Would it kill someone to build something with a pointy top? Or at least some cool lights or something?

This is what I've been saying for quite some time... but nobody listens.

Despite challenges, UH wants to open medical school by 2019

Despite challenges in raising money and gaining state approval, University of Houston officials are still set on opening a medical school - possibly by 2019 - on the flagship southeast Houston campus.

A medical school, university officials say, wouldn't be merely another token of prestige for UH, which is working to enhance its standing as an elite research institution. Instead, they say, it would meet a need for better health care services in the Third Ward community near the campus. UH already has committed hundreds of thousands of dollars to develop a plan for the school, pay consultants to study its feasibility and hire a "planning dean," tasked with developing a business plan and curriculum.

To open a medical school, however, UH will need state approval and tens of millions of dollars for startup costs. With the University of Texas opening two new medical schools in 2016 and at least two other public universities - the University of North Texas and Sam Houston State University - also pushing for medical schools, another in Houston would be a "tough sell," Raymund Paredes, the state's top higher education official, said in an interview this week.

In three decades, we're going to look back at this picture and say, "Remember when they were building Market Square Tower and 609 Main downtown?"

Groundbreaking Held for COH/Harris County Joint Processing Center

The $100 million processing center - to be built north of Buffalo Bayou downtown and next door to the county's Baker Street Jail - will be built with bonds approved by county voters in November 2013. Construction will require no tax increase; the county will pay off the bonds with savings produced by the new facility's operation.

The 246,000-square-foot Joint Processing Center is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.

500 micro-units planned for Ivy Lofts. Glad to see this concept is being pushed for Houston. Great location as it's only a few blocks from downtown. Construction expected to start by Summer 2016.

The 1.4-acre property is located at the corner of Leeland and Live Oak streets and will contain 500 micro-units, with first-floor retail.

Houston-based Powers Brown Architecture designed the plans for the building. Re/Max Inner Loop is handling the sales for the project, which are expected to begin in February.

My wife and I are planning on visiting Htown for a few days during the week of Thanksgiving. We already have a few ideas for places we'd like to visit but I would appreciate (PM is fine) any options for must have food, urban walkable destinations and/or museums to see while we are there. THANKS.

Nice update DBG. The glass on 609 Main is becoming more visible from further away as it rises.
