  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. Does anyone remember (or have pictures) of the old Medical Arts Building downtown (circa 1929), just north of Houston Center? As I recall, it was an early Art Deco skyscraper. When I saw it in the early 80s it was filthy and neglected, but the design and detail were memorable. It can be seen in the upper part of the photo, while under demolition: Anyone have a better picture or any info? It was quite an attractive building.
  4. Never knew about the BCM schools around town. Here's another one located in third ward. https://www.houstonisd.org/domain/40476 Students will have the opportunity to earn high school credits, explore pathways in health and biomedical science, and become ready for challenging high school academic programs.
  5. Awesome looking school. https://www.houstonisd.org/domain/46312 Vision Statement: Every student will engage in a rigorous and integrative health science curriculum guiding them to make innovative 21st century contributions. Mission Statement: In order to prepare students for the careers of tomorrow, we will provide them with engaging health science experiences through cooperative learning and technological integration.
  6. A 3-story office building with office & retail for Eado is currently on the agenda, renderings included.
  7. 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.
  8. Not much really, but there is a crane. http://www.kelsey-seybold.com/newsroom/pages/main-campus-undergoes-expansion-to-enhance-cancer-care-and-collaboration.aspx#.U4vSdyi9Zaw http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2014/03/kelsey-seybold-clinic-to-expand-main-campus-to.html IMAG0028 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMAG0027 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr
  9. This is the shopping center with Memorial Hermann and CHI St. Lukes at the intersection of Braeswood & Kirby. I had dinner here at Morningstar Thai. Great food and prices, but no alcohol.
  10. These buildings were once the highlight of Upper Kirby. I still love them and think they're a great addition. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3701-3801-Kirby-2401-Portsmouth-Houston-TX/23544395/
  11. This is a $1.5B 2,000 acre mixed use development at the intersection of GP & FM 1464: http://www.globest.com/news/908_908/houston/160716-1.html
  12. On Tuesday, March 21st, 2006, KinkaidAlum posted: "The antenna at One Shell Plaza reaches to around 1,000 feet. There are several photos on emporis.com that show the antenna to reach almost the exact same height as Wells Fargo. The one building that has always confused me is the St Luke's Medical Tower. It's official height is listed at 316 feet. Apparently, the needle spires aren't counted in the height, but even without them, 316 feet seems way too short. Especially when you consider that the nearby Marriott Hotel is listed at 265 feet. There's NO WAY St Luke's is only 51 feet taller than the Marriott even without the spires!" I checked this out from multiple angles tonight. The question is not whether or not St Luke's is over 316 feet; it is whether or not (including spires) it is under or over 440'. With the spires I am certain that it is no shorter than the recent Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza. Edit: skyscraperpage and E______ both quote 316/25st., but Baylor College of Medicine says 29 storeys. The architect's website doesn't indicate one way or the other, saying only, "The Tower is a sophisticated, state-of-the-art medical facility and teaching hospital which captures the spirit and character of Houston and the adjacent Texas Medical Center. Twin octagonal towers respond to this dual frontage and help define the urban environment. The circular roofs and spires bring each tower to a dynamic terminus." There's a nice picture, though, of St Luke's as the only building visible from Hermann Park. A much more personable presence than the hulking Memorial Hermann.
  13. 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.
  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. 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.
  16. I took these before I left yesterday. It was a nice walk home through the park. Built (completed) 1948. Recently cleaned.
  17. It looks pretty sweet and I hope it gets built. Designed by Populous http://baylorlariat.com/2012/01/31/stadium-contractor-confusion-cleared/
  18. 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?
  19. 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.

  21. There's a new construction site on the 3200 block of Moursund. Does anyone know any information on what is being built? It's next to the Dental School and across from Baylor College of Medicine's "new" Alkek building (2007).
  22. 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."
