There’s simply too much local entertainment value packed into this 10-minute video promoting Generation Park, a proposed 3000-acre office-campus development that’s gonna grow just like the Texas Medical Center, except it’s real close to the airport and Summerwood and Fall Creek and the Ship Channel, on land where McCord Development has planted thousands of trees over the years, and it’s responsible- or renewable-energy companies they’re looking to fill it out, not nonprofit hospitals. Here’s the company’s plan of the site, ideally located between Lake Houston and Beltway 8:

While I doubt this thing will take-off and fly, it is good to see these sort of projects being talked about again. I fondly recall the heady days of “aught 6” when architects had work and the local $4bucks was full of people slacking off from their jobs, rather than looking for one!
I hope it works. The location could be better in my opinion.
What ever happened to the Texas Energy Center?
Oh yeah, it failed.
Also modeled on the Medical Center. It was down in Sugar Land.
Here’s a link to an editorial about the TEC:
Isn’t CRE still in a bad place? What makes this developer think they can afford to restrict tenancy to a certain category of company?
Did the Energy Corridor suddenly become unfashionable?
I’ve worked on this project. It is way beyond conceptual at this point. Much of the engineering has been completed and approvals obtained from local and state agencies. Even the 5 MUD districts have been created.
