  1. Houston Community College unveils disaster-mitigation initiative, plans $30M flood-simulation training center https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2022/04/26/houston-community-college-disaster-resiliency-plan.html Houston Community College's new Resiliency Initiative will include a $30 million flood-simulation center and a disaster mitigation curriculum to train first responders, businesses and community members to prepare for catastrophic events, the school announced April 26. This plan has been in the works for five years, since Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in 2017 and flooded 200,000 homes while causing $73.5 billion in property destruction and loss of output, HCC said. The focal point of the initiative is the $30 million Resiliency Operations Center, which will be a 5-acre training space on HCC's Northeast Campus near the East Freeway and 610 Loop. Engineering plans are slated to be complete in September, and construction is expected to last from 18 to 22 months.
  2. HCC Brays Oaks Campus located at 8855 W Bellfort Blvd. Nice looking building designed by Kirksey Architecture. https://www.hccs.edu/locations/southwest-college/brays-oaks-campus/ https://www.kirksey.com/portfolio/projects/houston-community-college-brays-oaks-new-campus-workforce-building
  3. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/neighborhood/katy/article/Start-in-Katy-finish-in-Katy-HCC-to-open-16185310.php#photo-21006032 Some walls are up, lots of dirt work done, can't see it getting any prettier based on the Chron story. Then again, I guess as long as it works, it's sufficient. Just wish they had shown a bit of imagination like the UH building several hundred meters away.

  5. Howdy all, This is my second post here, been lurking for a while. So, if this is a double post please forgive, I searched a bit but nothing turned up Houston Community College Central is constructing a few new buildings in the midtown area, and performing a much-needed renovation of the San Jacinto Memorial Building among others on the campus. The renovation seems to be throwing out parking space in exchange for a nice green space in front of SJAC. The most prominent new construction is the Learning Hub, which will house their technology and science classes. http://learning.cc.hccs.edu/future/ http://learning.cc.hccs.edu/future/future.swf In my opinion, the Learning Hub resembles an ice cube sitting on the historic SJAC building's front lawn. I have mixed feelings about it, and am questioning whether it fits in with the area. What are your thoughts and opinions on the construction? Are our bonds going to good use?
  6. Would anyone happen to know what they are going to build here? They own a huge amount of land whoever it is and they demolished several structures. Is it just going to be townhomes or a multi-family building perhaps? It's this entire piece of land Screenshot 2014-06-07 21.18.20 by marclongoria, on Flickr There are markers all over the place plus these small signs that have numbers on them such as "3621" in the picture below: 2014-06-07 16.40.14 by marclongoria, on Flickr 2014-06-07 16.41.16 by marclongoria, on Flickr EdIt: Okay, so it's apparently HHC Dorms: http://swamplot.com/hcc-is-planning-a-student-dorm-building-too-at-alabama-and-almeda/2014-05-15/ Here's the latest article from Houston Chron: http://www.chron.com/news/education/article/HCC-central-campus-considers-student-housing-5514472.php Do we have a thread for this already?
