Grand Central Park added the Sam Houston State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, a major step in fulfilling the master-planned community’s goal of bringing a higher education component to the City of Conroe.
Situated on a 7.3-acre property on I-45 just south of South Loop 336, the college features a five-story, 216,000 square foot building. Phase one of the building, completed the summer of 2020, includes 108,000 square feet with surface parking. A future phase two expansion will add another 108,000 square feet. Surface parking will then be decreased with the addition of a parking garage.
“An academic setting has always been a part of our long-range plan,” notes Amanda Burke, director of marketing for Grand Central Park. “We’re delighted to serve as the home of Montgomery County’s newest medical school.”
