  1. I found this Houston Chronicle article dated July 22, 1962 that detailed the new Texas Heart Institute. Unique Heart Center Planned Construction of a unique 10-story, $6 million Heart Institute as an addition to the joint facilities of St. Luke's Episcopal and Teas Children's Hospitals has been proposed by the board of both hospitals. The institute, preliminary plans of which are new on architects' drawing boards. Would be devoted exclusive the medical and surgical treatment of the heart, education and research. Dr. Maynard Martin, administrator of St. Lukes and Texas Children's who has been designated to be the institute administrator, said "it will be the only facility like this kind in the nation, probably. Leopold Meyer, president of Texas Children's Hospital said, "Construction on the hospital will cost $6 million, with further funds necessary for equipment". Preliminary drawings for the institute were prepared by Staub, Rather, and Howze Architects who in association with Rustay and Martin, and Caudit, Bowlett and Scott have planed for the expansion of the north side of the joint hospital facility and the construction of a parking garage now underway. Edit: Looks like the new hospital was a direct replacement of the old. It's in the exact same location, next to the original St. Lukes Hospital.
  2. has anyone seen the kuhl-linscomb (kirby @ w. alabama)? they started off as one large store in an upscale strip center and now they have expanded. instead of tearing down a whole street of houses (vintage 2&4plexes which are really great), they bought every house on the neighboring residential street (about 6), painted them the same color and put a large number on each door. every house is a different "department" of the store. although not every company could afford to do this, i am glad that with their resources they chose to. it lends to something that this board discuses often, walk friendly vs. car friendly shopping, with a parking lot just in front of the main building. i ride my bike down this street everyday (now that the bike lane has been removed from w. alabama) and appreciate the houses getting to stay around. the only thing i dislike is the white burglar bars on the bottom floor of each house, it might look modern from the inside but it looks a little ghetto from the outside, since the houses are so dark. st. thomas also does this, buying property in the neighborhood and restoring most of them instead of tearing them down. actually, they just bought the 1940
  3. 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.
  4. there has been a sign for over a year now off the north i-10 feeder past barker cypress for a new texas childrens hospital. has anyone heard anymore about this new development? and is interfin ever going to develop the land north of i-10 at grand parkway because that was where the 'new' galleria was supposed to be built. I think they are in impending lawsuits with katy mills mall, but I am not too sure.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. This is big news! The renderings look pretty decent. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4270485.html

  9. Heard from a 2nd person today that TCH will be building a new tower on Main. This will be located across from the two Mediatar developments.
  10. 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...
  11. I've always liked the signage to this building. It's arty. https://www.braunenterprises.com/5757-woodway
  12. Always liked this building from the freeway. Wish the 610 canyon would extended into Bellaire more. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/6330-West-Loop-S-Bellaire-TX/5837502/
  13. https://www.tmc.edu/news/2019/02/center-for-hearing-and-speech-and-texas-childrens-to-collaborate-on-pediatric-hearing-services-hub/ Map. Also not sure if the old building at 3636 W Dallas is apart of Hanover's Mixed Use project.
  14. Announced in the Houston Business Journal Today: http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2014/11/texas-childrens-hospital-to-expand-tower-in-the.html This should nicely add to the Medical Center skyline. I hope they keep with the practice of having lighting features as many of the taller structures in the TMC do.
  15. Found some new renderings for the Towne Lake Boardwalk restaurant, retail and entertainment development near Barker Cypress & Tuckerton:

  17. In 2020, Texas Children’s Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics and Texas Children’s Autism Center merged to form the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics and Autism because of their overlapping mission and patient population. The building's address is 8080 Stadium Drive Houston, TX 77054. With this change, the former Autism Center became an Autism Clinic within the Meyer Center, similar to existing clinics within the Meyer Center focused on specific developmental conditions. How did two competing centers come about in the first place? The original Child Development Clinic was founded in 1960 and later renamed the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics. It was established to diagnose infants, children and adolescents with the full range of developmental-behavioral issues, including autism spectrum disorders. This organizational structure delivered comprehensive patient services, a beneficial approach because children with autism often exhibit other developmental disabilities, such as language disorders, intellectual disabilities, hyperactivity and challenges with motor coordination. The Meyer Center provides medical services for patients at increased risk due to other complications, as well as social work consultation to facilitate families’ access to educational, therapeutic and social services available in their local communities. The Learning Support Center created a separate Autism Center in 1998. Since its inception, it functioned in parallel to the Meyer Center in diagnosing and serving patients with autism. This led to a number of challenges, both from an operational standpoint and in terms of patient experience. “Combining the centers is a much-needed change. Not only has it reduced internal inefficiencies and duplicative efforts of clinicians and administrative staff, but it has also eliminated much confusion on the part of patients’ families and referring physicians about which center to use. Patient waitlists have been significantly shortened. Additionally, philanthropic efforts have become more focused,” said Robert Voigt, MD, director of the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics and Autism.

  18. I saw the construction from TMC Commons today, and it looks pretty good. Anybody got any better photos?
  19. I noticed we didn't have a thread for the Texas Children's Hospital West Tower located at 6621 Fannin Street. https://www.texaschildrens.org/location/texas-childrens-west-tower
  20. Med Center Crowne Plaza to turn out lights Mary Ann Azevedo Houston Business Journal After more than three decades in operation, the Crowne Plaza Hotel Houston-Medical Center will close its doors next month. The closing comes on the heels of last month's purchase of the property -- located at 6701 Main St. -- by Baylor College of Medicine. The Crowne Plaza will permanently close its doors on Dec. 18, according to the hotel's Web site and Baylor officials. The property is one of three Main Street tracts that Baylor purchased from Houston-based The Redstone Cos. in a transaction that closed on Oct. 11, according to Baylor spokeswoman Lori Williams. The medical institution has also purchased a 74,000-square-foot tract that currently houses a Wells Fargo bank, as well as a 67,000-square-foot vacant tract across the street at Main and Southgate.

  21. From the Chron: Dr. Feigin made city a major player in pediatric medicine Dr. Ralph Feigin, who transformed Houston into one of the nation's premier centers of pediatric care, died Wednesday. He was 70. A tireless advocate for children's health in Houston and worldwide, he grew Baylor College of Medicine pediatrics from a small, barely funded department into the nation's biggest and best funded, made Texas Children's Hospital one of the nation's elite children's hospitals and trained almost half of Harris County's current population of pediatricians. Mrs. Porchman frequently commented on how remarkably energetic and very kind Dr. Feigin was. She loved his brown bag sessions when he was President at BCM.
