  1. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/2014/11/tmc-outlines-potential-plans-for-new-research.html?ana=twt
  2. I discovered a cool Bio Technology company located near my neighborhood. The business is called Biotex, Inc. and here's a small blurb about their company: Biotex is a premier product development accelerator for new medical technology. In addition to our own product portfolio, we partner with entrepreneurs and early stage companies to provide product development, intellectual property guidance, regulatory strategy, and commercial manufacturing. Our team of designers and engineers transform ideas into incredible products that look and work fantastic! Biotex has secured over $15 million in federal and private grants to create a pipeline of exciting products, two of which were successfully commercialized through spin-off companies (Visualase, Inc. – recently acquired by Medtronic, and Base Pair BioTechnologies) and others which were licensed for commercialization by others. Today, we continue to innovate and partner with others to develop new and exciting medtech products. https://www.biotexmedical.com/ That area south of the TMC Hospital Campus has so much BioTech/Medical Manufacturing it's wild. All around Kirby, Fannin, West Bellfort, Willowbend, Buffalo Speedway, Holmes, etc.
  3. The one along Holly Hall crosses freight tracks owned by UP or Houston Belt & Terminal, but the frequency of trains is very low and almost never during the daytime. At night, small trains drop off and pick up cars at the Grocers Supply Co. distribution center on Holcombe, which is where the line currently ends, but that is the only user of the tracks of which I'm aware.
  4. Someone please tell me more about this project. This would be for the Texas Medical Center at the corner of Main & Holcombe, where the Bank of America building sits. http://www.slideshare.net/QingjingZuo/smilodon-rendering-collection-20154-47319504
  5. Lockmat discovered this development from a link that TheNiche posted in the "Dome over Houston" thread. Europa at Houstonian Lakes, a 500-acre master planned community. LandQuest development group (or L Star, they've recently partnered with Starwood development) is the developer. http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm99/YahTrickYah57/22.jpg http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm99/YahTrickYah57/23.jpg http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm99/YahTrickYah57/25.jpg http://www.enzoinv.com/brochure/brochure.htm (pg. 20-23)
  6. With the BioTech explosion happening in Houston right now I figured I would create a thread for the random updates with the latest news and happenings in the industry. I believe a year ago we were listed around the 7th emerging BioTech cluster. Last month I read a report that said we are the 2nd largest emerging cluster. Now, since the TMC BioPart development was made public, I wonder if that 500-acres and 100,000 jobs make us the largest emerging BioTech cluster. Looking forward to the future market reports.

  8. This place is gonna be huge. Also, what is a curtain-wall high-rise? http://www.bizjourna...-sets-huge.html http://www.generationpark.com/ Last year's info from Swamplot http://swamplot.com/...ark/2011-06-09/
  9. U.S. grants Lexicon $1.9 million for antiterrorism research By: BURTON SPEAKMAN, Villager staff 01/05/2005 Lexicon Genetics Incorporated (Nasdaq: LEXG) was awarded a $1.9 million grant for the discovery of drug targets that could provide resistance to ricin poisoning from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases for a one-year initial term. "Lexicon's proprietary gene knockout technology, coupled with our comprehensive system for analyzing the physiological effects of genes in mammals, can provide the Army with important information in its effort to combat the harmful effects of bioterrorism and biological warfare agents," said Arthur T. Sands, M.D., Ph.D., company president and chief executive officer. According to the Centers for Disease Control, ricin is a water-soluble poison made from the waste produced during the processing of the castor bean and can be produced in pellet, powder or mist form. The goal of the program is to ultimately identify target agents and to develop protective drugs, Sands said. Lexicon will complete the testing for 250 genes within the term the grant. Genes will be tested to evaluate their potential to block the body's reaction to ricin, he said. This technology does not work in the same manner as current treatments for either diseases or poisons. Current treatments work to eliminate toxins or infections from the body, Sands said. Drugs developed through this gene therapy will keep the toxin or infection from reacting with the agent it uses to damage the body. "Any agent - whether it be a poison or a virus - must use an agent to interact with the body," he said. Currently it is unclear what kind of reaction ricin produces that infects the body. Another advantage to gene treatment is that toxins and diseases can mutate, making current treatments invalid, Sands said. This would not be the case for drugs that affect the target agent. "Genes within the human body don't mutate," he said. "This could be the beginning of a whole new class of therapy." "We believe the methods we will be using to find host factors for ricin resistance could have broader applications for other toxins or infectious agents," Sands said. This is one of the initial steps that could bring the new therapeutic treatments to wider use, he added. The grant from the U.S. Army is the first grant that Lexicon Genetics has ever received, Sands said. Burton Speakman may be reached at bspeakman@mail.hcnonline.net.
