If they build that mall it would be the 3rd one inside 610.

That's not a typical mall. That building has such a unique purpose that I have doubts it will get off the ground. It would have worked better if it was about a third the size proposed.

Then again, if they're not picky on tenants, it will lease up quickly.

Here are two of the best renderings I have seen for the Methodist Hospital projects that are currently under construction.

This is the Methodist Hospital Research Institute being built in the TMC


And this is the MASSIVE Methodist Hospital Outpatient Care Center that is rising on land between Main and Fannin right across from Rice U.

Thanks for finding those renderings. I don't think I've seen any of those projects in decent resolution until now.

I've been looking forward to seeing the Methodist Outpatient tower rise in that area. The parking structure within the base is starting to peek above Kindred Hospital (building in the bottom left corner) at the moment and it really gives you an early feeling of the density they're putting into that portion of the block.

It's going to get substantially denser over the next five years.

That outpatient center, like everything else in between Main and Fannin is about 8 floors of parking with hospital and office space on top. That's a lot of cars. Hope the roads are ready for it...

An $85M construction loan has been approved for a 17 story office building in the Energy Corridor. Construction is set to begin in February.

There seems to be a plot of land on either side of the Katy Freeway that is or will soon be under construction from the Loop to Highway 6. It's amazing. I was driving back in to town from San Antonio yesterday and saw nothing but cranes and construction equipment for miles.

And is anyone familiar with OPUS? I saw them advertising a development on a plot of land just west of HWY 6 on the south side of the Katy Freeway (between the Motel 6 and Super 8 Motel).

That would be this project:

I don't think I've seen much of anything on it except for a small blurb in the Business Journal a couple of weeks back.

That's it alright! I noticed the sign on Friday driving out to San Antonio. That parcel of land has been sitting oddly vacant for decades. That said, looking at the dimensions of that building, it seems like they might be tight for parking.

According to www.energycorridor.org, 2008 will see "twenty-eight new office buildings and countless improvements to streets, parks and landscaping."

I see what you mean, at least judging from the Live map of the area.

Yet on the site they say...

Quote:
Energy Crossing provides the market s most generous allocation of garage parking at 4:1 and can accommodate parking up to 5:1.
I've used Grisby to cut across the area when the feeder has been backed up in the past. Wouldn't be shocked to see that become a bit more of a headache in the future since it empties out to 6 and might be congested at times when the buildings are complete.

Say, does anybody have an idea of what's going to happen to the 2 million sf of office space HP is trying to sell up in the Compaq corridor?
