Exxon's gigantic Houston-area campus won't overtake Irving as HQ - Dallas Business Journal

ExxonMobile must like Las Colinas and the location of DFW airport.

I agree, the logic for putting the HQ in Irving rather than Houston still is true. So no news here other than to debunk all the erroneous speculation which was off the mark.

Note to Binkyman... its ExxonMobil with out an e on the end.

Nothing new here. Dallas media and Exxon Mobil seem to have to confirm this every few months (or basically, anytime new photos and info of the campus comes out). People in Houston have their eyes set on the vacant lot that Chevron owns, where their HQ will go (and no, not the recent 50 story tower proposed, but an additional one across the street).

I didn't post this market report to shut up the Houstonians. By the way, the Houstonians sure have been quiet today.

Getting the world headquarters of ExxonMobil would have taken some of the sting out of the company deciding to go anti-skyscraper. Indeed, this isn't sky candy downtown, but a new complex in Spring that will now become one of the flattest and longest and widest corporate campuses in the world. They will even have a place to take care of future Exxon babies.

Default Binkyman's Market Report: What makes this decision by ExxonMobil really significant?

Well, the present world headquarters of Exxon is sitting atop some incredibly prime real estate. Surely, when Exxon decides to go, which it surely will do so in the future, the building they are in will surely be demolished as it resides directly northeast of the booming urban district of Las Colinas, surely speaking.

So, Exxon seems to like Las Colinas enough, at least for now, to stay put. Figure in the future that land beneath them will rise in price enough to force them to move to Houston. It is going to happen sooner or later. Greasy oil and gas just likes being around other greasy oil and gas. That is just the way of the wind.

I used to work for the company, so I see the patterns they follow. This reminds me of a joke I heard when I worked for them in Houston.

A guy asks another guy in the lobby: "Where is The Woodlands"?

"Do you know where Dallas is?"

Surprised? They are going to go. It is a sure deal. I think they like the drama involved. Look for them to move to Centerville, Texas first and stay there for about ten years just to anger all the skyscraper junkies in Houston. When they finally do get to Houston, which by that time will be Huntsville, they will build a ten million square foot tunnel to consolidate all their offices. All these executives own their own private jets for cripes sake. They can fly out of anywhere, anytime, for anyreason.
