<<Hate to split hairs, but I think this is a different use of the term
"headquarters.">>

Okay, then how about:

a) Our corporate headquarters is located in San Diego, California.

b) Our corporate headquarters are located in San Diego, California.

This is talking about a place, so I still think a) is correct. b) makes it
sound like more than one place.
