The Woodlands Area is becoming an energy corridor as more companies directly related to the energy industry relocate to South Montgomery County and North Harris County, Texas. Along with this growth comes an increased demand for residential housing.
Building new homes in The Woodlands Area, Frankel Building Group is proudly helping to meet that demand.
Energy Industry Growth in The Woodlands Area
Construction of ExxonMobil’s new campus just south of The Woodlands is underway with about 3,000 workers on site daily. Located near I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road in north Harris County, the massive 385-acre corporate campus will open to some employees later this year and employ about 10,000 when fully open in 2015.
This new ExxonMobil campus represents one of many companies in the energy industry moving to The Woodlands Area. In a recent ABC13 article, Karen Hoylman, president and CEO of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce, said energy is the newest and most growing area of business in The Woodlands Area.
“We are becoming another energy corridor here,” she said.
Many major employers in The Woodlands Area today are ones in the energy industry, such as Anadarko Petroleum, Baker Hughes, Huntsman, Strike, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Tetra Technologies and Newpark Resources. Speaking in a recent roundtable discussion coordinated by The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership and hosted by Anadarko Petroleum, U.S. Senator John Cornyn said he was pleased with the “impressive growth and job creation taking place in The Woodlands.”
“This is a community that has fully embraced the Texas economic model of low taxes and limited regulation, and as a result, it has become one of the most desirable places to live, work, start a business and raise a family,” said Senator Cornyn.
