What Building Is This

Recommended Posts

It's a pair of ragged 6 or so story buildings on the the Southwest Freeway - between the frontage road and Westpark. Next to the City of Houston Recycling center.

For years, it looked derelict, but over the last year or so, someone has slowly been fixing it up. Wondering if anybody knew what it was and what it is going to be?

Not sure if this is the one, but I seem to recall reading an article several years ago about those buildings and how they had issues keeping or even landing prospective tenants due to issues, chief among them, the location and the resulting smell...

Based on this 1990 article from the Chronicle, the properties haven't had the easiest of histories...
