  1. Today I stopped by an older Life Science office strip park on West Bellfort. I always pass by here but never stop. Transwestern website: https://transwestern.com/property/2575-w-bellfort-st Loopnet: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/2575-W-Bellfort-St-Houston-TX/4018395/
  2. Looking for more information regarding UTHealth's John H. Freeman Building. From what I can tell the building was under construction in August 1971 and demolished in March 2005. Who was the architect? Does anyone have any photos of the now demolished building? Thanks. https://med.uth.edu/historical-milestones/ August 1971 John H. Freeman Building construction begins. March 2005 Demolition of the John Freeman Building begins to make way for the six-story Replacement Research Facility.
  3. I was reading about MacKie and Kamrath and noticed they designed this building in 1975. The address is 1200 Pressler St, Houston, TX 77030.
  4. Vaughn Construction using a tower crane to build this.
  5. This is down the street from METRO's Fannin Station. The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston has 3.7383 acres for ground lease at the intersection of Cross Point Road and Center Point Road in Houston just south of the former Astroworld site. The 3.7383 acres are available for long-term ground lease. https://www.utsystem.edu/offices/real-estate/property/37383-acres-at-cross-point-avenue CrosspointSurvey.pdf
  6. The University Center Tower was built in 1975 and commands a highly visible position close to the Texas Medical Center. The twenty-five stories of the facility house a variety of University academic and administrative functions while also providing lease space to a variety of tenants. https://www.uth.edu/index/maps/inside/uct.htm
  7. Anyone remember details about this? I was trying to see if there were any concept renderings. This was going to be located to where the (now) the UT Research Park Complex is. All the TMC players were involved. This was the original TMC3 if you will. This project was proposed in 2001. I'll post a few articles for reference.
  8. This is a few years old. Cool stuff. Looking forward to the UTHealth C3. https://www.uth.edu/dotAsset/00faa8de-2abb-467d-ba79-45ed3741b6a6.docx

  10. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2018/01/09/state-approves-initial-funding-for-uthealth.html Site is just outside the TMC: https://www.google.com/maps/place/2800+S+MacGregor+Way,+Houston,+TX+77021/@29.7115275,-95.3746963,3a,75y,279.77h,93.05t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sU2JfaN4iiyYPnKes4n3MAQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x8640bf97b4082a43:0xd01096f0aebe7d01!8m2!3d29.7122117!4d-95.3743252
  11. Dear Students, Colleagues and Friends, This is a defining moment in the history of UTHealth. At 10 a.m. this morning, the John P. McGovern Foundation announced a transformational $75 million gift to our Medical School and McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics. Through 14 separate endowments, this gift will help us bolster medical training, will provide full scholarships to outstanding students and will support scientific discovery and innovation. The gift will also enhance programs at the McGovern Center, which was established in 2004 with another generous donation from the McGovern Foundation. Dr. McGovern embraced the philosophy of Sir William Osler, M.D., whose approach included patient-centered, compassionate care and appreciation of medical history and the humanities. The center serves all six of the university’s schools. In honor of the largest gift in our history, and the principles modeled by this great physician and his wife, UTHealth Medical School will be renamed theJohn P. and Kathrine G. McGovern Medical School. The formal short name will be the McGovern Medical School.

  14. MD Anderson George And Cynthia Mitchell Basic Sciences Research Building At 6767 Bertner Ave. The building is home to the MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. https://gsbs.uth.edu/
  15. UTHealth University Housing At 7900 Cambridge St. Early rendering and story from the HouTexan magazine, Volume 2, Number 8, June 1981. HouTexan is the official magazine of The University of Texas Health Science Center back in the day.
  16. Response from Planning Commission: Kroger is expanding its existing Kroger store. Centro Properties (the owner of the shopping center) is also demolishing a portion of the existing shopping center adjacent to the new Kroger expansion for a new tenant . The reason for platting is because Centro Properties is purchasing the existing gas station at the corner of 11th Street and N. Shepard Drive and will demolish the gas station so Krogers can construct a new gas station that encompass a portion of the two tracts. Therefore platting both unplatted tracts into one unrestricted reserve.
  17. The UT Physicians Tower, Hermann Professional Building is my favorite (well ... the crown at least). Also, on the waterfall ... was it designed by the same folks that did the design of the Hines Tower waterfall?
  18. UTHealth School of Allied Health Sciences At 7000 Fannin St. The UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics began in 1973 as the University of Texas School of Allied Health Sciences. It provided certificate programs in technical arenas to post-bachelor’s students. Disciplines included biomedical communications (audiovisual production in the context of the health sciences); nutrition and dietetics; blood bank technology; histotechnology (preparation of tissue sample slides for examination by pathologists.) https://archives.library.tmc.edu/university-of-texas-school-of-allied-health-sciences
  19. Link to article. Wow, not only am I getting a 1.1-million-square-foot teaching hospital within walking distance of my condo and a connection to N. Macgregor via Cambridge, but I'm also getting a 315,000-square-foot facility just down the street! I was hoping for more verticality, but I can live with it.
  20. Top one might by the UT Health Science Center's new Fayez Sarofim building. Not 100% on that. With regards to the Canal Place photos, looks like the same thing to me.
  21. 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?
  22. Mandated by the owner to be a flagship of sustainable design, criteria called for the project to: achieve a LEED Gold or Platinum rating and that half of its materials be of recycled content; reflect in its design the professional values of the user group; operate with less than 70 percent of the energy used by the adjacent School of Public Health; and not exceed by more than five percent the design and construction budget of a similar University of Texas System project. The mechanical system also contributes significantly to the building's energy efficiency by delivering conditioned air from a raised floor instead of the ceiling, thus cooling primarily the occupant zone rather than the space overhead. Air is moved in large quantities but at low speeds to reduce noise levels and friction, thereby decreasing internal heat gain. Operable grilles set in the floor allow individual occupants to manage air flow as desired. In addition, demountable office partitions and the sub-floor air conditioning system provide long-term flexibility by allowing reconfiguration of the office areas as needed. So far, operating costs have averaged less than 60 percent of that for the adjacent School of Public Health.
  23. Associated Press The University of Texas Health Science Center has received $5 million for cardiovascular stem cell research, the institution announced today. The gift will be split evenly between the health science center and the Texas Heart Institute to establish stem cell research endowments. Dr. James T. Willerson, president of the health science center, said the gift would help broaden basic stem cell research as well as develop treatment efforts for patients with coronary artery disease and severe heart failure. UT-Houston received a separate $25 million gift for stem cell research last year, making it the state's leader in that research field. UT-Houston is the only institution at the Texas Medical Center working with stem cells derived from human embryos from the existing cell lines approved by the federal government. Stem cells, which can come from adults and donated embryos, could potentially be used to repair spinal cord injuries and reverse effects of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. But research involving destruction of human embryos has generated heated debate over possibilities of stellar medical breakthroughs versus immoral or unethical sacrifice of embryos for studies that may or may not produce results. In 2001, President Bush restricted use of federal money on embryonic stem cell research to existing lines. Privately funded research is ongoing. Willerson and Dr. Emerson Perin, director of new interventional cardiovascular technology at the Texas Heart Institute, lead one of the first FDA-approved clinical trials to treat end-stage heart disease patients using stem cells derived from their own bone marrow. "Through our investigations, we hope to make a significant contribution in the battle to transform the future of medicine and to prevent and conquer cardiovascular disease," Willerson said. Link
