Is that 7 cranes in this picture? If so , what are all the projects?

If you look closely there are actually 8 in this picture (and 4 hidden by the white condo at Hermann hospital). From left to right 1 the blue and white crane at the MFAH expansion, 2  blue and white at Methodist North, 3 yellow Liebherr's at the Museum expansion, 1 blue at Latitude hotel and apartments and 1 at the Morgan Whole Foods apartments.

The title says "North Campus Expansion".  To me, North Campus implies The Woodlands or something.  This building seems to be in the Med Center Proper.

Went to a TMC public garage this morning. Walked around for an hour.  Finally saw the new hospital. Methodist has a nice cluster of buildings in the TMC :o

I was watching the State of Texas Medical Center 2018 today.  William McKeon was speaking about Methodists' new Walter Tower hospital on Bertner.

 

While speaking about the new tower, he mentioned the Mary Gibbs Jones Building.  He said that's next on the list. That will be gone soon, and another amazing tower will go next to it.

 

Moderator edit:  Here's the campus.  This is the building on the right.

Visited a friend at Methodist today.  First time walking into this new hospital.  I really liked the interactive Methodist history wall.

A garden in the sky lifts patients’ spirits at Houston Methodist

https://www.tmc.edu/news/2019/11/a-garden-in-the-sky-lifts-patients-spirits-at-houston-methodist/

 

Quote

 

A burst of color 21 stories above the Texas Medical Center, Horizon’s Hope garden offers Houston Methodist patients and staff the healing benefits of nature.

 

Plans for the rooftop garden began to bloom last fall when Renee Stubbins, Ph.D., senior research oncology dietitian, and Ashley Verzwyvelt, an oncology infusion nurse liaison, submitted a proposal for a natural oasis on the roof to the Center for Health and Nature.

 

The center, housed at Houston Methodist, is a partnership between Houston Methodist, Texas A&M University and Texan by Nature, a nonprofit conservation group.

 

Now, more than a year later, the garden has sprung to life at Houston Methodist Hospital-Outpatient Center.

 

“It can be so crazy and stressful up here, ” Verzwyvelt said. “Once you see that view and … this huge, impactful mural and the flowers, it just melts all of that stress.”

After Verzwyvelt and Stubbins were awarded funding by the center for the garden, members of the community reached out to get involved. Architects and planners donated their time to design a safe, relaxing space.

 

Houston’s prolific muralist, Gonzo247, formally known as Mario E. Figueroa Jr., painted a mural to accent the garden. Rich shades of blue, orange and pink, reminiscent of a Texas sunset, blend seamlessly into a hill of wildflowers.

 

“Gonzo did such a good job,” Stubbins said. “He matched our vision perfectly. … Some people might think it’s a little disorganized, but I really wanted it to look like a meadow.”

Still in its early stages, the garden is not yet open to anyone except the Houston Methodist staff maintaining it.

 

For now, the garden, which is visible from multiple patient rooms, will provide pleasant views and be part of a clinical trial with Texas A&M University to test the benefits of nature in a hospital setting. Patients will be randomly assigned to one of three rooms while receiving regular chemotherapy infusions: a room with a view of the garden, a control room with no windows, or a room where the patients will experience nature via a virtual reality headset. The trial will examine whether interaction with nature improves the patient experience.

Why are these panels being installed?

To keep debris from the demolition from falling on the driveway to the new Methodist hospital. All the other sides have enough room away from the sidewalks.

This is an exciting time for the Texas Medical Center!  It is already the largest medical center in the world and keeps growing.

 

In this rendering of Houston Methodist's Centential Tower, why does the bridge over Fannin Street have an extra level above the walkway?

It is for a future phase and will be left unfinished on the interior.
