Heritage Auctions has moved its global headquarters into a new state-of-the-art, 160,000 square-foot facility and multi-purpose campus near DFW Airport. Nearly 450 of Heritage’s more than 600 employees will occupy its new office.
The new headquarters are twice the size of Heritage’s longtime Oak Lawn home at 3500 Maple Avenue. The move allowed the company to consolidate its three separate Dallas locations under a single roof. The single-story complex spans the length of nearly three football fields.
Transwestern Principal Nora Hogan facilitated the move, with additional support from Principal Robert Deptula and Vice President Jordan Wade. Mark Hayes, with HPI Real Estate Services and Investments, represented the landlord, Bandera Ventures.
“After reviewing all available options, Heritage Auctions decided to start with a clean slate under one location that still allows for superior worldwide customer service to clients,” said Hogan. “Located at the intersection of two major highways, this space allows Heritage to easily serve out-of-town clients as well as DFW residents who need appraisals. This location also allows them to serve [DFW] while keeping a Dallas address, which is where the company started and is considered an integral part of the Heritage legacy.”
In the works for more than a year, this consolidation is the most significant expansion in the firm’s history and comes at just the right moment.
Heritage is already renown as the world’s largest collectibles auction house—a global leader in coins, comic books, sports, and entertainment memorabilia, among 40 categories. In recent years, however, the company has made dramatic and significant expansions into the realms of fine art, fine and rare jewelry and timepieces, luxury handbags, rare wines, and historic nature and science artifacts.
The move to the new facility will increase operational efficiencies and allow Heritage to serve better its more than 1 million clients, both buyers, and consigners from across the globe, according to a news release.
The new facility, located at 2801 W. Airport Freeway, features an 8,000 square foot gallery showroom for invitational art exhibitions and events, such as collectibles shows.
“We are excited to now be in the middle of Dallas-Fort Worth near one of the world’s largest airports,” said CEO and Co-Founder Steve Ivy. “This location and facility will better serve all of our clients, including bidders and consignors, who visit our showrooms or consign with us.”
