Rare 21 acres hits market near Houston's Texas Medical CenterRare 21 acres hits market near Houston's Texas Medical Centerhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=128932016-04-18T05:00:00Z2016-04-18T23:00:00Z

​HOUSTON - A single tract of land large enough to hold multiple office towers, high-rise residential buildings and a hotel doesn't often come available inside Loop 610.

One near the Texas Medical Center is even more uncommon.

After 45 years, Shell Oil Co. is selling 21 acres it owns at the southwest corner of Old Spanish Trail and Greenbriar, just south of the Medical Center's main campus and directly west of the Woman's Hospital of Texas.

The site houses a midrise office building, a parking garage and several warehouse structures.

As far as most people in real estate development would be concerned, they're all teardowns. The value of the property is in the land, which is likely worth tens of millions of dollars.

The land is next to a giant parking lot owned by the Medical Center that is the proposed location of a medical research project to be called the TMC3 Innovation Campus.

The facility would bring together several Medical Center institutions and for-profit commercial components, such as hotels, shops and restaurants. It would have a large plaza shaped like a double helix, a nod to intertwining strands of DNA. 

The Shell property is along the light-rail line and represents the largest contiguous redevelopment site in the Texas Medical Center area, according to Cushman & Wakefield, which has the listing.
