The secrets of Exxon Mobil's new north Houston "campus" are finally revealed

The secrets of Exxon Mobil's new north Houston "campus" are finally revealed

A video rendering of Exxon Mobil's new mysterious massive office campus has come out, shedding light on a project that's been shrouded in secrecy. The Houston Business Journal discovered and posted the video.

Planned for a 385-acre wooded site on company-owned land at the intersection of I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road, the complex is set to consolidate the oil company's many Houston offices into one central location.

 "How do we create an urban vibe? How do we create some energy in the campus?" 

Visitors will approach the new site through a bold glass structure called the Energy Center, which will house corporate training areas and conference rooms. The campus beyond will integrate low-rise administrative buildings with extensive laboratory and research space.

"One of the things when we started the project that really piqued our interest about this project was this notion of a campus," Exxon Mobil project executive Mike Brown says in the video.

"How do we create an urban vibe? How do we create some energy in the campus?"

Brown explains the company's effort to create a pedestrian-friendly environment where people "come across each other by foot," yet never have to walk more than seven minutes from building to building.

The complex features "lifestyle-friendly" facilities such as a child care center and a wellness center as well as on-site dining options.

"We're creating a community that enables us to enjoy our work environment and be more productive at the same time."

Check out the video above. The animated renderings start at 1:27.
