Town & Country/City Centre *Update*

Recommended Posts

This may actually be more underwhelming than the Phillips 66 headquarters down the road in Westchase, which is saying something. Timoric is right, big oil is going low profile. It looks like Marathon split into two companies some time back, with the refining division headquartered in Ohio and just the upstream division here. I don't have full access to the Fortune site so it seems like the upstream division has fallen off the top 500 list. But if they are hurting for cash it does not make sense to lease new office space vs. occupying older, cheaper space. I think this is about competing for younger talent, as well as the shorter commute. City Centre is a more interesting locale than the current tower's isolation on San Felipe.

It's also on the eastern edge of the energy corridor and at the crossroads of I10 and the beltway, which makes access to other industry partners a little easier.

Earth moving equipment on the site of City Centre North (along I-10 Frontage Rd) spotted yesterday. Something in the works?

 

Are these the towers that they been proposing to build since like 2015?

quick question - is the completed glass building in the background with AWS and that yellow arrow symbol anything to do with Amazon ?  If it is, I think that is so awesome !  But, do correct me if its something else entirely.

I wonder if City Centre has put out a timeline for the tower that is going up next to this. Any news on that?

As much as I like that roundabout, I'm not sure that's a good idea in this spot.  It looks nice but mixing traffic and pedestrians there isn't the best idea.

Curious as well. Also, it appears the new Marathon Oil HQ is not under construction.

Don't you mean City Centre 6 isn't under construction? Marathon Oil HQ is under construction.
