so the article is wrong?

Did you read it? Just asking... Anyway, "Two BriarLake Plaza, the final phase of the complex, will be constructed on a 1.5-acre site at the corner of W. Sam Houston Parkway and Briar Forest Drive in the heart of the Westchase Management District.."

Ah come on folks.., enough already! BW8 and Briar Forest.., TowerSpotter is 2 miles off but I'm happy he spotted this one as I had not seen it mentioned anywhere else.

Maybe someone can simply remove the "(I-10)". Thanks TowerSpotter, nice find..., keep'em coming.

Yes but I misread swtsig's statement actually. I was the one saying it was Beltway 8 too

No, headquarters will be in San Jose.

 

No, the headquarters is not and will not be in San Jose.  Again, we are talking here about Samsung Engineering.  The US headquarters of Samsung Engineering is in Houston.   Samsung Engineering is an affiliate company of, but is not the same as, the Samsung Electronics and Samsung Semiconductor that have US headquarters in San Jose.

What?! So there is more than one samsung?

 

They are both part of the same conglomerate. This building in Houston is the headquarters of the Samsung company that does engineering for petrochem projects. They compete with Jacobs, Becthel, KBR, etc... nothing to do with cell phones.

 

Samsung is one of the biggest business in the world. If you go to South Korea you'll see Samsung brand apartment buildings, cars, plumbing fixtures, etc... 

 

There are a few companies in Korea that make just about everything over there. I once visited SK in Seoul to meet with them about a refinery project in Saudi Arabia. I noticed while I was there that even the toilets in the SK building were made by SK. One of the guys in a meeting I was in drove an SK motorcycle.

 

This building is the headquarters of Samsung Engineering America, not Samsung.

Ok but it still doesn't say "headquarters" anywhere.
