A crane and 2 egrets were spotted on Brays Bayou just east of Main St.Â by a curious reader, along with theÂ rising superstructure of the newÂ Houston Community College Coleman College for Health Sciences building. The midrise, which will eventually connect to theÂ other HCC buildings across Pressler St. via skybridge, should have 10 stories by the time the building opensÂ (which, per HCC’s current plans, will be next August). The building is going up between theÂ UT’s Sarofim Research Building and theÂ large parking lotÂ where the Shamrock Movie TheaterÂ once stood, across Main St. from the currently-also-mostly-a-parking-lot Shamrock Hilton site where the new DeBakey High School campus is going up.
