“I am extremely excited to place this particular type of marble in the lobby because it is not a dead white or a cream white. When light hits this marble, it is an effulgence” Black noted, in a statement. “The marble possesses rare crystals that make it the purest white on the planet.”

 

There's a hundred-dollar word.

 

I really hope no optometrists/ophthalmologists open an office there. Could you imagine having a dilated pupil and walking through the lobby?

What is the status of the proposed 58 story tower?  Is it still likely to happen?

The residential component (58-story tower) was always proposed to be constructed after the medical office building finished. I suspect Mann Eye’s present building would need to be demolished so it could be used as a staging area for the parcel to the north. I think we’d be looking at 2023 as the earliest possible date for groundbreaking *if* the tower could get financing.

If I had to guess I don't think it'll happen as proposed and if it were to break ground with or without modification it would be in ~5 years

An artist rendering of the northwest view of the Museo medical office building that is under construction at 5115 Fannin by Dr. Mike Mann of the Mann Eye Institute.

Museo Medical Office Building, a 10-story, contemporary building at the gateway to the Museum District, celebrated a construction milestone with a topping out ceremony Thursday. Slated for completion this fall, the building is the first phase of a planned mixed-use project spanning three blocks.

Testa Rossa Properties, led by Dr. Mike Mann of Mann Eye Institute, is spearheading the development at 5115 Fannin. Real estate broker Brandy Bellow Spinks of CBRE organized the event, which was attended by medical professionals and commercial real estate brokers specializing in health care and life sciences.

Marko Dasigenis, a principal at PJMD Architects, designed the building in tandem with Dallas-based Huitt-Zollars. The building features a contemporary angular design inspired by the Cubism art movement. Mission Construction is the general contractor.

Museo will be a specialty surgery center for internal medicine specialists, dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other medical and nursing practitioners. Mann Eye Institute will relocate from next door to occupy the 10th floor. Houston-based medical practice Texas Laparoscopic Consultants has leased 9,130-square-foot lease on the ninth floor. Other tenant announcements are coming soon.

I have to agree that the color scheme isn’t cohesive.  The finished product is quite different from the rendering.

Eh, I think some people saw what they wanted to see in the rendering. This was always going to be a dated, not terribly inspiring design.

That said, I am very glad it was built and hope they can move quickly to the next phases.

My understanding is Dr. Mike Mann has wanted to control the course of development pretty tightly. I reckon he’d have signed off on the different types of glass.

It.....does not look like what was rendered, no.
