  1. Does 1.5 million sq ft incorporate all buildings or just those reserved for the colleges? If I recall, they were going to leave open spots for industry players... Here's an older article that references "up to 5 million sq ft" of development: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/Houston-Medical-Center-redesigns-massive-TMC3-13809669.php
  2. On Medistar website now, includes a render from south heading north on Main. I'm personally pretty excited about the at-grade retail + green space...retail in particular is sorely lacking in the area. So now Medistar is not only developing this but they are also responsible for Intercontinental, Latitude, and Innovation Tower (assuming it happens)...plus will now own A&M's current plot across the street? Impressive.. I can see them and 7200 Main Corp (Coventry) being interested in the Shriners Hospital land https://www.medistarcorp.com/in-development/
  3. I think all we know at this point is that the secretive developer (same developer as Springwoods Village) has now acquired and cleared the parcels to replicate the footprint seen in the prior renderings. The renderings we originally saw were from HOK and part of a design competition several years ago... Some from Gensler have also floated around... From what I've read, they had to present development plans to get the fill & grade and water/waste water permits that have been issued over the past year or so. So something is in the works, but what exactly is anyone's guess. This is a hug
  4. Sorry for the quick follow-up, but obviously tearing up N Braeswood would indicate they were granted the request for street abandonment from a couple of years ago. I checked the Harris County Clerk's website to see if it showed up and just found something else interesting... For some background, I've always noticed that the "Main Place at Greenbriar" plat (owned by 7200 Main Corporation) ended at a strange angle at Main and Pressler, as shown below. However, in all of the 7200 Main renderings we saw a few years ago, there were buildings and development along Pressler as well:
  5. It was quiet for a few weeks but today I noticed they were in the process of tearing out that segment of N Braeswood Blvd... Also noticed some stakes so it appears things are still moving along
  6. Some news here... Heavy equipment is on site right now, clearing out the rest of the lot
  7. Can't wait to see this area in 5 years or so....this development, 7200 main, TMC3, new Medistar Tower...can't even imagine the added traffic but nice to see residential components in some of these. Anyway, I'm not sure if this is news or not, but apparently they are also selling the A&M Health Science Center at 2121 W. Holcombe.
  8. Easy enough to find on youtube, but here's the start of TMC3 discussion (only 22 views??):
  9. Glad I'm not the only one wondering...that wrecking ball seems ridiculously tiny. Maybe this is a needed step before imploding? I can't imagine them knocking down the entire thing this way...
  10. FWIW, that entire complex of townhomes is for sale... https://www.har.com/homedetail/1117-saint-agnes-st-a-houston-tx-77030/8668808
  11. Checking prior meeting agendas, this amount has increased throughout the year. $250 million in January, $325 million in April, etc... $625 million is such a significant amount, just seems weird there is nothing else out there about it
  12. Not much to report, but a couple of permits have been issued: PROJECT_NO PERMIT_DESC OWNER_OCCUPANT Address
  13. Haven’t included a pic from my phone before but hopefully this works - per the school’s website, they will be moving to an interim campus. This FB post mentions they will be listing several parcels with JLL but sounds like the new campus is proceeding. Also note the mention of developers who own current school “proceeding with development.” That’s 7200 Main. At this point could just mean demo of school but...who knows
