After months of speculation, accounting giant Ernst & Young LLP confirmed Thursday that it will move its North Texas headquarters to the Victory project near downtown.
Ernst & Young will lease about 150,000 square feet in the One Victory Park building which is under construction just north of Woodall Rodgers Freeway. The company will move into the 20-story building, which is 85 percent leased, in July 2009.
“We are very pleased to join other well established Dallas companies in making the exciting move to Victory Park,” Ernst & Young Managing Partner Clint McDonnough said in announcing the planned move.
Other tenants in the building will include law firm Haynes & Boone LLP and PlainsCapital Bank.
With this project substantially leased, Victory developer Hillwood is already planning a second office tower next door.
