La-Z-Boy purchases land for new headquarters
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, February 15, 2013
MONROE, Mich. - La-Z-Boy said it has completed the purchase of 120 acres of land that will be the site of its new corporate headquarters here.
The land purchase, coupled with last month's approval of a variety of state, county and local incentives to support the project, paves the way for the company to begin final design work on the building and site.
La-Z-Boy said it hopes to break ground this spring and move into the new headquarters in late 2014 or the first half of 2015.
The land was acquired from the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary order for an undisclosed price.
Preliminary plans include a LEED certified headquarters building nestled into a parcel of land across from an oak savannah, vegetated swales in parking lots, walking trails for employees, and other natural features.
