Porsche of River Oaks

I want to NIMBY it since this is my exit but it'll be better than that "lumber" yard. That place has become a dump and vagrant hangout.

Don't forget about the Magic Island building.

I knew the lumber yard's days were numbered and I, for one, will miss it.  It was old school and had everything I needed.  Home Depot is no substitute.  Given the land value, it was only a matter of time.

The site is becoming Porsche of River Oaks. Stahlman Lumber closed yesterday (2-28-2020). Saw the sign on the drive home today.

Wow, I had not heard that. There's a million (ok, slight exaggeration... half a million) Porsches in the inner city. I know my wife has to drive to Momentum Porsche way out the SW Fwy. She will be thrilled to hear this.

 

I used to drive by Stahlman at least twice a day when I lived in Southampton. I'll have to make a point and drive by soon.

 

Thanks for sharing and updating us!

Last week I noticed the "marquee" on the front of Stahlman Lumber (facing Greenbriar) read that it was moving to Stafford. It seems appropriate to have a Porsche dealership in that location. There are several Porsche's in West U. and Southampton and many, many Audis. I wonder who patronizes the Porsche dealership way out the North Freeway. People in the Woodlands perhaps.

cloud, are you talking about Clark's Hardwood Lumber Co. at 700 E. 5-1/2 Street? There is also Houston Hardwoods at 4910 W. 34th. These are not traditional "lumber stores" where one gets Southern yellow pine 2x4s etc. They have more exotic species generally. Years ago there was another specialty lumber store (also in the Heights IIRC) called All Woods/Schroeder. The corporation was dissolved in July of 1991.

I visited All Woods Schroeder and Houston Hardwoods to get certain species for projects. They had/have some wonderful stuff. When I was a child living with my parents a neighbor was a buyer for All Woods Schroeder. He made many trips to South America and a few to Africa.

I live in upper Kirby and drive all the way to Porsche north Houston because Sonic dealerships are the worst. I’ve bought 7 Porsches since 2007. Sonic is so bad I’ll drive 15 miles up 45 to avoid them.

Also Porsche of North Houston is awesome and now is attached to the Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, McLaren dealership.

Yeah, Clarks. Ive only been once, but they had what we needed when doing some cabinet work trying to match the right wood/grain.

Article with rendering.

https://communityimpact.com/houston/heights-river-oaks-montrose/impacts/2020/03/11/stahlman-lumber-co-closes-longtime-greenbriar-location-to-make-way-for-porsche-dealership/

Quote

Stahlman Lumber Co. closed down its business operations at 4007 Greenbriar Drive, Houston, as of Feb. 28 and was in the process of moving out in early March. The company, based in Houston for over 75 years, operates another lumber yard at 13913 Greenland Drive, Stafford. The lumber company sold its Greenbriar location to North Carolina-based Sonic Automotive in 2017, county records show, and signs posted at the location show renderings of a Porsche River Oaks dealership. A request for comment from Sonic Automotive was not returned. The 2.4-acre site was valued at $9.3 million by the Harris County Appraisal District in 2019. 281-499-1611.

That's a little disappointing. I know most of these dealerships aren't exactly paragons of design, but that she's a little...sad
