HAIF - Houston's original social media

1111 Studewood et. al.


Recommended Posts

This property (directly behind Someburger), and its 2 adjacent properties to the west, have been vacant since I moved to Norhill 6 years ago. I queried PPNA about what they might know was planned for the property some time last year and the last post indicated the property was contaminated due to a dry cleaner occupying it some time ago.

I recently contacted Harris County and the City to obtain any information they might have about the alleged contamination and received letters from both indicating there was no record in their files about contamination.

So who determines if a property is contaminated? Why would the City and County not know if it were?

How can I find out how contaminated the property is and what that means to me as a nearby homeowner?

The property was sold to Natchez Properties LLC during this 6 year period and I have done a little research to try to find out what is planned there. This company, among many others (Airline Investments, Buffet, Inc., Pacemaker Homes, San Saba, Corp., L.P. Investments, Inc.), is connected to Joe F. Wheat.

Anyone have an idea about how I should approach finding out about the contamination and the plans for the property?

Thanks, I am a new poster but have visited this forum many times and appreciate all of the information and opinions offered.

There are way too many entities competing over environmental causes IMO. Between the City of Houston, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), collecting information gets to be quite a chore. And they don't make it easy either--their websites are not laid out in a way that makes obtaining data easy unless you know exactly what you're looking for or are a knowledgable environmental consultant. Good luck.

The property is contaminated. It was a drycleaners years ago, and to get building permits the top 24" has to come off. Wheat has told me he is holding to sell to highest bidder.

In addition, the neighborhood in the area is extremely vigorous, and active, and has successfully affected the commercial development in the area. As such, I don't anticipate anything with a "less than extremely friendly" attitude about building in the Heights will be met with a warm reception at that location.

Question. Does or has any one lived in this type of condo, with a ground floor restaurant. Are there odors in your apt or balcony? I realize the vent hood would be placed on the rooftop of course. I would hope by code at least those built now. :blush:

I guess there wasn't much celebration on here when this one completed. Looks like a 1980's medical office in Schenectady, New York.

Yeah, I went with Schenectady. Effing Albany gets all the fancy stuff...
