Anadarko building new office tower

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Anadarko Petroleum Corp.  has announced plans to construct a 31-story office building next to its headquarters in The Woodlands to accommodate planned growth.

Anadarko (NYSE: APC) is beginning site work this week on the project, which will rise on land it already owns at the corner of Woodloch Forest Drive and Lake Robbins Drive. The building will have 21 floors with a total of 550,000 square feet of office space located above 10 levels of parking garage space, said John Christiansen, a company spokesman.

The building was designed by Gensler , and will be constructed by David E. Harvey Builders Inc.     Employees learned about the new structure last week.

Anadarko’s new 31-story building will have 21 floors of office space over 10 levels of parking garage space.

Anadarko’s existing tower in The Woodlands is 30-stories tall and has a total of 818,000 square feet of office space. The company also leases nearby office space, which will no longer be needed once the new building is complete in the spring of 2014.

“We’ll be able to bring them on the campus,” Christiansen said. “You create some business efficiencies when you’re able to get all of your employees in one place.”

Anadarko has more than 4,700 employees worldwide. Between 2,200 and 2,300 of those people work in The Woodlands. While the company continually adds employees, a estimation of the number of new hires is not available.

“I couldn’t speculate,” Christiansen said. “A lot of that is yet to be determined.”

The time is right to add new office space because of the company’s growth opportunities in shale plays and offshore natural gas, Christiansen said.
