Exxon Mobil places Fairfax, Va. campus up for sale
FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - One of northern Virginia's largest employers, Exxon Mobil, is putting its Fairfax County property up for sale.
The Washington Post reports Exxon Mobil is taking the next step in moving its domestic refining headquarters to Houston. Executives are working to move 2,100 positions and vacate its woodsy Fairfax campus by the end of 2015.
Mobil Corp. moved its refining and marketing operations to Fairfax in 1980, based at the intersection of the Capital Beltway and Route 50. The company merged with Exxon in 1999.
The corporate property includes four office buildings surrounded by trees on all sides. The offices total 1.2 million square feet, including 60 conference rooms, a cafeteria, gym and swimming pool. Most of the 2,580 parking spaces are buried underground, along with a quarter-mile service tunnel.
