  1. 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?
  2. MD Anderson Cancer Center - Visitor Parking Garage, 6900 Fannin St, Houston, TX 77030
  3. 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
  4. Fom The Houston Chronice CONSTRUCTION Hermann ready to start building After winning tax breaks from the city of Houston and Harris County, Memorial Hermann Healthcare System will break ground this month on a long-awaited medical center and office building. The 30-story tower, which will include more than 500,000 square feet of space, will be built at the corner of Fannin and MacGregor in the Texas Medical Center. Mischer Healthcare Services is a partner in development of the building, Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza. The $155 million facility will include an ambulatory care center, an imaging center and surgical and endoscopy suites. Holliday Fenoglio Fowler arranged a $117.5 million construction and permanent loan for the project through Teachers Insurance Annuity Association and GMAC Commercial Mortgage Bank.
  5. 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/
  6. Looking for more information regarding UTHealth's John H. Freeman Building. From what I can tell the building was under construction in August 1971 and demolished in March 2005. Who was the architect? Does anyone have any photos of the now demolished building? Thanks. https://med.uth.edu/historical-milestones/ August 1971 John H. Freeman Building construction begins. March 2005 Demolition of the John Freeman Building begins to make way for the six-story Replacement Research Facility.
  7. Surprised we didn't have a thread for this. Serves the areas of Angleton, Danbury, Rosharon and the surrounding areas and is the first trauma designated facility in Brazoria County. The campus is located at 132 East Hospital Drive. https://www.utmb.edu/utmbhealth/locations/hospitals-campuses/angleton-danbury-campus
  8. Surprised I couldn't find a thread about this specific campus - it has grown pretty quickly in the past few years. The campus opened in 2010 as the UTMB Victory Lakes Specialty Care Center. It was rebranded to the current name in 2015. MD Anderson opened an outpatient hospital and treatment center in a connected building that was completed in 2018. A separate medical office building, 7-story garage and skybridge that connect to the hospital were completed in 2018 as well. A 5-story patient tower was completed in 2020. It has been engineered for expansion up to 12 stories in the future.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. I always pass by this building. Apparently it's houses a small MD Anderson clinic called Life Support Training Center. Photos taken this weekend.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. This is down the street from METRO's Fannin Station. The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston has 3.7383 acres for ground lease at the intersection of Cross Point Road and Center Point Road in Houston just south of the former Astroworld site. The 3.7383 acres are available for long-term ground lease. https://www.utsystem.edu/offices/real-estate/property/37383-acres-at-cross-point-avenue CrosspointSurvey.pdf
  17. Noticed a near $2 million renovation project for MDACC's Main Building at 1515 Holcombe Blvd.
  18. Is there anyway to watch the MD Anderson television network when you are outside of the hospital system?
  19. 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.
  20. The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System has an undivided 1/6 interest in 108.5 acres of flat coastal prairie land for sale in Brazoria and Galveston Counties. The property is located about six miles southeast of Alvin, north of FM 2004 and east of Halls Bayou. It is rectangular in shape and has limited access on unimproved county farm and rice field roads. https://www.utsystem.edu/offices/real-estate/property/halls-bayou-undivided-16-interest-1085-acres
  21. 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.
