With more than 78,000 people employed in the district today and that number expected to grow to 128,000 by 2030, The Energy Corridor is one of the fastest-growing employment centers of town. Joining several other medical institutions expanding their westward reach and locating in The Corridor, the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center has purchased approximately 35 acres along the north side of Interstate 10 between Eldridge Parkway and Texas 6.
The site is in Wolff Companies’ 78-acre development, named Central Park because of its central locations within the boundaries of the Energy Corridor as well as between the 610 Loop and the Grand Parkway. Patient convenience and location to major roadways were major factors in deciding on the newly acquired property
“Central Park is the largest remaining parcel available for development in The Corridor, and MD Anderson’s purchase here is indicative of the area’s concentration of not only energy companies, but also the entire range of commercial and institutional property users,” said David S. Wolff, Chairman and President of Wolff Companies.
The project is scheduled to be built in phases, potentially beginning with a facility similar to the hospital's 300,000-square-foot outpatient clinic in the Texas Medical Center followed by a patient tower. The facility could include medical and radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging and surgery facilities.
