Aerial photos of the Exxon Mobil campus

The Exxon Mobil campus north of Houston is taking shape, and a good place get a look at what’s being developed is from above.

Aerial photos show multiple buildings and parking garages being framed on the 386-acre site west of Interstate 45 near the Hardy Toll Road.

It’s like a small downtown being built from scratch.

There are about 20 structures under construction by a workforce of 3,000, said company spokesman Patrick McGinn.

When it’s completed in mid-2015, the development will house 10,000 people. Employees are expected to start moving in early next year, McGinn said.
