  1. Interesting dome shaped gas station at the Kirby & Main intersection. Found this on the A Field Guide to Gas Stations in Texas book. https://www.thc.texas.gov/public/upload/preserve/survey/highway/TxDOT Field Guide to Gas Stations in TX 2016.pdf
  2. Disappointing to see another historic demo (per HCAD this structure goes back to 1926), though IMO this building has been in fairly rough shape for years. New permits suggest a 4K sq foot c-store + kitchen. Hoping that with Caveza closing across the street this can bring some new life into the area - and it's something more than the c-store (Oscar's) that is already just a block north of here...
  3. Office space and convenience store to be built at this location (one block north of EEB).
  4. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/2501-S-Braeswood-Dr-Houston-TX/17047632/
  5. Merge if this topic exists. Couldn’t find it. The Shell gas station that has been closed for about two months now has been demolished. This is the gas station right next to Buffalo Soldiers Museum and across from HCC Central.
  6. Does anyone know what kind of gas is being built on Westheimer near Wilcrest. The all brick facade is turning out very nicely.
  7. Anyone know what's going in right here? Wonder if it'll be another gas station. Digging out those tanks is costly so I've heard.
  8. I noticed that the entire gas station has been fenced off with CLOSED signs all around. Anyone know what's going on here?
  9. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed fencing had gone up around the Shell station near the corner of N Durham Drive and N Loop West. Within a few days, equipment had been brought to the site and the station was demolished. I haven't had the chance to take any pictures of the activity, but they have removed almost all of the building above ground and are now working on removing the remaining structure underground. Does anyone know if there is a project scheduled to go up on this site? (If this topic has been touched upon in another thread, it would be great if someone could link it here.) Here is the site: https://goo.gl/maps/iCPmBW81wcq.
  10. Doing some research for the South Belt history blog, I was rifling through the AIA negatives at the Texas Room in the Julia Ideson building of HPL and couldn't pass up a chance to get a couple of prints of this Googie reminiscent filling station. One sleeve appears to be taken prior to the other. The older of the two, I believe, is the Fina shot, and the later one of the station as a Conoco from the opposing street. Just wanted to share. I shared them (through the magnifying glass) with Tim, the reference librarian who's been such a great help, and he said, "It looks like something just landed from outer space!" Granted, it's eerier on the negative with the whole sky black, but still a fun find. These were shoved in a file folder marked "Unidentified, Area 13" and the only marking on the negative sleeve says Wayside @Polk. If anyone has any additional information, perhaps when the saucers were finally dismantled, I'd love to know!
  11. Anyone know what's going on at this Shell station? They took out the underground tanks and the pumps last week. They backfilled the hole and the windows and doors have been boarded up since. flipper
  12. What's going on with the gas station at Westheimer and Montrose? Remodeling? Or (fingers crossed) are they tearing it down?
