The MOC started when TJ got this email on Aug 08, 2008:
Good afternoon, TJ –
My name is Lindsey K. and I work for Memorial Hermann in Houston, TX. We worked with two of your group members a few years back on a Christmas build in conjunction with Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. We are looking to host a similar event at the new Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center and I wanted to see if TexLUG might be interested in working with us again. This time, we want to replicate our new building located on IH 10 at Gessner. If you live in Houston, you know what I’m talking about… it’s a 33-story glass structure with a “crown” on top. In any case, if you are interested in discussing this further, please contact me.
Note: More information after the pictures.
After much time:

Here's TEXLUG's LEGO version of the Memorial Hermann Tower in it's temporary home in the lobby of the real thing. Memorial Hermann Hospital was to host an event in the Tower the same day the model was installed, and then in the evening would move the tower to a conference room for storage until a permanent display case is built. Currently we are told that after the building is completely finished the model will be moved up to the entry floor of the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital to set in the foyer there.

Before reading your text when I saw this what ran through my mind was 'that has to be Memorial Herman Hospital on I-10!' It is really nice to see something from home, especially while being out of the country.
