  1. ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Technical Training Center Project: ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Technical Training Center, Houston Client ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Architect: PageSoutherlandPage Contractor: D.E. Harvey Consultants: Shen Milsom Wilke (av/acoustics); ASA Consulting Engineers (structrual); ARCADIS (civil); The Office of James Burnett (landscape); Sunland Engineering (traffic); HBC/Terracon (soils); Bridges International (roofing); Moisture Technology Corp. (curtain wall) Photographer: Tim Griffiths Floor Plan The design of the ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Technical Training Center, completed in May 2004, blends the old with the new. The two-story 98,000-sf facility responds to the materials and horizontality of the existing Buffalo Speedway campus, but applies a new combination of forms and material relationships. The new building's design becomes more creative as it moves away from its junction with the 1950s-era McKie and Kamrath building, notable for its strips of brick, glass and shading devices. The new facility's facade steps toward the street in a series of layers composed of Central Texas limestone, glass, and brick. Another material - a canted curved metal panel - is introduced to represent ExxonMobil's innovative technology. The facility houses a grand lobby and gallery, classrooms of various sizes, two large areas for breakout sessions, as well as support and office spaces for training staff. The terrazzo floor in the lobby is an abstract pattern representing fluvial systems studied within the training center. Classrooms are equipped for the latest media, and a visualization classroom takes advantage of a large projection screen that can be configured in several ways, including as four sides of a cube. Parking for approximately 458 cars is provided adjacent to the training facility. The project distinguishes itself by covering a wide range of subject matter, from the tactile nature of oil field hardware and geologic material to the virtual world of computer models and simulations. All elements combine to create a training tool which will serve thousands of students annually from around the world who are involved in ExxonMobil's exploration, development, production, and research enterprises. --Courtney Mahaffey Link
  2. From the HBJ, I don't have access to the whole article: "The Four Oaks Place office complex may soon be more appropriately named Five Oaks Place. The owner of the 1.8 million-square-foot office complex in the Galleria area is looking at spending between $100 million and $120 million to develop a new office building at 1550 Post Oak Blvd., where a 24 Hour Fitness is currently located" It's about to get busy in that area...

  3. I know there's been some discussion in the past of the site that the Scamrock was planned for, and that Hines had been involved with the site as of late. After stumbling across this page & the rendering included, I was wondering if anyone had additional info on it. http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w208/houtosme/HinesNorthTower.jpg Webcam: http://oxblue.com/open/hines/609main Latest Renderings and Info as of 10/2013 : http://hines.com/press/releases/10-24-13.aspx http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/w9/w960vwofy7my72oy.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/at/att9aiqc5uz5sf5o.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/lt/ltivpvzn6h9rnbwy.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/cv/cvwqzwxm50bfvh4s.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/n6/n6xuq3hkree2obz6.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/b8/b8p8laaumu4b9awg.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/v9/v91wethv1vtxoh48.jpg http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/qy/qy68m8vbgxgcfcqe.jpg
  4. HBJ reports today that ExxonMobil plans to build a new very large campus in Spring (west of I-45 at the point where the Hardy Toll Road intersects with I-45). The plan is to consolidate pretty much everything except for the downtown operations. Also reports a rumor that at least parts of the Refining & Marketing HQ operations may move from Virginia.
  5. Newsflash Not much info here; anyone have the scoop?
  6. Does anyone know if/where Micro Center would be relocating if this is true? From Swamplot: http://swamplot.com/did-micro-center-just-sell-its-houston-location-to-amegy-bank/2014-02-25/ Webcam: http://www.workzonecam.com/projects/amegybank/amegybank/workzonecam Renderings:
  7. This would pretty sweet if built, and it's design is different from the usual Woodlands building. Designed by Pickard Chilton http://www.bizjourna...allery&img_no=1 http://www.bizjourna...-woodlands.html
  8. Somebody over at SSP is claiming that he has a credible source telling him this building is confirmed and going up. Rendering looks to be 40-50 stories and says Q1 2013 completion....so I would expect a 2009 groundbreaking.
  9. whats up w/ this building...Emporis says its on hold but i havent heard anything about it in forever...any news?
