Redwood Living, Inc. has purchased a new building to become its corporate headquarters. The steadily growing company, which currently has employees working in three separate buildings on East Pleasant Valley Road in Independence, Ohio, will be moving just down the road to the former ADP building.
For more than 20 years, Redwood’s mission has been to build homes for those who chose to rent throughout suburban America. Redwood’s homes combine single-story apartment homes with attached garages within a green-centric neighborhood setting. Redwood’s new headquarters offers an opportunity for the company to further incorporate its community and people-centric culture into the organization’s entire workspace. With this acquisition, Redwood is solidifying its relationship with the City of Independence, the greater Cleveland region and its employees.
“Timing could not have been more perfect for Redwood to plant additional roots and expand our space in the City of Independence,” said David Conwill, chief executive officer of Redwood, in a statement. “With close to 100 neighborhoods across Ohio, Iowa, North Carolina, Michigan, Indiana and South Carolina, we needed more room to grow internally to support upcoming company initiatives and exceed our goals benefitting all of our stakeholders.”
The purchase comes as the company expands its internal resources in support of its numerous locations spread across the Midwest and Carolinas. The new Redwood headquarters will include collaborative seating, an on-site gym, and a large meeting space for corporate meetings, events, and more. It is anticipated to be finished and ready for employees to move into by the fall of 2020.
Pride One, Redwood’s long-time partner and builder, will oversee the renovation.
