It seems the site of the old Marquee Apartments on McCue right across Westheimer from the Galleria was sold. There's already a really basic idea of what's going to go up there:

They are saying it's going to be a 237 unit apartment building.

This is the same company responsible for Millenium Greenway, that new-ish apartment building that wraps around the Chevron station at Wesleyan and 59.

The site is the one that backs up to the 2200 Post Oak site.

These cookie cutter apartments are becoming just as ubiquitous as 24hr check cashing places and the strip malls in which they reside. Ugh.

I'd much prefer these apartments then a strip mall.

If I lived in them, I could walk to everything I would ever need. The place I'm moving to only has a Target, Subway, & a Freebirds in walking distance, and it's in the loop!

in a semi related story, i used to live at 2320 mccue Carriage Square and a guy bought those and really fixed that place up and it looks amazing...he also purchased The Marquis next door and is now redoing those as well! Mccue is really shaping up! (I still live on mccue by the way...)

The site notice says they will be finished in April of 2013, while the big sign says Fall 2012. :huh:

And the Marquee West continues to look like crap:

I've got $20 that says that it's demolished within 5 years to make room for another one of these cookie cutter high end apartment places.

This is across the street from where the old McCue homestead was located. The McCue home was a single story wood structure with wide porches facing both Westheimer and McCue, and set back from the corner. There were large oak trees lining the property and the driveway, leading up to the house. Apartments had completely filled in both sides of the street by the middle of the 60's. (Mr. & Mrs. McCue were rewarded quite handsomely for their property)

I love to interject my random historical comments to these types of threads, because I can, and the moderaters let me. :)

i wanted to add two things...

1st, the old Marquee west is not called Marquee Uptown i believe but its looking fantastic as the new owner has completely remodeled all units, the lobby and pool area as well as the grounds in general...(this is also the owner of adjacent Carriage Square which he also updated and looks much better)

2nd, the new parking structure(?) of 2525 mccue seems to be shoved almost directly next to the Dominion's infinity pool area...i wonder how that is being received haha!

Liking your blog a lot Jessie, nice updates.

Thanks! I'm hoping it'll be a good one-stop shop informational resource, of course for construction updates and some other pertinent information.

man this place is really coming along and looks to be finished any month now... but wow the units on the ground floor that ARE finished have teeny tiny living rooms and bedrooms...it will be interesting to see if that is the norm or if there are floor plans with larger rooms....

Sorry, fates, unfortunately it looks like I won't be able to get by until later tonight after it's dark. :/ I'm going to talk a long walk around the area this weekend and get everything properly documented - including one or two places we seem to have forgotten completely about. I'll be sure to get quite a few pics of it then. ;)

A few days late, but here are the promised pictures. Only two, because there's only really three angles to photograph this thing from, and one of them is just covered in a black tarp:
