The Texas Medical Center has big plans in mind for some of the last unused real estate in the TMC district.

At last year's inaugural State of the TMC luncheon, Dr. Robert Robbins, CEO of the TMC, unveiled a grand vision of a new research campus dubbed TMC3. While dirt hasn't begun to move yet, he expects it to happen soon.

"This is going to put us on the map in Houston to compete with London, Shanghai, Boston, San Francisco and Singapore," Robbins said at the annual State of the Texas Medical Center event. "I am more confident standing here a year later that this is going to happen."

The Texas Medical Center plans to move forward with the convention center, hotel, retail and living space, Robbins told the HBJ. It plans to put out request for proposals in the coming months to get those projects started.

Robbins added that he already has the developers willing to front the initial costs for these projects, but did not elaborate on which ones specifically. He also said the Texas Medical Center will launch a philanthropic campaign to help fund the project.
