The corporate headquarters for Nationstar Mortgage, home to approximately 900 of the company’s employees, sat vacant for several hours Monday morning as a bomb threat forced the company’s employees to evacuate the building.
A company spokesperson tells HousingWire that the threat was not made against Nationstar, but rather a nearby building that is unaffiliated with the nonbank.
“We were notified by Dallas police that there was a bomb threat at a property not owned or occupied by Nationstar but in a vicinity near our Cypress Waters location early this morning,” Kelly Ann Doherty, Nationstar’s senior vice president of corporate communications, said in a statement provided to HousingWire.
“At the police department’s request and in the best interest of our employees' safety we closed that facility,” Doherty continued. “We received notice from the Dallas Police Department recently that the area was clear and our employees can now return to the Cypress Waters building.”
Nationstar’s corporate headquarters is located in Coppell, Texas, and is located on Cypress Waters Blvd., so the company often refers to it as the Cypress Waters location.
Sources at Nationstar tell HousingWire that the company’s headquarters was evacuated sometime around 8 a.m. Central time, and the “all clear” was given around 10 a.m., allowing Nationstar’s employees to return to work after approximately two hours.
A site map of the development where Nationstar’s corporate headquarters is located shows a number of nearby buildings, housing offices for Toyota, British Telecom, iMortgage, ZAK Products, Regus, Morgan Stanley, Meritage Homes, and AMN Healthcare.
HousingWire contacted the Dallas Police Department for information on the threat, but was referred to the Coppell Police Department for further details on the investigation.
The Coppell Police Department told HousingWire that it was not involved in the investigation or search of Nationstar and the surrounding buildings and referred HousingWire back to the Dallas Police Department for more information.
