After the merger the downstream people moved to FFX and most of them were so sad at what little home they could buy their versus what they had in Houston -- so now they can have their more spacious homes back when they return.

Y'all won't be happy when the taxes increase and home prices are affected with that many homes on the market. Not good that the tax money will go away and all of the charitable giving...don't forget about that!

If he knew NoVa, he'd be trying to get the H out of Houston. All the charm of Kandahar but the weather is worse.

ExxonMobil announced today that the NoVa office will be relocated to the new north-of-Houston campus 2014-2015.

This will definitely at least make a transient ding on the local economy. 2600 people are employed in that office...that's a lot of well-paid people leaving the area and putting their homes on the market.

From a Washington post article 2 years ago:
"The losses would stretch simply beyond jobs, as Exxon employees donated $2.7 million to local charities last year, benefiting more than 500 groups, and have given more than $16 million since 2002."

Agree. A private sector job loss of this magnitude is unfortunate.

I dont think by 2014-2015 that the economy will necessarily be a huge problem... nor is it even a real issue in our area right now, I think we should be looking for better companies than an exxon mobile, regardless of how much they gave to charity. Booz Allen(and others) give 10 of millions to charity but they don't have to publicize it like Exxon does to counter the god awful image of exxon.

1.6 million people live in PWC/Fairfax/Loudoun. I dont think that losing a couple thousand people is going to send a shockwave through our real estate market. That business park in Dunn Loring will be filled within a year after they are gone and likely with a less evil company.
