Texas Medical Center 3 Is on the Way!
The Texas Medical Center expansion may finally be happening. The TMC will put out RFPs in coming months in preparation of breaking ground on TMC3, which will include a convention center, hotel, retail and living space as well as a collaborative research campus. TMC is already the world’s largest medical complex, but CEO Dr. Bobby Robbins (whom we snapped, right, with COO Bill McKeon) says this will put Houston on the map to compete with London, Shanghai, Boston, San Francisco and Singapore. Dr. Robbins had announced the project last year, and reportedly already has developers willing to front the initial costs. If TMC3 kicks off this year, it’ll join a healthcare facility boom around the country, as well as a slew of projects already underway within the TMC. [HBJ]
