A rumor is circulating in our workplace that XTO Energy has purchased the Oil & Gas Building. Has anyone on this forum heard something similar?

I am not familiar with the "Oil and Gas Building". That is not the same as the "Petroleum Building" on Throckmorton that XTO bought 6 years ago, right?

Correct not the same, the Oil & Gas Building is at the corner of 7th and Taylor. It shares a common entrance off 7th with the adjacent Commerce Building. The lobby of the Oil & Gas Building is home to the Trinity River Vision project.

The Trinity River Vision office is in the Commerce Building, not the Oil & Gas. If this is true, and XTO did not purchase the Commerce Building, then I guess the lobbies would have to be separated again.

Thank you Mr. Roberts. I always get the two switched in my mind for some reason. The completely unverified rumor only sites the Oil & Gas Building

I wouldn't count this as verification, but I asked a friend of mine who would know with certainty if the building had been sold or not. He asked me where I heard about it. We talked about XTO's other purchases downtown. After a while I said, "by the way, you didn't answer my question". He just smiled and turned away.

I smell a pending sale.
