Uber Makes Massive Move With New HQ Coming To Dallas!
By Alex
August 21, 2019

        Boom Goes The Dynamite!  That is one of Mark Cuban's most expressive sayings from the hit tv show, Shark Tank.  However, the news from yesterday has nothing to do with Shark Tank or Mark Cuban, but even a Billionaire like him would be happy about the announcement from yesterday!

        Move aside Amazon HQ2, because Uber is moving more the 3,000 employees to Dallas with it's new HQ being built in Deep Ellum!  400 employees will be in Dallas by years end.  These employees being relocated to Dallas will be hubbed in The Epic building while a new Epic called by some, The Epic 2, is being constructed across the street.  

        The average salary for these sales force and tech oriented emplyees will be $100,000.  Which is some serious cash!  This is huge for the people of Dallas!  Those are 3,000 employees that will all need new housing.  So the Real Estate Market just got a lot hotter!  This means more relocation, more listings hitting the market, and more home buyers!  It also means that Dallas will be on a lot of peoples radar's.

        I have to admit that I was pretty bummed about Amazon not moving here.  After the end result settled in it put everything into perspective.  Do we really want 25,000+ employees all clogging up the highways and have to redo almost every aspect of infrastructure around the proposed HQ just to support that many people on top of all the traffic we already have?  Well, the answer is "no".  For some the answer was "hell no!"  Sure as a Dallas Real Estate Agent it could have been huge for home sales, but maybe that was  a little selfish of me.  3,000 Uber employees is doable!  Is that statment a little biased?...perhaps.

        Ubers big move comes to no surprise as Dallas has one of the hottest economies in the U.S.  Not to mention that Deep Ellum is a very hip area in South/East Downtown Dallas.  So this size of a move sounds about right.  Also, the Dallas Mayor stated in a news conference yesterday that there have been a lot of large HQ moves to the suburbs like Plano, but this move has special provisions that direclty impact Dallas and the people of Dallas. 

        South of Downtown Dallas has been a very weakened and sad part of our amazing city for many years.  There has been an influx of drugs, crime, and trash in the streets.  A lot of times people turn up there nose when a conversation about South Dallas or South of Downtown Dallas comes up.  Improving the lives of the people down there is needed.  We need to work with Uber to not push people out, but to create growth and an excitement that will help improve everyones lives in Dallas.  

        Specifics about the Uber deal has not yet been layed out in detail, but both Uber and Dallas are very smart.  So I look forward to hearing more.  I am so happy to be one of the Top Dallas Real Estate Agents working near Uber HQ, and I can't wait to see what happens!  I hope the city does well, and I hope all the hard working REALTORS in Dallas will benefit from this big news.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs!
