  1. 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.
  2. Easy enough to find on youtube, but here's the start of TMC3 discussion (only 22 views??):
  3. 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...
  4. FWIW, that entire complex of townhomes is for sale... https://www.har.com/homedetail/1117-saint-agnes-st-a-houston-tx-77030/8668808
  5. 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
  6. Thanks, was having a hard time searching for some reason
  7. Not much to report, but a couple of permits have been issued: PROJECT_NO PERMIT_DESC OWNER_OCCUPANT Address PROJECT_DESC CURRENT_VALUATION PERMIT_TYPE 18098972 Plan Review Fee *KEITH SIMON, 7200 MAIN CORPORATION 7200 MAIN ST 77030 SITEWORK: FILL & GRADE, STORM DRAINAGE 2012 IBC 0 PX 19085302 WW Utility Admin *KEITH SIMON, 7200 MAIN CORPORATION 7200 MAIN ST 77030 WATER/WASTE WATER APPLICATION (00030610) REVIEW 0 WT The fill & grade permit was approved on 7/3/19, and the water/waste water application was submitted on 7/17/2019. Not thrilling but at least some activity... For such permits to be issued/approved, would they require an actual plan for development? I've wondered what impacts the post-Harvey flood regulations may have on this property, and noticed that the fill&grade permit was submitted just before they took effect. The thread on the Holcombe & Main Property got me curious on this one again
  8. 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
  9. Google streetview supports this - the panels were there in March 2008 and gone in September 2009, so Ike was the likely culprit.
  10. Those missing sections of facade in your last shot there have always (well, for at least the last 6 years I've lived in area) been missing. It looks like the offsetting slabs were reinforced at some point, so I've always wondered just how secure it all is... FWIW, the article below indicates they are renovating the building: https://tees.tamu.edu/news/2018/04/06/enmed-program-obtains-lcme-approval-to-move-forward/

  12. FWIW, property is fenced off and apparently some pretty serious demo work going on (Precision Demolition). Unclear if this is going to impact the exterior, but at night it's pretty evident they are doing extensive gutting
  13. I'll grab a shot at night when I can - the lighting is quite nice. I'm sure it's got a great view from upper floors
  14. I’ve been seeing this on my neighborhood walks but could never find anything on FAA site in regards to height. A pleasant surprise on the size edit: 8 out of 14 floors for parking seems odd for an office
