November 22, 2013: Phillips Breaks Ground on New Headquarters Building
The Houston Business Journal reported on November 22, 2013 that Phillips broke ground on November 22, 2013 on its new 1.1 million-square-foot corporate campus in the Westchase District that will house all of the company’s 1,800 Houston-area employees once construction is finished in about three years.
The Houston Chronicle reported on July 23, 2013 that Phillips' new headquarters, still in "conceptual design phase,” will include about 1.1 million square-feet of space in multiple buildings, along with a cafeteria, fitness center, coffee shop and conference center. The new facility, located on about 14 acres, will provide office space for the 1,800 employees that work for the company in Houston. Construction is expected to start by the end of the year. We are excited about our new state-of-the art Phillips 66 headquarters facility, which when built, will provide a location for all of our Houston employees to work together at one location, and it will provide our global employees with a place to meet, train and grow,” said spokeswoman Janet Grothe.
September 12, 2012: Phillips Selects Site for New Global Headquarters
Phillips reported on September 9, 2012 that the company will build its new global headquarters at a 14-acre site located off Beltway 8 West, between Westheimer Road and Briar Forest Drive. “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 C. Garland, chairman and chief executive officer 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.” Once ground is broken at the new site, construction is expected to take between 24-36 months.
July 9, 2012: Interim Headquarters Selected
CSPNet reported on July 9, 2012 that Janet Grothe, senior adviser for health, safety and the environment at Phillips 66, confirmed that Phillips 66 has settled on a temporary headquarters in the Pinnacle Westchase building near ConocoPhillips' home office in the Houston "Energy Corridor." ConocoPhillips' headquarters is about eight miles away. In March, 2012 it sent an email to employees that said the new headquarters would be constructed near Interstate 10, within 10 miles of ConocoPhillips' current headquarters. The Pinnacle Westchase building fits that general description.
March 20, 2012: Phillips 66 Headquarters to be Located in Houston
Houston Business Journals reported on March 20, 2012 that according to an email sent to employees, the new headquarters of refining and marketing spin-off company Phillips 66 will be near Interstate 10 and Beltway 8, within 10 miles of ConocoPhillips' current headquarters at 600 N. Dairy Ashford Road. The decision to locate in Houston was made because the company’s oil and gas infrastructure is already present. During the two- to three-year construction period on the new facility, Phillips 66 employees will be located in temporary locations in the company’s current space.
