UF headquarters in new orleans

Question:

During what years was United Fruit headquartered in New Orleans?

I have read that after Zemmuray took over UF in 1933, that he moved the HQ from Boston to new orleans. Yet, on the New Orleans building on St Charles ave where UF was headquarreted, it says "1920" above the name 'United Fruit Company" on the front entrance.

Any calrification on this seeming contradiction, and when the HQ was moved from N.O., would be appreciated.
