HOUSTON | Chevron 1600 Louisiana | 254m | 832ft | 50 fl | Pro



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

July 3, 2013

Quote:
Today Chevron announced plans to construct an office building downtown to accommodate its business growth and expanding workforce in the Houston area.

The 50-story, 1.7 million-square-foot building will be located at 1600 Louisiana at Pease. Together with Chevron U.S.A.ís existing properties at 1500 Louisiana and 1400 Smith, the buildings will comprise an expanded urban campus with indoor and outdoor common areas, enhanced dining facilities, a fitness center, training and conference facilities, and additional parking.

Groundbreaking will follow final investment decision for the project Ė expected in the second quarter of 2014 Ė and phased occupancy is anticipated to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016 and end in 2017.

Houston-area supervisors will be engaged to determine staffing needs, and announcements about who is moving and when will follow final investment decision. There are no plans to move Chevron Corporationís headquarters to Houston. Also, there are no plans to sell or vacate our Bellaire or Briarpark properties at this time, though Chevron intends to consolidate its leased spaces into the downtown campus by the time of its completion in 2017.

This announcement underscores Chevronís long-term commitment to Houston and its role as the epicenter of the global energy industry. Houston plays a vital and growing role in Chevronís global business, and the expanded urban campus will provide a first-rate work environment for its workforce and help us remain the employer of choice.

I love it when multiple 1,000,000sqft+ buildings are referred as a "campus".

Looks very good. Houston is a nice city and it has one big advantage over NYC or Chicago and that is climate

would one be safe to assume the podium is 4 stories? they are obviously very tall floors.. and the tower on top is 50 stories, with the top and bottom stories being two floors high. this tower will end up being almost as tall as a 60 story building.

Nice tower. Isn't there already a building at the address though? I think there is. Does anyone know what it is?

there used to be a YMCA there, but it was torn down last year. Currently, it's empty green space.

there was supposedly a team on-site testing soil samples.. sounds like prep to me

Well, for me it is a gigantic advantage. It is the only thing that can make somebody like me, who dislikes traveling, want to move away from my home country

Only the tower on the left is going to be built? I believe I've seen the other two built already

What the heck is going on in Houston? Is there a small boom or what? Sure seems like it.

I still prefer to call them a complex. Nice addition to the Houston skyline.
