Dallas--Signet Jewelers Ltd. is moving its Dallas headquarters from Irving, Texas, into a 1,000-acre mixed-use development called Cypress Waters.

Signet’s current location in Irving, the longtime home to Zale Corp. before its acquisition by Signet in 2014, totals approximately 414,000 square feet.

Its new Dallas Support Center campus in Cypress Waters will total 256,000: 225,000 square feet of office space on a lake-front site and a 31,000-square-foot facility for Signet Manufacturing. (Signet has a total of three manufacturing facilities, the one in Texas plus locations in Akron and Canada. The factories do stone setting and repair work.)

The estimated cost of the Signet’s new support center campus is $50.5 million.

A project of Dallas real estate developer Billingsley Company, Cypress Waters is a $3.5 billion development.

Construction on Signet’s new facilities, which will be the first office campus constructed on the lake, is scheduled to begin in June and be completed by end of 2017.
