  1. Anyone know who originally developed this garden style apartment complex? I wonder the date as well.
  2. Saw this plat several weeks ago, thought it might be a townhouse farm but now seems to be a small apartment project. Jonathan Farb grandson of Harold Farb, built the two buildings next to this that are now called The Parker. https://farbhomes.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/HC_12_2013_3.pdf https://farbhomes.com
  3. Nob Hill Apartments In Meyerland For Sale. https://communityimpact.com/houston/bellaire-meyerland-west-university/development/2020/02/19/meyerland-apartment-community-nob-hill-is-for-sale/
  4. Someone sent this info to me. Www.swamplot.com/tag/topic-Montrose
  5. San Felipe Plaza, Sunset, originally uploaded by zoomanderson1. San Felipe Plaza bids adieu to another day in Houston. The architect, Richard Keating, once told HAIF that it was one of his favorites. Shame about the location, though. It so often gets overlooked. A little closer to Uptown or downtown would have done wonders. Thanks to zoomanderson1 for the photo from the HAIF Flickr group.
  6. This will go up across the street from the Birdsall Memorial Apartments. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/columnists/sarnoff/article/Apartment-frenzy-near-Memorial-Park-intensifies-5023325.php?cmpid=btfpm
  7. Harold Farb's estate has sold the Broadway Square Apartments, a 2,496-unit complex built by the legendary developer in the early 1970s. Los Angeles-based Post Investment Group purchased the 69-acre property at 8751 Broadway Blvd. near Hobby Airport. Post would not disclose the purchase price, but said that it was well below market because of a 22 percent vacancy rate. full article
  8. I've searched quite a bit and have come up with little to nothing on the former estate of Glenn McCarthy - it sat where the Brentwood and 7575 Kirby condominiums currently are (northeast corner of Kirby and North Braeswood, right across from Jenkins' 2530 Underwood house). It was designed by Milton McGinty and completed by 1938. McCarthy bought the land from Rice Institute in 1935 and later sold it to Harold Farb in 1972. It was demolished some time between 1972 and 1977. Other than some newspaper articles about its construction and a mention of it in the Anchorage Foundation's Braeswood: An Architectural History, there doesn't seem to be much else out there. Anyone have any information or memories?
  9. I noticed a new variance request sign on the empty lot bounded by these streets. Anyone know what they are planning?
  10. Are those properties still around Houston under that name?
  11. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't heard that family name and Houston real estate in the same sentence in a long time. Industrial sites sold to developers of apartments Odds are two lots to turn into homes Industrial sites sold to developers of apartments By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle A pair of industrial tracts of land near downtown Houston have been sold to developers that will likely build residential projects on the sites. CenterPoint Energy sold the land, which amounts to nearly 14 acres along West Dallas and just south of Allen Parkway, to two builders for separate developments. Jonathan Farb of Farb Apartment Homes purchased 5.7 acres on the south side of West Dallas, just east of Montrose Boulevard. Farb, the grandson of veteran apartment developer Harold Farb, started a development company of his own several years ago and has been building townhomes in the inner city. Across West Dallas from Farb's site, Ameriton Properties bought 8.2 acres from CenterPoint at the northeast corner of West Dallas and Montrose. Ameriton, a subsidiary of Archstone-Smith, is also planning to acquire the old Robinson Public Warehouse, which sits on about three acres at 2323 Allen Parkway. The structure was built in 1929 as a Sears, Roebuck & Co. department store. The sale of the building has not yet closed, said Heather Campbell, an Archstone-Smith spokeswoman. And in a related deal, Ameriton has purchased the 2.75-acre Sacks Paper Co. site, just across Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive on Studemont. While specific plans for its sites are still unclear, Ameriton primarily develops apartments. Campbell said the company may develop parts of the land and sell what's left. The seller of the two West Dallas properties is CenterPoint. The company is moving its operations, which handle meter reading and other services, because it needs room for expansion, said David George, director of corporate real estate and facilities management. To that end, CenterPoint bought 17 acres of land just east of downtown at 3000 Harrisburg. D.E. Harvey Builders and the Kirksey architecture firm will construct and design a new operations center on the land for CenterPoint. Until that building is completed at the end of 2005, the energy firm will lease back its West Dallas properties from their new owners. Stewart Robinson of Binswanger/Conine & Robinson and Bill McDade of McDade, Smith, Gould, Johnston, Mason + Co. represented CenterPoint in the transactions. nancy.sarnoff@chron.com
