Why American Cancer Society’s Houston Hope Lodge was delayed until now

The American Cancer Society's long-awaited Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation Hope Lodge in Houston, which will provide free lodging for cancer patients, will deliver in Houston later than expected.


Vertical construction on the $30 million facility is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2018, an American Cancer Society spokesperson told the Houston Business Journal. The facility's official groundbreaking took place in October 2017, but since then, only routine site work has taken place, the spokesperson said. The facility is underway on 2.05 acres at 6801 Ardmore St. near the Texas Medical Center.


The spokesperson cited permitting issues as the reason for the construction delay. The Houston Hope Lodge should be open to patients in January 2020, the spokesperson said. Houston-based Tellepsen is the general contractor, and Chicago-based Perkins & Will Inc. is the architect.


The Houston Hope Lodge's construction, development and initial operational costs are being funded through a $40 million capital campaign that Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and his wife, philanthropist Janice McNair, launched in 2012. The campaign is $3.6 million away from reaching its $40 million goal, the spokesperson said.
