  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. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I took these before I left yesterday. It was a nice walk home through the park. Built (completed) 1948. Recently cleaned.
  6. I'm not sure how many people realized it but St. Luke's has been through some trouble. Some investigative reports about a string of patient deaths following heart procedures led to them losing their Medicare/Medicaid certification, which is a big deal. They had a patient die a couple years ago after receiving a blood transfusion for the wrong blood type, which doesn't typically happen in a first-world country. And their new hospital campus which was originally going to be complete around 2019 is now hoping to be complete around 2024. This place, particularly their heart surgery, is one of the 2 or 3 things that put Houston on the medical map. When they built their Cesar Pelli-designed professional building 20 years or so ago, they seemed to be a step ahead of everyone in the Med Center. Now they appear to be trying to stay above water. https://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/in-depth/2019/07/22/339994/after-a-dire-year-baylor-st-lukes-medical-center-looks-to-the-future/
  7. Noticed an older building on Bertner today. The building and parking lot was fenced with a tan screen. Is there something happening here? If you zoom in, it looks like the building has broken windows. Sits behind their many campus at 6720 Bertner.
  8. Construction started a few months ago for the new St. Luke's Hospital at The Vintage. "St. Luke's newest facility is coming the northwest Houston. Located just south of Vintage Park the facility is projected to be open by 2011. It will be approximately 3-5 stories tall and house between 80 and 100 beds. There will be approximately 50 to 70 active medical staff memebers and a medical office building of about 60,000 square feet."
  9. Was driving down 45 the other day (coming into town to see my parents) and noticed that there are big concrete columns sticking out of the ground next to St. Lukes Hospital on 242. These steel-reinforced concrete columns certainly look large enough to support a mulit-story highrise building. Could this be the 10-story building that Shenendoah was supposed to build? Just curious...
  10. Looks like a major fire that's coming near St. Lukes or the Children's hospital. Lots of smoke, but from the news, it's behind the Rotary Building on pressler.
  11. St. Luke's plans to quit obstetrics Maternity services would shift to Texas Children's TEXAS Children's Hospital would gain maternity services under a deal being negotiated with St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital. The deal to transfer St. Luke's obstetrics unit, driven by financial and capacity issues, has prompted Texas Children's to plan a new wing, a 20-story building that leaders hope will break ground next year and be completed in 2010. "We are dedicated to putting together world-class comprehensive maternity services, with a special emphasis on high-risk pregnancies," said Mark Wallace, president and CEO of Texas Children's. "We expect it to be very attractive to families in the community and draw patients from around the region." link... http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/3924065.html
  12. In 1946-47 a study was conducted that concluded the following 10 institutions as members that make up TMC: 1. Baylor University College of Medicine 2. University of Texas Dental Branch 3. University of Texas School of Public Health 4. University of Texas Post-Graduate Medical School 5. M.D. Anderson Hospital for Cancer Research 6. Herman Hospital 7. Methodist Hospital 8. St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital 9. Tuberculosis Hospital 10. Medical Library of Houston Academy of Medicine Given the passage of almost 6 decades how many more institutions would you thank have become members & would the old TB hospital still be active or changed names and mission today?
