leasing 47,850 square feet at Weir's Plaza.

“This announcement underscores our long-term commitment to the North Texas region,” said Fortress Managing Partner Drew McKnight in a prepared statement. “Our office in Weir’s Plaza is a perfect complement to our existing location in Irving and will provide flexibility for the continued organic growth that we anticipate in our Credit business.”

McKnight, along with Josh Pack, co-chief investment officers and managing partners of the firm’s Credit business, will be based in the new Weir’s Plaza location...

Therabody, the makers of Theragun, are adding a second HQ in Downtown Dallas. More specifically, they'll be in the East Quarter at 2200 Main St. Pretty great to see all these relocations to the EQ, and makes me even more excited to see 300 Pearl open up and the office space in that fill out (as well as the residential component).

Are we about done with this "second headquarters" silliness? What does that even mean?

I think the "second HQ" craze started (or at least grew) after Amazon did its whole HQ2 charade.

Indeed. It didn't make a whole lot of sense then and makes even less sense for most other companies that are trying to copy the hype.

Hey when you are filling out that Enterprise relocation application with the state its like checking the box for double my money. If it isn't a HQ of some kind it wont make headlines which means politicians wont get their pat on the back for jobs.
