IronTiger Posted May 24, 2015 Share Posted May 24, 2015 http://www.houstondeco.org/1930s/sears.htmlI stand corrected... Rice University now owns the land. link/ web site was year 2014. Cite 67 has a nice article on the building, as well. Says the original structure was built with a granite exterior, backed with concrete on the bottom floor, stucco exterior for the second floor.That's the website where the rumor started (though with the new REIT Sears spun off recently, not 100% sure). I know for a fact that they also own(ed) the land that Fiesta sits on, newspaper archives mention that it was developed as a sort of supermarket component of Sears, with the main store getting an interior facelift during that time.
