  1. Noticed a near $2 million renovation project for MDACC's Main Building at 1515 Holcombe Blvd.
  2. I walked through here the other day. Noticed we didn't have a thread for this.
  3. Is there anyway to watch the MD Anderson television network when you are outside of the hospital system?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. I was reading about MacKie and Kamrath and noticed they designed this building in 1975. The address is 1200 Pressler St, Houston, TX 77030.
  8. 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.
  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. 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
  11. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2018/01/09/state-approves-initial-funding-for-uthealth.html Site is just outside the TMC: https://www.google.com/maps/place/2800+S+MacGregor+Way,+Houston,+TX+77021/@29.7115275,-95.3746963,3a,75y,279.77h,93.05t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sU2JfaN4iiyYPnKes4n3MAQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x8640bf97b4082a43:0xd01096f0aebe7d01!8m2!3d29.7122117!4d-95.3743252
  12. 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!
  13. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/6500-West-Loop-South-Bellaire-TX/16466307/
  14. 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:
  15. Noticed this UTMB Dickinson Family Medicine Expansion on TDLR this week.
  16. Vaughn Construction using a tower crane to build this.
  17. Associated Press The University of Texas Health Science Center has received $5 million for cardiovascular stem cell research, the institution announced today. The gift will be split evenly between the health science center and the Texas Heart Institute to establish stem cell research endowments. Dr. James T. Willerson, president of the health science center, said the gift would help broaden basic stem cell research as well as develop treatment efforts for patients with coronary artery disease and severe heart failure. UT-Houston received a separate $25 million gift for stem cell research last year, making it the state's leader in that research field. UT-Houston is the only institution at the Texas Medical Center working with stem cells derived from human embryos from the existing cell lines approved by the federal government. Stem cells, which can come from adults and donated embryos, could potentially be used to repair spinal cord injuries and reverse effects of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. But research involving destruction of human embryos has generated heated debate over possibilities of stellar medical breakthroughs versus immoral or unethical sacrifice of embryos for studies that may or may not produce results. In 2001, President Bush restricted use of federal money on embryonic stem cell research to existing lines. Privately funded research is ongoing. Willerson and Dr. Emerson Perin, director of new interventional cardiovascular technology at the Texas Heart Institute, lead one of the first FDA-approved clinical trials to treat end-stage heart disease patients using stem cells derived from their own bone marrow. "Through our investigations, we hope to make a significant contribution in the battle to transform the future of medicine and to prevent and conquer cardiovascular disease," Willerson said. Link

  19. A couple years ago, the Towers Motor Hotel at 2130 W. Holcombe was demolished to make way for a Metrontario development called the Life Science Plaza. Metrontario's site gives this information: "This project is currently in the pre-construction phase, with over 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters) already leased" Does anyone know if this is current, or if there is any newer information on this project? This is the sign on holcombe (pre-demolition, but it is still there)
  20. Wonder why they are unloading this property? I guess they cannot buy the next door parcels. The lot is too small to develop into anything worth while. MD Anderson still owns a bunch of vacant land in the area. Dreyfus, Lyndon, Leehall, Bertner, Fannin, OST, etc. https://www.utsystem.edu/offices/real-estate/property/1113-st-agnes-street The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System has for sale the surface estate only in one lot, located in Houston, Harris County, Texas. The 5,000 square foot interior lot is located at 1113 St. Agnes Street, between Fannin Street and Bertner Avenue, south of Braeswood Boulevard.*
