  1. Edit: The DePelcin Faith Home would have had multiple city addresses? There was many buildings, or it was that large? One address was 4950 Memorial Drive. Are there any campus kids {now adults} that lved @ and remember the wonderfull life a kid had while living there during the late 40's to mid 50's @ the Sandman {12 acre} campus. It was located along Shepherd Dr. back when it was a 2 way str. and across the street was Geo. Washing Jr, HS which I thank now has some connection w/HPD and also St. Thomas School for boys. Across the str. from Sandman admin Bldg. was the Florence Crittenten Home for what in those days were termed unwed mothers. Faith Home had a 25 bed Hosp./clinic for the new borns to be adopted. BTW the Home is 112 years old. Yep been around a very long time. The Shepherd campus was build during the '39-'41 time period I believe. Also Pine Tree Camp was a really kool place they would take kids for 3 weeks during the summer. Itz history I heard was that it once was a farm. Anyway over the intervening years the Harris Cnty YMCA took possesion of it. It is still there {709 Riley Fuzzell} in Spring just as I remembered it sum 50+ years ago. Respectfully Danny Mac

  3. Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but do we know what the Hay Merchant/Blacksmith folks have planned for that lot? I'm out of state now, but I seem to recall it being fenced up the last time I was in town. And perhaps a variance request? Thanks. Just hoping to see more good news along this stretch of Westheimer...
  4. Covenant House Texas expanding services https://www.tmc.edu/news/2019/08/covenant-house-texas-expanding-services/ The organization has launched a capital campaign—Building for Life, Homelessness to Hope—that aims to raise about $25 million over the next three to five years, Executive Director Leslie Bourne said. In July, Covenant House Texas purchased an office building across the street, on Lovett Boulevard. The structure will be a key component of a campus reconstruction and expansion project. To bring attention to this daily crisis, Texas Medical Center President and CEO William “Bill” McKeon will oversee Covenant House Texas’ largest annual fundraiser on Nov. 21. As honorary chair of the 2019 Sleep Out: Executive Edition, McKeon hopes to raise $1 million by seeking the commitment of Houston business leaders—many of whom will spend the night outside to more closely connect with the reality of homelessness. “We’re here to draw awareness to some- thing we drive by every day and don’t see,” McKeon said during a spring luncheon with young adults on campus, noting that youth aren’t top-of-mind for many people who think about or encounter the homeless.
  5. 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.

  6. Article today on a development in east Montrose from the Montrose management district http://montrosedistrict.org/new-redevelopment-project-planned-for-east-montrose/
  7. George B Meyer was probably the brother the son of Joseph F Meyer, Sr. The 1923 City Directory shows George Meyer as a VP at the Joseph F Meyer Company. In 1923, he lived at 202 Avondale. I'll do some more digging and see where the Holcombe house was. It looks like the house was at 1907 Holcombe, which is the Ronald McDonald House now. From teh 1950 Census:
  8. Does anyone have any info on what is being proposed at the SE corner of Montrose and West Dallas? There is a notice of variance sign up. More town homes? As an aside, can someone please post a link so you can see what type of variance is being proposed at a particular property? I couldn't find anything like that online, but I assume it exists. Many thanks.
  9. Anyone know what's going in on McGowen and Travis where the noodle shop used to be? The sign says The Roof.... is that whole corner going to be one huge club? That's a prime location if the Camden SuperBlock gets developed.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.

  15. Just discovered Max Wesheimer's home in a newspaper article. Max was once of M.L. Westheimer's nephews. I looked on Google Maps and 1400 Chenevert is now a surface lot. I wonder how big his house was? From the newspaper The Jewish Herald-Voice dated September 22, 1938. Westheimer - Mr. and Mrs. Max and nephew, Mr. Joseph J. Eisemann, 1400 Chenevert, extend best wishes to all their friends and relatives for a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
  16. I celebrate a lot of birthdays, etc... I am the "party planner" for my group of friends/relatives... these are my faves [Dollar signs are my own emphasis]. Also, try b4-u-eat.com for reviews. Downtown - *Sambuca - great for celebrations *Bossa ($$) 610 Main *Mia Bella - Main - my fave restaurant, but sadly the staff has changed recently. Midtown *Damian's ($$$) 3011 Smith - classic Italian Montrose / Shepherd - *Vincent's / Nino's / Grappino di Nino ($$) 2701 W. Dallas http://www.ninos-vincents.com/ Nino
  17. I got this in an email from the Museum District business Alliance--- The newly formed Montrose Management District needs your input on how it should be marketing our area. To provide your input, we request that you go to www.montroselogo.com and complete the survey on this website. FYI--- The East Montrose Management district ( HCID#6 roughly covering Dallas to Bagby to I59 to Montrose blvd) was combined with West Montrose Management (boundary goes Shepherd, Dallas, Montrose blvd to I59 with a small portion of Museum district Montrose Blvd, Bissonnet, Graustark) montrosedistrict.org/
  18. Via Swamplot: http://swamplot.com/swamplot-street-sleuths-chances-are/2010-07-13/ and the Commgate listing: http://www.commgate.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=property.detailFS&ln=192832 Anyone think the buildings will stay? Is Chances relocating?
  19. I'm not sure of this person's first name. Any help here? I read F. A. Heitman was a local hardware tycoon. The house was designed by none other William Ward Watkin. Such a beautiful home, that was since demolished.
  20. wow! I was reading the newspaper The Texas Jewish Herald dated August 26, 1926 and came across a newspaper that included the address of Sid Westheimer. Edit: This is an Alfred C. Finn designed building! Dave Westheimer It is with regret the Houston community learns of the passing of Dave Westheimer. Mr. Westhimer came to Houston about five years ago and established himself in the drug business, making a host of friends. He is a brother of Sid, S.J., Adolph, and Max Westheimer all well known business men of Houston. He is survived by his widow; a son, Eugene Westheimer; a daughter, Mrs. Louis Waldvogel of Columbus, Texas; two grandchildren; six sisters, Mr. Rachel Gale of Houston, Misses Hermine and Elise Westheimer of Houston and Misses Frieda and Bertha Westheimer and Mrs. Dina Henningsen, who live in Germany. Funeral services were held at the home of his brother, Sid Westheimer, 3704 Montrose Boulevard, at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Rabbi Abraham Schechter conducted the services. Interment was in Adam Yeshurun Cemetery.
  21. 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.
  22. Pronto Cucinino is permanently closed. The property was being fenced this morning.
  23. 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).
