Recommended Posts

^^^ this proposed medical development is SUPER HI-TECH!

these modern features are so very futuristic, that it reminds one of a spaceship.  just observe the flooring and the overall curvatures of the breezeways...

simply gorgeous!

The proposed diagnostic and treatment facility at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center is an icon for state-of-the-art medical research and practice.  The 21-story expansion emphasizes visual recognition from Old Spanish Trail and the adjacent research campus.  This 448-bed patient tower is oriented to mark the gateway into the Texas Medical Center research campus.

 

The angled orientation of the tower establishes its relationship between Old Spanish Trail and provided favorable views for both the northwest and southwest facing lounge spaces located at the end of each floor.  Simultaneously the orientation improves self-shading.  The 5-story diagnostics and treatment facility is organized to convey clear points of access for visitors while providing ample overhangs to shade naturally lit multi-volume entrances and public drop-off areas.  A signature bridge bypasses the ambulance drop-off area and Emergency Department walk-up entrance and connects the parking structure to the Cardiovascular Center of Excellence and lower level lobbies.  Together the bridge and Cardiovascular Center function as recognizably prominent design features supporting the significance of this center.  An outdoor terrace on the third level of the medical center separates the D&T block and existing tower while providing views of a landscape terrace from above.  This terrace accommodates both patients, their loved ones and the staff that care for them with tranquil spaces set apart from the stress and tension often experienced treatment.

Any pics here? How far along is this one?

Not 100% sure if this is the site but they have a fence up and some rebar on the grounds and what appears to be lay down lots across the street.

@hindesky Thanks! That's the site of the proposed research campus, could it be the first signs of activity for the project?

 

Baylor's campus expansion will be adjacent to the first building. Banners are up but no signs of activity in this street view from May.

Passed by the site today and interior build-out for the unfinished hospital is underway. No dirt moving for the expansion tower. Work was schedule to begin this past January so I wonder what's the hold up. 

 

In mid-January, construction crews will begin utilities relocation and foundation preparation for the building of Tower 2, a 420-patient bed tower. 



- Excavation for the 26-foot deep foundation for Tower 2 is scheduled to begin February 2016.

Baylor College of Medicine, CHI St. Luke's continue buildout of McNair Campus

http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2017/05/30/baylor-college-of-medicine-chi-st-lukes-continue.html

 

It's a subscriber article... Any more info?

 

No update on Tower II. Anyone know if construction ever began? It was originally scheduled to start in January 2016.

 

Baylor College of Medicine and CHI St. Luke's Health are continuing to buildout the McNair Campus south of the Texas Medical Center, according to building permits filed with the city of Houston.

 

The latest progression in the $1.1 billion campus is a building permit to complete the 8th floor of the hospital, filed on behalf of Baylor College of Medicine. The floor will house outpatient clinics. The administrative areas of the 8th floor are expected to open in the fall of 2017, with the clinic areas expected to open early next year, according to Baylor College of Medicine spokeswoman Dipali Pathak.

 

The permit, valued at $8.5 million, lists Linbeck Group as the general contractor.

 

The Baylor St. Luke's McNair Campus initially opened in January 2015. Once completed, the project will have two patient towers with 650 patient beds, as well as ambulatory services, operating rooms, laboratories and office space for clinicians.

 

The plan for the space has been to move out of Baylor St. Luke's existing hospital in the heart of the medical center. Two pieces of that campus, anchored by the flagship O'Quinn Towers, were sold last year to Texas Children's Hospital for an undisclosed amount.

It's being put on hold for now. Instead, they're gonna focus on finishing tower 1 sooner, and they'll be making some upgrades to the current St. Luke's building in the meanwhile. They cited "uncertainty in the national healthcare landscape" as part of the reason why.

I thought they sold that old St Luke's Tower to either Methodist or Texas Children's? Did they lease it back for a longer period?

CHI St Luke's still owns the St Luke's Tower on Bates St along with the now vacant 1950's era hospital building on Bertner. The Texas Heart Center building on Bertner is also owner by CHI St. Luke's. They did sell the O'Quinn Tower on Fannin and the Baylor Clinic building on Main St. to Texas Children's last year.

Texas Children's would be the obvious purchaser of those remaining TMC buildings once CHI St Luke's fully moves all of it's services to the McNair campus. The two institutions share already common corridors, several entrances and some life safety systems in those original buildings anyway.

According to This , tower two has supposedly started.

 

Quote

The future of the Texas Medical Center is tied to The Baylor College of Medicine and CHI St. Luke's Health's $1.1B McNair campus. While JE Dunn is building out the interior of Tower 1, Tellepsen Hunt, a joint venture between Tellepsen and Hunt Construction Group, has started construction on the second tower. Once completed, the McNair campus will occupy 1.2M SF with 650 hospital beds across two towers. Completion of the entire McNair campus is slated for 2019.

I count 13 stories in that rendering, although my count may be off because it appears to be a rendering of how someone might see this after taking a number of hallucinogens.

Previous design by HKS

 

11951523_10153106600240418_6783658612224

 

The current design is much more mature looking. This one is interesting in some ways, but its clearly a preliminary stab at it. The dead give away is the extremely thin floor slabs, extremely (laughably) thin columns, and thin material profiles. But hey, gotta start somewhere. At least the render gets our climate right haha. Nice and rainy.

Some relevant info excerpted from an interview in the HBJ with CHI St. Luke's/Baylor St. Luke's President Gay Nord.

The other thing on the horizon is that we will be opening inpatient services in our Baylor St. Luke’s McNair campus, which is about a mile and a half from here, and those beds will open in January 2019. At the same time, this will free up capacity at our TMC hospital too — we’ve had some capacity issues at TMC, so this really works nicely strategically and for our patients and create capacity.

As of late, I’ve also been attending meetings with architects on the TMC and the McNair campus. My day usually ends early to late evening — it’s not unusual for me to have a dinner meeting at least Monday through Thursday. Then, I get to go home to my family before doing it all over again the next day — very full, but typically very rewarding days.

This is great, it's looking like the neighborhood around TMC3 is starting to shape up.

 

I'm guessing the older renderings on this thread are not up to date. Does anyone know if there are any updated renderings out yet?

I notice a stray dash after the "12."  I wonder if there might be additional stories for the building, but, at this time, the interior build-out is only being done for floors one through twelve (that is, a shell will be built above).

 

I'm not well versed in City of Houston permitting nomenclature and clerk entry patterns, so apologies if my speculation is off base. :)

The area was paved with PVC conduit added.  My guess it is for a future construction office for the campus expansion. Other parts of the hospital had stakes in the ground.

I'm not entirely sure.  The tower looks curved. This could be the back side with the 5-story diagnostics and treatment facility.

Holding off on rant until we're sure that rendering is not just a terrible angle.

I remember seeing this grouped in with the Baylor McNair slides, anybody know if this is apart of the McNair campus?TMC_3,_Texas_Medical_Center_Research_Campus_-_Page_9_-_Going_Up!_-_HAIF_-_Houston's_Leading_News_Forum_-_Google_Chrome_11_9_2019_1_21_48_PM.png.4f8e8dbfccd95bd9f79a20cc075485e9.png

I'm disappointed in the latest design. I liked the earlier curved glass buildings better.

Floor count matches old rendering. Breathing again...

I think you are possibly right. I guess they are building two separate entities. One is this diagnostics and treatment facility...

and the other one matching the floor count which you state is the building that was first proposed and looks like its still happening.

 

This seems true given that both entities were displayed at this presentation.

More equipment on site. A crane company was also at the site. That electrical panel is also new.

 

Possibly related to the COH OST improvements.
