ExxonMobil is considering the possibility of consolidating multiple offices to a new corporate campus location in North Harris County, just south of The Woodlands.
ExxonMobil is the world's largest publicly traded international oil and gas company. The company is presently evaluating a financial analysis on office consolidation and relocation before making a final decision.
One of the areas of consideration is a tract of land located in North Harris County west of I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road, said ExxonMobil media spokesperson Alan Jeffers. Incidentally, ExxonMobil already owns the land.
"Basically, all options are on the table," Jeffers said. "The site has potential for new office buildings. Depending on the conclusions of the study later this year, we'll know more."
Jeffers said the options range from consolidating several of the company's offices to a central main-campus facility, including the possibility of a worldwide headquarters. Then, there is still the possibility that no action will be taken at all.
Jeffers said there have been crews onsite doing some basic work as part of the evaluation process.
If ExxonMobil does choose to develop a site in this location, like the gravitational pull of the sun, others will orbit.
Incidentally, next door to the site ExxonMobil is evaluating, CDC Houston Inc. announced last October plans for a residential and commercial development project, Springwoods Village.
Media spokesperson for CDC Houston Molly Smith said she was unable to comment on any connection to ExxonMobil.
Smith described the project as a master-planned community not unlike The Woodlands.
