West Alabama & Kirby


Recommended Posts

I work near there and was curious if anyone had read or seen what is going to replace the Chevron on the corner? They've torn down the carwash as of Friday, but no signs of anything to come. There is already a Chase, Wachovia, and WaMu nearby, so hopefully it won't be yet another bank.

Here is a guess:

Starbucks!!

There isn't one on that particular intersection yet. You have to drive all the way to Shepherd/Alabama or Kirby/Nottingham to the nearest one. How awful is that?

Raising Cane's? No?

How 'bout the first upscale Krystal's?

Seriously, though, my guess is that they're probably just rehabbing the old Chevron.

I would be surprised. Marketing margins are in the toilet and this is a prime piece of real estate. There is also a Chevron station 300 ft down on Kirby (with the carwash). Note how many gas stations disappeared in the area over the last 3-5 years (Shell at Westheimer and Kirby, Texaco at Greenbriar and 59, Chevron at Westheimer and Shepherd, Chevron at Alabama and Montrose, etc etc - the list is long!). Considering land values, alternative uses of this land should be much more attractive than selling gasoline. But I have been wrong before ...

There is a chase bank across the street where the Ale House used to be. I guess this is going to be a drive thru.
