  1. 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.
  2. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Institutional Facilities Master Planning Services - MP2030/JSW https://www4.mdanderson.org/procurement/bids/index.cfm?pagename=viewBid&id=6398&name=Request for Qualification&historic=yes
  3. I've always wanted to take a photograph of this building. Finally did today! F. O'Neil "Neil" Griffin Conference and Education Center located at 7455 Fannin St. along Knight Road. This building is apart of the UT Research Park Complex.
  4. I didn't see any other threads referring to this project nor could I find anything about it elsewhere... At any rate, I saw this sign earlier in the afternoon. I wasn't sure of the intersection (I think it's Braeswood @ Cecil, and there's a traffic light there) but it is just east of Fannin in the "new" south side of the TMC. Here's a photo of the sign w/ rendering. Pardon the quality, but it's fun to try shooting at a red light and at an odd angle nearly into the sun. Guessing 24-26 floors?
  5. MD Anderson Cancer Center - Visitor Parking Garage, 6900 Fannin St, Houston, TX 77030
  6. I've always wondered about this building. It's a medical office building located at 6655 Travis Street in the TMC. MD Anderson has a suite located inside of the building. HTA Development acquired the property recently too. HTA Development has been grabbing a lot of medical buildings in the Houston area as of late. While reading the Loopnet listing I noticed there is major capital improvements planned in 2022. Apparently it's connected to the Hilton Hotel next door. Very cool! https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/6655-Travis-St-Houston-TX/24019396/
  7. I was looking at an MD Anderson map and noticed they own this building. I drove by and surely enough there was an Anderson no trespassing sign. This building is down the street from TMC3. I can see MDA buying an adjoining parcel and building something tall here. In due time!
  8. I always pass by this building. Apparently it's houses a small MD Anderson clinic called Life Support Training Center. Photos taken this weekend.
  9. I remember reading an old MDA master plan that said the ROC building at Braeswood & Holcombe will eventually be redeveloped. The single story building sits on such a high profile corner that there is much better opportunities here. This address and corner once housed a high-rise multifamily/hotel development called Park Towers Apartments. Hopefully something tall again rises soon! I stopped by this weekend and took a picture of the street sign.
  10. This old MDA warehouse looks in bad shape. It's mostly vacant? I never see much activity here. I stopped by this weekend to take pictures.
  11. I stopped by the warehouse development this weekend. Looks like the street signage went under a change recently. There is a temporary sticker place over the top.
  12. 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.
  13. Houston-based AmReit has bought Uptown Park, a Galleria-area retail center developed by Giorgio Borlenghi's Interfin, for $68.8 million. http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/front/3208551
  14. Noticed a near $2 million renovation project for MDACC's Main Building at 1515 Holcombe Blvd.
  15. Is there anyway to watch the MD Anderson television network when you are outside of the hospital system?
  16. Will this 1954 building originally called the MD Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute ever be demolished? Isn't there another name for it? Edit: The (modern) name is Gimbel Building. https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/sites/default/files/opinion-files/opinion/1962/ww-1369.pdf "An official opinion of your office is requested on the following factual situation in connection with the administration of the Estate of Mose A. Gimbel, deceased, wherein The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute has been designated as a beneficiary pursuant to paragraph 4 of the will which reads: "'It Is my will and I do hereby provide that my said Trustee shall hold and administer my estate for one year after the death of my said sister, or until the New Medical Center adjoining Hermann Hospital is developed, when my remaining estate shall be liquidated and my entire estate remaining estate shall be used for the erection of a building In said Medical Center, said building to be used for the purpose of advancing the cure of cancer; said building to be dedicated in memory of my beloved parents, Louis and Amelia Gimbel.' "Mr. Gimbel of Houston, Harris County, Texas, executed his will on August 9, 1950, in conformity with law and later on October 7, 1954, executed a codicil. The will was admitted to probate in October, 1958, in the Probate Court of Harris County, Texas. The Executors, the Texas National Rank of Houston, who is also the Trustee under Honorable J. C. Dolley, page 2 (w-1369) said will, and Herbert S. Gimbel of Miami, Florida, have designated The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute as the institution to receive the remainder of the estate. Present plans call for a new building on the north end of the Clinical Services Wing which will have seven floors with approximately 4,200 square feet of space to each floor, giving a total additional area of approximately 29,400 square feet. This building will be erected on a basement and ground floor which was provided in an earlier construction program. It will be erected as a separate building and operated as an Integral part of the M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute, an Institution established for the purpose of research for advancing the cure of cancer. The building will be dedicated to the memory of the parents of Mose A. Gimbel, namely, Louis and Amelia Gimbel. There is attached to this request for your information a brochure containing the construction plan, the various departments to be housed in the building, together with a data sheet containing general information as to the organizational framework of The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute.
  17. https://www.mdanderson.org/research/departments-labs-institutes/institutes/duncan-family-institute.html The Duncan Family Institute for Cancer Prevention and Risk Assessment, formed in 2008 through a generous gift from the Duncan Family, is advancing the science and practice of cancer prevention by accelerating the discovery and translation of new knowledge about cancer risk factors and developing innovative ways to reduce risk and prevent cancer while expanding our studies to attack multiple risk factors using complementary strategies. The Duncan Family Institute serves to foster collaboration aimed at breaking new ground in cancer prevention. Surprised we don't have a thread for this key building. There is about to be 3 structures built around it to form a centralized campus. I'm not sure what this campus is called? It's located within the North Campus. Shown as Phase 2 in this master plan.
  18. Couldn't find anything about this. IMG_0723 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMG_0724 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMG_0722 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMG_0721 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr
  19. Noticed this completed development on Medistar's website. https://medistarcorp.com/completed/ Completed in 2010, Medistar developed St. Luke's Sugar Land Hospital and Medical Plaza as a five-story, 220,000 square foot hospital. The hospital is complemented by a five-story, 125,000 square foot medical office building featuring a linear accelerator to support MD Anderson Cancer Center, a major tenant in the MOB.
  20. The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System has for sale, 68.666 acres out of 717.3 acres, adjacent to Buescher State Park in Smithville Texas. The sale of additional land may be considered. The land is improved with an approximately 150,000 square foot basic life science laboratory research park, including laboratories, vivarium, office, conference and other support spaces. The property may only be used for research purposes. https://www.utsystem.edu/offices/real-estate/property/68666-acres-improved-basic-life-sciences-research-park-smithville-texas
  21. Today I gave blood at the MD Anderson Blood Donor Center at 2555 Holly Hall street. Very friendly staff and very easy to give blood! My collection of MD Anderson swag is growing!
  22. 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.
  23. First recognized their land a few years ago. This is across the street from the new Blossom Hotel and also their Mid Campus Admin building. One day, MDACC will run out of room and build on this land. Looks like there are two or three businesses remaining. Might be waiting until they can grab the whole piece? My visit from earlier in the week:
