Museum District Skyline Update


WesternGulf

Recommended Posts

Gateway will have a 450,000 sq foot medical office tower and two hotels with long term condos available. Retail will also be available. It was implied in the release that it would be a multiple building project. If not, then it would be one really large tower! The website www.gatewaymedcenter.com is registered now so I'll keep checking to see what pops up (just a placeholder right now)

Also, don't forget the MASSIVE 22 story Outpatient Care Center which will be just South of the new 430 foot Memorial Hermann Plaza. From renderings, the O.C. Center appears to be taller than the Smith Tower at Methodist (over 300 ft).

I didn't. I just thought it would blend in with the rest of the TMC skyline silhouette. Unless it is suppose to be slightly shorter than St Lukes. I think I made the Memorial Hermann Plaza taller than it really is though, but then again Calpine looks shoter than St Lukes eventhough the TMC and downtown are pretty much aligned. Oh well, I guess my mild form of OCD is messing with me. :wacko:

Excellent photos Boris. Mosaic is getting pretty tall.

Actually, they topped out a few weeks ago. That's as tall as it gets. Somehow I thought that it'd be taller than that, though.

Great pics, Boris. I've got a few, myself, from the top of that same parking garage, of Downtown, the TMC, and Hermann Park.

Hey Jax,

I took that photo from the top of the parking garage that's right across the street from the Museum's own parking garage.

Don't remember the name of the building, but it's right next to the museum of natural science.

I also took some photos from the top of the museum's parking garage, but the particular photo you posted is from the garage across the street from the museum.

Hope that helps, and can't wait to see your photos.

Very much off topic, but can someone please tell me when the building to the left was constructed and the cross street where it is located?

The white building? It's called Energy Tower I, and it's located at the intersection of Old Katy Road & N. Kirkwood. It was built around 2000 or 01.

Awesome pix btw, kinda home sick now... haha

Thanks for the info, I should check it out. I take it that garage is publicly accessible.

I will try to post some on here at some point but for now all of my photos are on Flickr if you want to check them out. http://www.flickr.com/photos/j-a-x/

i love your photos, I randomly came across them on flickr and you made me become a fan of houston architecture.
