A reader reports seeing some activity on the long-vacant 9.177-acre melting-erlenmeyer-flask-shaped parcel of land at the northeast corner of Hwy. 288 and North MacGregor Way: no construction equipment yet, but crews wereÂ picking up trash and cutting grass. The Houston Community College system bought the property last November with plans to build a new medical-focused charter high school on the property.
The official name for the school will be the HCC Coleman College of Health Sciencesâ€™ Medical Science & Technology Early College Charter High School, but you can figure students will be calling it HCCCCHSMS&TECCHS for short. The photo above shows the view from the On the Roxx Bar & LoungeÂ across the street from the property (and pictured below) at 2541 N. MacGregor.
