Sorry for being very late to this party, but what is the latest on the 58-floor tower? Is that still in the works?

It’s still in the long term plan, for what that’s worth. I suspect the hotel will be next given Dr. Mann’s statements. I’m skeptical the tower will happen just given the difference in scale between it and other residential that’s been done in Houston and given the lack of a brand name developer (e.g. Hines, Skanska) behind it.

Can't say I like the term "medical arts". I want a higher grade of predictability and consistency from my medicine, and fewer opportunities for the "medical artist" to express their feelings.

Have you seen Paris Hilton lately? Her plastic surgeon is Michelangelo with a scalpel. That’s a medical artist.

The Medical Arts Building was a new American genre in professional and civic life.  Don’t know if there’s a book about them but dozens of cities had one, and the design was frequently worth a long lingering look.  Here are a few.

"Museo Institute" doesn’t turn up anything as a search term on map apps yet.  The old Mann Eye Center block across the street, at 5115 Main, though, is roped off.

Maybe it’s vacated and to be prepped for demolition for the next phase already?
