Ricco67 is correct.

The Texas Heart Institute At St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital.

The Denton A. Cooley Building.

It's on Bertner St. next to the Methodist Hospital.

I was working in the area today and walked over to the building.

This is what it looks like from the ground. (not as impressive plus the clouds took away the color)

I didn't have my real camera with me, so I had to take this with my cell phone, but I thought it was a nice view. I took it from my optometrist's office.

Always snappin' shots, even without a camera. Awesome. Actually I think your cell takes better pictures than my crappy H-P digicam. In the left background, that would be Mosaic, right?

Medical Towers and Garage #1 are in the foreground, with Methodist Hosp. Main Building just beyond that. The two tower cranes are for the Methodist Research Building. TMC Commons is framed between the cranes with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center to the right of it. Methodist Dunn Tower is just to the left of the cranes, with the former TWU Mary Jones Gibbs Building to the back. Baylor College of Medicine Vivarium is above the Commons, with Jewish, Anderson, Old Ben Taub, Debakey and Alkek as you scan left. The Spires is way off to the right. I'm not quite sure what the short brown building is beyond the two cranes, but I'm guessing it could be Grocer's Supply.

I believe it would be the former Catholic Retirement Home on Almeda now converted to apts. and surrounded by more apts...and more apts...and more...

Isn't that a part of the "Alta Lofts" (the brown building between the cranes). Part of that apartment complex is an older brown colored highrise that has been converted into lofts.
