The way it was explained to me is that the only thing paused in Dallas is the finish out of the space inside the building already built. The new building being built for Uber is still going up as usual as seen on camera.

Will Uber ride off to Dallas with its headquarters?

As cost-cutting pressures mount, speculation intensifies that Uber could move its San Francisco headquarters to lower-cost Dallas.

Two weeks after cutting 3,700 jobs, Uber slashes another 3,000, closes an SF office
https://www.sfgate.com/news/editorspicks/article/Uber-job-cuts-layoffs-offices-closed-15278127.php

The 6,700 jobs are equal to 25% of the San Francisco-based company's global work force. Uber is also shutting or consolidating 40 offices around the world; its Pier 70 office in San Francisco is set to close.


Uber Lays Off Another 3,000 Workers, Bringing This Round to 6,700
Uber is reportedly still moving ahead to consolidate workers into its swanky new offices in Mission Bay, adjacent to the Chase Center. But 500 workers who have been in offices on Pier 70 nearby will be moving in first as the company says it will close that office entirely

As of May 12, Uber had only indicated that 52 of its initially announced 3,700 job cuts were in the Bay Area

The pier 70 offices look amazing. But before the covid-19 lockdown, google was in talks to lease 1.5 million square feet of office space there, on top of the 1.9 million they currently lease in San Francisco alone.

^That's a nice plan, thanks for sharing. Always like to see what other cities have planned.

Anyone have any intel on what is being fabricated in the sub basement of this building. It appears to be perhaps a filtering process or some sort of special need that Uber has designated. :idea: ?

On the Agenda: Tapping the ‘breaks’ on Uber

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... allas.html

Uber has now requested that the initial 2023 effective date be changed to 2025, that the initial job creation requirement of 2,500 new jobs be changed to 1,000, and that a job creation schedule now be used to determine the number of jobs that have to be created after 2025.

Since the total number of jobs that will be created and exist during the abatement’s 10-year period will have been reduced by about 20 percent, the county staff made a corresponding reduction in the business personal property abatement for those years that would now have a lower requirement than what was previously in place.

Uber would not receive the original 90 percent BPP abatement until the original 3,000 job level has been met.

That's pretty significant, but I suppose I'm not surprised. I really hope that this plan is now realistic for them even given the circumstances and they are able to stick to it. I'd really hate to see this fall through.
