  1. We didn't have a thread for this campus and building. Within time the surface lot will developed. The building's address is 1977 Butler Blvd.
  2. Building signage says this is a collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine. The Neurosensory Center of Houston located at 6501 Fannin St. There is a planned skybridge on the outside of this building.
  3. https://www.newquest.com/property/weslayan-shopping-center/
  4. Some people were talking in another thread about the current "arms race" going on amongst major universities. Some of us are fresh out of college (or maybe still in school) who have seen the arms race first hand, others are older and have watched from a different perspective as their alma mater jumped into this ongoing competition for the finest facilities. What are everyones feelings on the arms race? Is it good for the schools? Which Texas school is winning this race?
  5. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/2014/11/tmc-outlines-potential-plans-for-new-research.html?ana=twt
  6. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/money-makers/2014/10/baylor-university-scouts-downtown-houston-to-house.html Waco, Texas-based Baylor University is scouting downtown real estate in Houston to house the expansion of its master's program in social work, said Diana Garland, dean of the school of social work at Baylor.
  7. It looks pretty sweet and I hope it gets built. Designed by Populous http://baylorlariat.com/2012/01/31/stadium-contractor-confusion-cleared/
  8. In case your in the med center area and wandering what the commotion is about, they supposedly have the prisoner escapee cornered at the Baylor Clinic 6620 Main. They have Main St. shut down.

  10. I was walking to the TMC commons yesterday when I noticed that the fenced in area next to the Methodist Research Center construction site said "Texas Heart Institute Phase 1 Expansion". Anybody have any info on this? It's right next to the current THI building - between it and the Methodist Research construction.
  11. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6083117.html "Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine have begun holding serious discussions that could lead to a merger of the state's top private university and one of the country's best medical schools. A merger would bring Rice the reputational enhancement it has long desired and Baylor the security of a university affiliation, which is often necessary to keep medical schools afloat financially. Baylor is one of only nine stand-alone medical schools in the United States."
  12. From the Chron: Dr. Feigin made city a major player in pediatric medicine Dr. Ralph Feigin, who transformed Houston into one of the nation's premier centers of pediatric care, died Wednesday. He was 70. A tireless advocate for children's health in Houston and worldwide, he grew Baylor College of Medicine pediatrics from a small, barely funded department into the nation's biggest and best funded, made Texas Children's Hospital one of the nation's elite children's hospitals and trained almost half of Harris County's current population of pediatricians. Mrs. Porchman frequently commented on how remarkably energetic and very kind Dr. Feigin was. She loved his brown bag sessions when he was President at BCM.
  13. The building by BCM Jewish Bldg is Baylor's new Alkek research building. The tall building being built by MD Anderson is the new MD anderson faculty building. Also, there is a new 12 story medical/surgical outpatient building being constructed on holcomb, near main, with two large cranes put up.
  14. The highly visible plot of land on Rice's campus on the corner of Main St and University Blvd. will house The Collaborative Research Center. Designed to be LEED certified by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, the tower will contain 477,000 square feet for class/lab space for bioscience and biotech research. Rice will operate the center in conjunction with Baylor, MD Anderson, UT Health Science, Texas Children's and a host of other TMC institutions. The building will have 3 levels of underground parking and 10,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space that faces Main St. Plans call for the design to allow for the addition of another tower on top of this one and another on adjacent land...
  15. Parkwood is at OST and Cambridge, just west of the VA Hospital. I understand that it's owned by Baylor, and is a large brick garden apartment complex with over 100 live oaks on the property, hardwoods, good square footage, and very reasonable rents (try $690 for 1233 sq. ft. 2 BR + den apt.) Most of the residents work in the Med Center, obviously. Many of them are post-docs and researchers, lots of Asian families. Lots of the families planted gardens there. Residents were given notice on September 1 to vacate by November 1. It's going to be demolished. Anybody know the history of this place? I think it was built around 1948. Who designed it? What's going up instead? I assume all the live oaks are history, they are already cutting them down on the VA's eastern border. If you want any free landscaping (crepe myrtles, wisteria, rubber trees, etc. ), now's the time to dig 'em up. Any good suggestions for apartment alternatives in the area?
  16. In 1946-47 a study was conducted that concluded the following 10 institutions as members that make up TMC: 1. Baylor University College of Medicine 2. University of Texas Dental Branch 3. University of Texas School of Public Health 4. University of Texas Post-Graduate Medical School 5. M.D. Anderson Hospital for Cancer Research 6. Herman Hospital 7. Methodist Hospital 8. St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital 9. Tuberculosis Hospital 10. Medical Library of Houston Academy of Medicine Given the passage of almost 6 decades how many more institutions would you thank have become members & would the old TB hospital still be active or changed names and mission today?
  17. Does anyone have any memories from times in University/College? Any strange acts of vandalism or teenage stupidity? Any tips on how to stay in college? My sister is coming back from DePauw University (in Greencastle, Indiana) for Thanksgiving. She just graduated from Lamar High in Houston last May. She says that at DePauw a bunch of kids vandalized a deer statue donated by an alumn by making a failed attempt to saw off its legs. Then some kids rode the statue in the nude during Halloween.
  18. I took these before I left yesterday. It was a nice walk home through the park. Built (completed) 1948. Recently cleaned.
