Why, thank you TJones! :)

I haven't been to Houston in many years and am sorry to hear Westwood is no longer. How long has it been gone?

Since about 1992 or 93. Anyone else have a different timeframe ?

How about Sharpstown Mall, still around or bit the dust? I've heard it's very dangerous there. Friend of mine in Houston refuses to shop there.

We should be so lucky as to have that mall bite the dust. As of yet, it hasn't happened, but Macy's is pulling out, so the rest should be turned into a flea market by say October ?

Sorry to hear that. Back in the day, had lots of great 'retail therapy' at Sharpstown.

Um yeah, how about like 1997 or 1998. Westwood was still a bustling mall in 1994 when I moved to Alief.

Oh you know jgriff too?

The sold out and it became the West Houston Technology Center. Interesting that they changed out the rest of the mall but kept the Sears part intact.

I've been in there, and it's pretty nice. Basically an indoor office park with a food court. Probably the best conversion of a mall I've ever seen.

They have good eats nearby (well, just Timmy Chan's).

Head north to Bellaire for good asian food. There's a Pappa's just down the street on as well as an Olive Garden, Saltgrass, Sam's Boat and others on with 59.

For a second I thought that the Midtown Sears -> Innovation Hub project had taken a sharp turn

it was after that. maybe anchor tenants (and other tenants) had dropped at that time, but it was still a mall, with a food court and all that stuff in the early 90s.
