I assume this would be the lot on the NW corner that has the Stop and Shop, Pinks and Dry Cleaners?

There is no record for the property that would be 700-712 West Gray on HCAD that I can find...

Also (maybe related) something I have been curious about, Cecils (600 W Gray just east of Stanford) has had a for sale sign up for a month or so now. Asking the bartenders they say they can't talk about it.

There was a piece in the Chron about this a couple of months ago:

I could swear I saw another piece somewhere about its imminent closure, but I can't find any reference to that now, so I may be mistaken. I was never really a serious regular at Cecil's, but I hung out there occasionally back in the day and remember its sister/predecessor establishment Blythe Spirits well. It would be a shame if a sale results in something else replacing it.

Damn that sucks. Let's just hope they reopen. 

 

The article ended on a hopeful note saying the owners plan to reopen sometime "next year". But that's about as vague as it gets.

Looks more damaged than destroyed to me, especially considering that the owners say they're planning on reopening early next year.
At least Channel 2's website got the location right. On their 5:00 news broadcast tonight, it was identified as a downtown restaurant.

I am not sure how damaged it was by the fire...but they completely gutted out that main building show above...drove by there recently and the whole floor was even removed...so this portion at least is going to be brand new! it looks nice! miss that place
