RocketSci Posted November 12, 2015 Share Posted November 12, 2015 Land is being cleared on the North side Richmond between Hazard and Woodhead, including the former Shell station and at least one of the older brick houses/apartments along the block. It looks like King Cole is still open, however. The block will be filled with a new self-storage facility. Further down and across the street, the last of the old Lucky Burger building at Richmond and Mandell has been flattened, and is being hauled off in a dumpster (probably to add 6 more parking spots for Rev-El-Ry). Except in front of the new apartments, narrow broken cobblestone sidewalks and mud make much of the street barely walkable. Dunlavy between Richmond and the HEB is a crater-filled mess, crowded with cars and pedestrians driven from the adjacent broken and muddy water-filled sidewalks. I had such hopes a decade ago that one day Richmond would become a walkable street with pedestrian-friendly businesses, but even if the infrastructure gets fixed some day there will be fewer actual destinations to walk to.
