  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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/
  7. 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/
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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/
  13. 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.
  14. A new retail building is going up on West Bellfort. Lots of biotechnology companies around Kirby, West Bellfort, Willowbend, and Stella Link.
  15. 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.
  16. Another BioTech campus just outside TMC proper is on El Rio street developed by Prologis. Transwestern has 3 separate property listings for the campus. The addresses are: Prologis Plaza del Oro 1 is located at 1000 S. Loop West. Prologis Plaza del Oro 2 is located at 8272 El Rio St. Prologis Plaza del Oro 3 is located at 8282 El Rio St. https://transwestern.com/property/plaza-del-oro https://transwestern.com/property/plaza-del-oro-3 https://transwestern.com/property/plaza-del-oro-00 I stopped by this weekend to check the neighborhood out. I took pictures of the street signage.
  17. I've been wanting to see the Anderson labs on El Rio. Stopped by this weekend to take photos. From what I can tell the addresses are 8000 - 8080 El Rio Street. There are several multi-building warehouse campuses on El Rio street. One is MD Anderson's, the other is a ProLogis development, and the other is TBD (haven't researched far enough.) The El Rio buildings are BioTech labs hosting lots of pharmaceutical companies. The whole area outside of TMC proper is medical-relating real estate. W. Bellfort, Fannin, Kirby, Willowbend, and El Rio is just a few streets that are populated with BioTech.
  18. Main Park is a three-building office/warehouse complex located near the Texas Medical Center at 3610-3620 Willowbend Blvd & 11205 South Main St. https://www.fullertx.com/properties/main-park/
  19. 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.
  20. I've been watching this for a few months. Been meaning to make a thread. https://transwestern.com/property/8515-fannin-street
  21. A couple years ago, the Towers Motor Hotel at 2130 W. Holcombe was demolished to make way for a Metrontario development called the Life Science Plaza. Metrontario's site gives this information: "This project is currently in the pre-construction phase, with over 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters) already leased" Does anyone know if this is current, or if there is any newer information on this project? This is the sign on holcombe (pre-demolition, but it is still there)
  22. 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...
  23. 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?
