The Women’s Business Council – Southwest (WBCS) announced today, Oct. 31, that after 17 years in Arlington, its offices are being relocated to Las Colinas.
WBCS has a 22-year history of providing national certification to women-owned businesses on behalf of the Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) for the Southwest region, which includes Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and North and Central Texas.
WBCS has more than 1,200 Women Business Enterprise (WBE) Members and over 80 Sustaining (Corporate) Members.
“After more than 17 years in Arlington, WBCS made the strategic decision to move to Las Colinas for a few key reasons,” said Debbie Hurst, president of WBCS, in a news release. “Not only will this new location improve ease of access for our members who come from a four-state region–central and north Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico–but it will also enable us to, for the first time, hold membership meetings in the same location as our offices. We are excited about this move and believe it will really enhance our ability to serve our members.”
After its move in early December, the WBVS’ new regional headquarters will be in Irving’s MacArthur Center II building, Suite 220, located at 5605 N. MacArthur Blvd. The company has signed a long-term lease for 4,242 square feet in the center.
WBCS was represented in this transaction by Eliza Solender of Solender/Hall, and its new landlord was represented by Matt Hurlbut of Transwestern.
“We are excited to add WBCS to a great list of tenants in MacArthur Center II,” Hurlbut said in the release. “After some improvements to customize the space, we look forward to welcoming WBCS to the property in December.”
