  1. There's a large (for this neighborhood) steel-framed building going up on the north side of Westheimer in the 500 block (approximately where the Happy Budda used to be). Also, across the street a smaller building is going up in a former vacant lot (wedged between the strip center and the VA services building.) Anyone know what businesses are going into these new buildings? edit: I'm also curious about the lot at Whitney and Westheimer (northeast corner). An old house was moved to this site a few years ago; for a while it was used as offices for a used car lot, then a short-lived nightclub called Da House. I see everything above the first floor has been removed. Is it being moved again? Any idea what might go in its place?
  2. The Montrose (Ghetto, Disco) Kroger has stripped their aging flooring. According to the cashier, they're planning a complete renovation, to be completed in 7-8 months. Guess the coming competition from H-E-B has roused them from their coma. While some fresh paint will be welcome, I hope they'll also become more conscientious about replacing wilted produce and forego their tradition of unmarked or overcharged items.
  3. 2-Story medical office building going up at the corner of Bomar and Montrose. Looks like it will replace the the Hollywood Food & Cigar spot. Address is 1103 Bomar St.
  4. The Bowery On Montrose was never built. I really liked the architectural design on this building. I wonder if they could re-use the architectural design for another multifamily building in a different part of the city? Rendering for the (now cancelled) never built project. Oddly enough, the project is still active, and displayed, on the developer's website (as of 10/05/2022) https://farbhomes.com/apartmenthomes/montrose/
  5. This thread was originally created February 26, 2017. I'm reposting / reupping this because this post and other content from me are no longer available on the forum. An archive link of the thread before its deletion is here. Davis Commercial is marketing this property (archived link) next to an existing office building at 701 Richmond Ave. T he building size is 3,000 SF.

  6. Saw this track hoe in the parking lot of the old Positive Recovery Center building. It was a restaurant when I moved to the neighborhood but PRC took it over a few years later, looks abandoned now. Looks like it might get demolished. It has a huge parking area in the back and is 2 lots wide.
  7. New project by Austin’s Bunkhouse Group. They’ve previously done El Cosmico (Marfa), Hotel San Jose & Hotel Saint Cecila (Austin), Hotel Havana (San Antonio), and Hotel Phoenix (San Francisco) Unlike their past projects, this will be new construction adjacent to the Menil.

  8. Article today on a development in east Montrose from the Montrose management district http://montrosedistrict.org/new-redevelopment-project-planned-for-east-montrose/
  9. Worthy of a new thread.... Construction set to begin on high-rise by summer 13-story condo to be built on site of former River Caf
  10. A lot of rumors about the Montrose HPD (900 block Westheimer) storefront closing, not surprising since HPD Chief Acevedo wasn’t a fan of store front idea. But a neighbor mentioned a developer had bought the entire strip ( Guess Theo’s Will be moving also.)center and a few adjacent lots north on Grant and on Crockett street including a beautifully restored 1920’s home. All for multi use multi-storied building ——included will be the Freed library’s move from Montrose Blvd. Apparently the developer did something charming around 6 th street and Yale in the Heights. Now I wonder if this developer will underwrite the HPD storefront in that development or if someone else will offer rent free space inside Montrose for the storefront to move into.

  11. For years, whenever I would turn left from Mandell onto Westheimer, I would look at the building on the north-west corner (now Hugo's Mexican Restaurant, http://kaldis.com/hugosrestaurant.html , before that, Imperial Plumbing Supply, before that (?), and I would have a dim toddler-memory of having eaten ice cream there, some 60 years ago. I had the notion that it had been a Rettig's Ice Cream Parlor, but I learned a few years ago on HAIF that the nearest Rettig's had been 3 or 4 blocks east, on Windsor at Westheimer. Finally, my dim bulb lit up enough for me to do a little googling and discover that the building had been a Mading's Drugstore. That made sense: most drugstores back then served ice cream; as a toddler I probably thought that any place that served ice cream was called Rettig's; there was a Rettig's down the street... . But the memory is both indelible and dim. Did anyone else ever patronize that business when it was a drugstore? Just wondering.
  12. Looks like something is happening here. Maybe a car wash to compliment the one across the street?
  13. Spoke with one of the guys who works at Montrose Car Care on Saturday morning and learned that they are closing at the end of the month. Most of the people are relocating to another shop further south on Montrose as part of a "merger" of sorts. My immediate thought was that the property had changed hands and a new development might be forthcoming. This is one of the more prominent intersections in this part of Montrose, so I could see a new retail development doing well here. Property was listed on LoopNet for lease, but was pulled down about a month ago. Seems consistent with a new buyer. Laz Enterprises, Inc. has owned the lot since 2001--I assume this is an entity associated with everyone's favorite parking lot operator. Hopefully it has changed hands and isn't destined to be another parking lot (like what they did a few blocks east at Stanford).
  14. Couldn't find if there was an existing thread. But the pier one imports is being demolition and replaced with a chase bank. Drove by today and noticed half the building was already gone. Chase has an entire building directly across the street, could they be rebuilding and moving? It would make sense because they've done this with their other locations like the one on Westheimer and Beltway 8. If they did, their current building across the street could be redeveloped into something big! Building across the street

  16. Does anyone know what is planned for the large tract at the former site of Houston Community College on Richmond at Dunlavy? Who is the developer?
  17. There were 3 demolition permits issued this week for this. Anyone know what's happening here? Loopnet listing https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1732-1744-Richmond-Ave-Houston-TX/3832638/
