Santander Expands at Richland Pointe in NRH
Santander Consumer USA recently put forth plans to expand into the remaining 35,000 square feet of space at the Richland Pointe Office Center at 5201 Rufe Snow Drive. The consumer finance company has occupied approximately 165,000 square feet at the complex since 2002. The expansion will give them a new total of 200,000 square feet of space for the 1,650 employees that work at this location.
For Santander, the expansion represents a transition to a more open and collaborative work environment for its employees. This shift began with the company’s corporate headquarters at Thanksgiving Tower in Dallas, which now occupies 14 floors and includes fewer traditional offices and more open collaborative spaces in addition to employee amenities like an on-site clinic, mother’s rooms, and a prayer room. This enhanced work environment has proven successful and the company plans to incorporate elements of this new office model into each of their office locations.
