As the economy starts to really get back on track in 2021, I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot more relocations to Texas and the DFW area.

Abbott: Stock exchange coalition ‘impressed’ in visit to Texas Governor’s Mansion

By Dom DiFurio

5:55 PM on Nov 20, 2020 CST
The group meeting with Abbott calls itself the Coalition To Prevent the Taxing of Retirement Savings. It includes Nasdaq, CBOE Global Markets, Citadel Securities, data center operator Equinix, IEX, Members Exchange, New York Stock Exchange owner Intercontinental Exchange, TD Ameritrade Holding Corp., Virtu Financial and UBS.
Abbott said the exchanges are eyeing Dallas-Fort Worth for a potential move.
The state’s abundance of renewable energy, its independent power grid and cheap cost for electricity compared to New Jersey were discussed with the group, Abbott said. Tech giants Facebook and Google have already seized on the Texas power advantage, having invested in large data centers in North Texas recently.

To be clear, these stock exchanges would still be headquartered in New York, it's the electronic trading infrastructure that would relocate... data centers.

Isn't there something about the wiring in the Design District that makes it a very desirable location for heavy users of electricity and speed of electronic transactions?

Rewilding the Trinity River Park will be so much nicer if the powerlines were below ground, so how about we bundle some projects... upgrade the electricity delivery infrastructure (including an array of those fancy new batteries) all through downtown to Regal Row, putting it below grade. The reliable availability of high volume electricity will bring more heavy usering customers like the stock exchanges... removing the powerlines will make the Park that much nicer.

The imitative to bank the renewable energy will incent those kinds of companies to Dallas, too.

Why are these relocations to Austin great news for Dallas-Fort Worth? From a distance, the two areas appear to be one in the same. There is a growing symbiosis between Austin and Dallas - Fort Worth just as a symbiotic relationship exists pertaining to the aerospace industry in both Fort Worth and Witchita, Kansas and in areas between them.

Amid California exodus, will Wells Fargo, Uber or Chevron’s headquarters be next to go?

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... or-ch.html

There’s a short list of companies that already seem to have one foot out the door — whether it’s Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), with its CEO based in New York, or Chevron (NYSE: CVX) employing more people in Houston than it does in the Bay Area.

The Bay Area’s Fortune 500 companies often reiterate their commitment to the region — until one day unveiling plans to move their headquarters out of state. Such was the case with Irving-based McKesson (NYSE: MCK), which told the San Francisco Business Times on Nov. 8, 2018, that its headquarters is in San Francisco. Three weeks later, McKesson disclosed that its headquarters was headed to Texas.

I've driven by the new HQ a number of times... It's actually a pretty impressive campus that they've built! Not sure the location is attractive for young working professionals, but for employees relocating with families it's pretty solid. I think Westlake, Southlake, Colleyville & Grapevine all have a lot to offer for those moving down from SF.
