ExxonMobil Fights For Children, Against Public Housing
While St. Paul is trying to force ExxonMobil to sell an old tank farm as part of an ambitious plan for the largest housing development in the city's history, the company wants to ensure no homes will ever be built on its land. But here's the twist: ExxonMobil isn't trying to raise the value of the property by holding out. In fact, the company offered to donate the land if no housing ever occupied the site. City officials are baffled by the new tone of ExxonMobil's legal team: consumer advocate.
