In January I announced a completed sale of our home office and Richmond branch building. There was just one minor detail at the time I did not know – where exactly will we be going? Since then, an extensive search for both the branch and office has been conducted. I am excited to say we will be moving our home office to the third floor of the Holland Tower building located at 2221 Edward Holland Drive, Richmond VA 23230.
This central location offers our home office Associates quick access to Interstate 64. Furthermore, this area of town is considered by many to be Richmond’s developing ‘midtown’. In addition to a great location, the building and office space is clean, well-kept and has large windows throughout, letting in an abundance of natural light. Our vision is to design a work place that is friendly, modern, and culturally consistent with the company’s family values and mission statement.
As work place environments evolve and our business continues to grow, it became apparent a move was necessary. It is my hope the transition into our new space demonstrates our long-term investment both in the business and in our talented Lansing Associates. I am confident this move will allow our home office team members to continue to elevate their level of service to our valuable branch Associates and customers.
The plan is to occupy the nearly 25,000 sq. ft. office space by the end of this year or beginning of 2018. As the design and build-out progress, a more detailed time line will be provided. As for the new Richmond branch location, I do not have an announcement yet, but we are moving quickly to identify a suitable location.
These are thrilling times for me, my family, and the business. I feel privileged to be sharing them with you. Thank you for all that you do in making LBP great!
