Houston: M.D. Anderson time frame for 170K-SF facility in Energy CorridorHouston: M.D. Anderson time frame for 170K-SF facility in Energy Corridorhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=123062016-02-26T06:00:00Z2016-02-26T19:00:00Z

​HOUSTON - The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center expects to break ground on a new 170,000-sf facility in the Energy Corridor that will consolidate the cancer research and treatment hospital's west Houston operations.

The new facility, located on the north side of I-10 between Eldridge and Park & Ride Dr., is expected to be completed sometime in 2018 following a 2016 groundbreaking.

It will consolidate the three existing west Houston operations that M.D. Anderson currently has including clinical offices, lab and imaging services and supportive care.

All of those facilities are currently housed in an office building, Memorial Hermann's Memorial City campus or on the former site of St. Catherine Hospital, which is now owned by Houston Methodist.

Once the new building is completed, it will be M.D. Anderson's first standalone campus outside the Texas Medical Center. 

The different services will move into the new center between 2018 and 2022 as existing operating leases at the current locations expire.

M.D. Anderson purchased the 34.77 acres in 2012 from Central Park West LP, an affiliate of Houston real estate firm Wolff Cos. for $34.1 million. ​​
