6 responses to “AT&T Relocation: The Price Of Doing Business”

  1. Tom says:

    No objection here. I’d rather be doing that than buying overvalued parking lots for city-owned hotels.

  2. Patrick says:

    Sounds good to me, I’m on board! This is a great grab for the City- now we just need to convince them to stay put!

  3. No objection. We should work to make sure that they buy homes in Dallas, and hopefully they’ll take some of these condos off of the market.

    Relos like this help the economy in many ways.

  4. John M says:

    I would have liked to see a bit of a longer term deal and some incentives for them to move their mobility division down here.

    I believe that AT&T Mobility will move down here when their commitment to Atlanta is done, it just makes too much sense with their major suppliers US headquarters or large offices in the area (Nokia, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens) along with their parent company’s headquarters. My big concern is that AT&T will decide to build a big flashy new headquarters in the suburbs.

  5. Wes Mantooth says:

    Doesn’t it seem odd that the city is givin 10-year exemptions and grants but requiring only a 5-year commitment? Why not quid pro quo?

  6. Joe M says:

    They’re not likely to build in the suburbs since the downtown buildings are AT&T property, not leased. If anything, they might be inclined to move people from the suburban leased buildings into the downtown space once the leases are up.

    This is definitely a good for Dallas.