  10. There is a sign up near the Bass Pro shops construction at the Spectrum exit off 288 showing the "Waterlight District" with a water taxi in the picture. Anyone know about this Woodlandsesque development?
  11. BioHouston engineers footprint for new biotech business park By Mary Ann Azevedo - Houston Business Journal - Aug 13, 2006 https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/stories/2006/08/14/story6.html Despite the underlying notion of dueling biotech parks, the planners behind a new biotech resource center and business park that was announced this week insist the venture will not compete with the nearby UT Research Park. BioHouston outlined plans this week for the new BioHouston Resource Center and Genesis Biotechnology Park, a conglomeration of office and lab space designed to assist start-up life science companies on the road to commercialization. The Houston-based organization plans to move its headquarters from the Houston Technology Center in Midtown to the new biotech park at 2555 Holly Hall near the intersection of El Rio, which is about a mile south of the Texas Medical Center. Sixteen life science companies already lease space in the six-building area, which will now be known as the Genesis Biotechnology Park, according to BioHouston President and CEO Jacqueline Northcut Waugh. Those companies include Introgen Therapeutics Inc., PLx Pharma Inc., Nanospectra Biosciences Inc. and ThromboVision Inc. Waugh says Genesis Biotechnology Park will not compete -- and will collaborate -- with the much-ballyhooed UT Research Park, a joint venture between The University of Texas M.D. Anderson and the UT Health Science Center at Houston that is also located in the Med Center. Waugh says the Genesis Park is more about creating a conglomeration of life science firms than building real estate from the ground up. The landlord of the six buildings that make up the park, Western General Holding Co., "gets the concept of biotechnology," says Waugh, and as such, has created a welcoming environment for life science start-ups.
  12. 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.
  13. Here is something recently mentioned on Swamplot. Does anyone know anything about this project? http://www.kirksey.com/project/buffalo_lakes_master_plan Page 10 of this PDF http://www.ridemetro.org/ProjectsPrograms/PDFs/90A_Media_Briefing_020711.pdf shows rail going through the project.
  14. I keep on seeing this Knight Road Loopnet listing so I decided to look on Google Satellite to see the industrial campus. I never knew this was here to be honest. I guess Stream Realty, or Stream Industrial is handling the leasing? Looks to be a total of 9 buildings situated between Knight Road & Almeda Road. I also see all that forest land. Some day that will be developed! Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/9051-9087-Knight-Rd-Houston-TX/11737768/
  15. Noticed this on JLL's website. This is outside of UT's 307-acres on Willowbend Blvd. The executive summary mentions it's a premium infill location. Also mentions TMC3 and Levit Green since TMC is only 3-miles away. Maybe long-term redevelopment? https://www.us.jll.com/en/investorcenter/industrial-logistics/willowbend-business-park-houston-tx-unitedstates
  16. swamplot reports: Anadarko Petroleum announced to its employees last week that the company is ready to begin constructing a second office tower just west of its existing headquarters building in The Woodlands Town Center, a source tells Swamplot. The new building will fit on the corner of Lake Robbins Dr. and Woodloch Forest Dr., just south of The Woodlands Mall, and like the current tower will be visible from miles south on I-45. At the announced 31 stories, the new structure would be one floor "shorter taller." http://swamplot.com/...rst/2012-01-17/ works for me!
