Phillips 66 Chooses Westchase District Site for New Global Headquarters
- Sep 17, 2012
Independent downstream energy company Phillips 66 has released plans that it will soon start building its new global headquarters at a 14-acre site in the Westchase District.
The property—soon to be acquired from an affiliate of Thomas Property Group Inc.—is located off Beltway 8 West, between Westheimer Road and Briar Forest Drive. Set in one of the most desirable business sections of the city, the site will place the new Phillips 66 headquarters near many of Houston’s top companies.
“We searched for several months for the right site to build a headquarters campus where our employees and future employees can come together to work, and develop their skills and talents,” said Greg Garland, chairman & CEO of Phillips 66. “This property is conveniently located in the Westchase District and a location that aligns with our commitment to making our company a great place to work.”
The company is currently working on a design for the headquarters and intends to begin construction when plans are finalized and permitting is in place. The campus will include office space, conference and training facilities, along with wellness and dining options. Once ground is broken at the new site, construction is expected to take between 24 and 36 months.
After emerging as an independent downstream company in May, Phillips 66 relocated its corporate offices from the ConocoPhillips campus in the Energy Corridor to temporary headquarters at the Pinnacle Westchase building. The company has approximately 14,000 employees worldwide.
