JLL and Equity Office Announce New Office Lease for Insurance Company

Goosehead Insurance signs lease at Solana


DALLAS, January 10, 2017 – JLL and Equity Office today announced the addition of Goosehead Insurance to the Solana Campus.  The insurance company signed a 62,000-square-foot office lease and will relocate their corporate headquarters office to Solana in Westlake, Texas.

JLL's Jeff Eckert, Blake Shipley, Jay Bailey and Frank Taylor negotiated the lease on behalf of the landlord Equity Office Properties. CBRE's Josh White and Rebecca Smith represented the tenant.

"Goosehead Insurance joins global companies Sabre, TD Ameritrade, Marsh & McLennan Companies, and Charles Schwab in making the Westlake-Southlake area their home," said Eckert. "Significant capital investments to the infrastructure, recent high-end renovations to the real estate itself and strong institutional ownership from Equity Office have made Solana a real option for companies like Goosehead Insurance to strongly consider for its office space needs."

Located in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Solana has immediate access to major suburban population hubs like Southlake, Westlake, Grapevine, Coppell, Flower Mound, Lewisville and Irving and is within ten minutes of DFW International Airport.

Solana recently completed a $70 million renovation, and currently has 1.2 million square feet of Class A office space, 44,000 square feet of retail space, as well as built-to-suit opportunities available. The property also features a recently renovated 38,000-square-foot Larry North Fitness Center, a full-service Marriott hotel and conference center, and numerous restaurants. The property includes over one million square feet of build-to-suit opportunities.
