I'm guessing this building is around the same age or within the same time frame as the ole Exxon Building. Same look (International Style), and same materials (monolithic stone exterior) both are marble right? I can't remember if the Exxon buildings facade is also marble.

At the most recent meeting of the Board of Regents for the A&M System there was an item called "Development Tract (~4.5 acres on Holcombe Blvd.‐adjacent to TMC)" in the Public-Private Partnership list with a projected value of $325 million which I can only imagine will be a massive (and tall!) project.

Hospitals are super expensive. The Health 2 building at the University of Houston was only 9 stories and cost almost $150 million. 

 

As someone who worked next to a guy that was part of a "healthcare division" for a previous firm, I can certainly concur. Its not actually the "building" itself, but the equipment inside and then building elements that have to meet certain standards for said equipment. Its also one of the strictest and most highly regulated building types....which is also why its a very specified sector one works in as far as architecture goes. You either are into that sort of thing or not.

Crane flying up whole trailer full of AC air ducts.

Irving Crane was making the lift, looked them up since I had never heard of them. First thought was they were from Irving, Tx but turns out they are a Canadian company with  an office in Maine. Weird they couldn't use a local company unless they are ATM Aggies too, since Vaughn is an Aggie grad company.

Saw a crane on site went to investigate. Ended up talking to a couple of Vaughn workers. They said the crane didn't have enough stick and counter weight to do the required lifts. The hand railings on the south side will be replaced. Vaughn is also the GC of the TMC3 and they said it will be starting up very soon.

If built, the Med Center skyline could rival that of downtown and several other major city skylines!

Gonna take TMC 10+ , 150+ m towers to rival Downtwon Htown. But I would say rn it's around 3rd or 4th biggest skyline in Texas. Should move up to 2nd or 3rd in the coming years, especially when some of these skyscrapers are finished. 

But damn is it impressive how many high rises Houston has.TMC/Uptown alone, could be a medium-large cities' skyline by itself. While Downtown is just on another level of size. This doesn't even count everything else in-between.