  17. https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/economic-development/east-end-maker-space-taps-in-opportunity-zone-for-mayors-complete-communities-initiative-101858?utm_source=outbound_pub_4&utm_campaign=outbound_issue_33886&utm_content=outbound_link_1&utm_medium=email Interesting article about new developments for TXRX "East End Makers Hub" and "The Center for Pursuit". Looks like East End Makers Hub will be at 6501 Navigation and Center for Pursuit at 4400 Harrisburg.
  18. I pass by this small business park a lot but never stop by. I stopped by today, and the PMRG For Lease Sign has been there for a decade. Shouldn't Madison Marquette replace the sign? Out of all the light-industrial/lab space around Kirby and West Bellfort, this one is doing badly. I see lots of vacancy. Old Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/16296274/2525-West-Bellfort-Houston-TX/
  19. 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/
  20. Well that second quote is much more promising than the first (which I guess came from Alexandria Chairman Joel Marcus On Emerging Cities, Megacampuses And 'Hucksters' (bisnow.com)). If their market outlook did change between summer 2021 and now, well the TMC must be doing something right.
  21. 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.
  22. Formerly known as Main Link Biotechnology Park located at 10301 Stella Link Rd. I dropped by today and saw Clark Condon Associates and a BioTech company named Neurogene. Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/10301-Stella-Link-Rd-Houston-TX/18253590/
  23. I finally figured out the third Plaza del Oro complex today. RNR had a recent real estate transaction regarding the property. Thanks RNR! HOUSTON — John Hornbuckle of Cypressbrook Company represented the tenant, Nuo Therapeutics, Inc., in the leasing of 4,865 SF at 8285 El Rio Plaza in the Plaza del Oro Research Park. Lane Travis with CBRE represented the landlord, El Rio, LLC. https://realtynewsreport.com/rnr-real-estate-briefs-hou-aus-dal-more-5/ CBRE has 3 separate property listings for the campus. The addresses are: Building 1 is located at 900 South Loop West Building 2 is located at 8275 El Rio St. Building 3 is located at 8285 El Rio St. https://www.cbre.com/offices/corporate/houston/houston-property-search/details/US-SMPL-47242/plaza-del-oro-900-s-loop-w-900-south-loop-west-houston-tx-77054?view=isLetting%2CisSale https://www.cbre.com/offices/corporate/houston/houston-property-search/details/US-SMPL-47244/plaza-del-oro-8275-el-rio-8275-el-rio-street-houston-tx-77054?view=isLetting%2CisSale https://www.cbre.com/offices/corporate/houston/houston-property-search/details/US-SMPL-47246/plaza-del-oro-8285-el-rio-8285-el-rio-street-houston-tx-77054?view=isLetting%2CisSale I stopped by all three Plaza del Oro complexes last weekend. I would list them as: MD Anderson BioHouston complex: 8000 - 8080 El Rio St. Transwestern Prologis complex: 1000 South Loop West, 8272 El Rio St. and 8282 El Rio St. CBRE Research Park complex: 900 South Loop West, 8275 El Rio St. and 8285 El Rio St. Here's some street signage for the CBRE PDO complex.
  24. A new retail building is going up on West Bellfort. Lots of biotechnology companies around Kirby, West Bellfort, Willowbend, and Stella Link.
  25. Kirby Interchange is a 8-building Life Science Business Park located at the intersection of Kirby Dr. & W. Bellfort Ave. This is actually one of many BioTech campuses in the area. Hospitals serve the TMC proper, while the outskirts are filled with Pharmaceutical, Device Manufacturing, and BioTech companies. Here's the Transwestern leasing flyer. https://transwestern.com/property/kirby-interchange I stopped by this weekend and took a picture of the leasing signage. One or more of the buildings have an address of 8955 -8981 Interchange Dr.
