HCC’s New Planned Parenthood

HCC’S NEW PLANNED PARENTHOOD Houston Community College will take over guardianship of the land and buildings Planned Parenthood left behind when it moved to its new Gulf Fwy. headquarters. Nancy Sarnoff reports that HCC paid $5 million for 2 separate buildings plus parking lots on 2 acres of land on Fannin St. in Midtown, 2 blocks north of West Alabama. They’ll become part of HCC’s Central College campus: “[HCC vice chancellor Daniel] Seymour said it hasn’t been decided exactly how the college will use all the space, but the smaller building — formerly a bank before Planned Parenthood bought it – will be torn down because of structural problems. HCC also plans on consolidating operations currently in leased space downtown into the old Planned Parenthood building at 3601 Fannin.” [Houston Chronicle; previously on Swamplot]

  • I didn’t realize PP was actually moving out of the Midtown location. That’s disappointing.

  • Priscilla,
    I find it exciting that HCC will have more room to grow in the future. I live down the road and it will be nice to see HCC continue to invest in the area.

  • PP moved to 4600 Gulf Freeway near Cullen after renovating the old Sterling Bank Building. It is a great location, and larger. PP couldn’t meet the demand in the old building, not enough space – plus parking issues.

  • PP was spread out, and an admin group officed in the Liberty Bank Bldg., which should have been demo’d 10 years ago.

    Also, now nobody even sees the nitwits with protest signs. Humorous.

    It was a good, necessary move as noted, but watch out for the nearby underpasses flooding with heavy rains…