  7. Llewelyn-Davies Sahni to Lead Two Major Redevelopment Projects in Houston’s Midtown District Projects will make area around HCC Central Campus an urban focal point HOUSTON, TX (May 25, 2011) – Llewelyn-Davies Sahni (LDS), a leading architecture and urban design firm in Houston continues to lead two redevelopment / upgrade projects for Midtown TIRZ and Houston Community College in Houston’s historic Midtown District. The projects will include approximately 90 block fronts in and around the HCC Central Campus, major open space redevelopment program in and around the existing campus and construction of a major plaza in the foreground of the campus’s San Jacinto Building. “The work to be done is a significant part of the revitalization of Houston’s Midtown, and it will dramatically change the campus ambience at HCC Central campus,” said Randhir Sahni, president of Llewelyn-Davies Sahni. “The new look and new features will provide a sense of place with a sense of arrival, and become a destination for visitors and residents.” The Star Plaza, a magnificent outdoor area and perhaps the crown jewel of this redevelopment project, will be located on the HCC Central Campus adjacent to the San Jacinto Building currently under renovation. It represents Houston’s commitment to education, as the San Jacinto Building was the birthplace of the University of Houston, HISD and HCC. The new Plaza will include a replica of the San Jacinto Monument as the visual focus of a planned Star of Texas. In January 2011, HCC Board funded the redevelopment of the historic San Jacinto Building. The Star Plaza improvements will complement 90 block-front improvements on blocks adjacent to the campus and will visually reinforce the focal architecture qualities of the San Jacinto Building. The Central College campus of the HCC System is the largest landholding entity in Midtown Houston and has the largest international student enrollment of any community college system in the nation. The Central Campus—the first in the HCC System—spans 16 city blocks in the physical core of Midtown. These improvements will enhance as well as provide for the needed community open space and should stimulate neighborhood redevelopment. Establishing a destination for Houstonians may also bolster commerce in Midtown, and help revitalize the area while serving the needs of the HCC District and the students. Inspiration for this redevelopment concept was drawn from various world-renowned urban spaces which served as examples of how best to exploit street amenities and manage ground plane treatment while providing a superior educational experience. The Plaza will be the “lung” of Midtown and potentially inspire quality private physical redevelopment. Improvement plans to be implemented along Caroline, Holman and Alabama Streets will be funded by Midtown TIRZ by use of tax dollars. Improvements include upgrading the area from the back of the street curbs to the ROW line with features such as new trees, ground cover, new hardscape, signage, lighting and street amenities such as benches, trash receptacles, bicycle racks, banners, and other support infrastructure. Work on the $20 million project is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2011. Major improvements are targeted to be completed by 2014.
  8. Per Carroll Robinson's website at the link below, on November 5th, HCC closed on 9.177 acres of land on N. MacGregor at 288 for the new Coleman College of Health Sciences’ Medical Science & Technology Early College Charter High School (what a long name!). http://tinyurl.com/ld5l5md That parcel has been vacant for over 20 years. I think the last thing to be there was an old nightclub, and before that, there were apartments. Old N. MacGregor Way borders the property to the south and was closed and fenced off about 3-5 years ago. It's also one of the few places where you can see Brays Bayou's original path before it was straightened for the first time in the 1920s.
  9. Title says it all, basically what's up @ Beltway 8 & I-10 behind the old Petsmart? There's an new building with a strange round structure in front of it, almost like a stylized deck or something? Anyone know what that new building is going to be?
  10. I haven't noticed that. I know that HCC was talking of expanding the northwest campus, in that direction, at one time.
  11. Is this the same location? I'm not sure. And I did not realize the project was going to be THIS BIG. source: http://www.bisnow.co...tory.php?p=8198 http://www.theldnet.com/details.php?project=HCC%20Central
  12. does anyone know what project is going on at this location? Yesterday construction was already on a second floor slab of cement.
  13. A lot of medical supply and some research firms are going into flex space in Fannin Opus Centre and other developments south of the 610 Loop. They aren't highly visible, nor are they among the 45 non-profit/government member institutions that comprise the Texas Medical Center, but they are an outgrowth of it.
  14. <rant> I have been pondering changing careers over the past few months, while making my own hours(days,weeks,months) is grand and the money pretty good, I like the consistency of having a regular paycheck and bennies. My goal is to learn advanced/technical spanish for translating in the medical center. From there, I intend on learning either Manderin, italian, along with some other languages for the same reasons. I've been having some serious roadblocks: The damned college hasn't called me back after repeated attempts over the past 3 weeks and its getting on my nerves. Makes me seriously reconsider doing this and seeing if I can do it without a proper certification, but that would hurt my cred (particularly having a hispanic last name) if I don't know how to say "colonoscopy" and say "endoscopy" or vica versa. </rant> I find myself in Red's position in debating whether I truly want the freedom of working the hours that I want (ranging from 20 hours to 80 hours weekly, depending on business), to a relatively steady 40.
