I am sure this is somewhere on the going up, but I couldn't find it. Does anyone know how tall the new complex will be? I would guess Avalon Diner will be next to go.

I hope that building gets developed into something, residential or mixed-use. This area of town is booming with projects.

 

The antique building looks incredibly outdated in comparison to the developments around it, I'd love to see it get torn down.

will be interesting if they ask to decommission that part of Cameron St. that is at the back end of the property. Not exactly of any use anymore. Probably better to turn that into a smaller alley way into whatever garage they will put under the building.

 I have never heard of that street. I need to drive by! I think the apartments next door use it to access their garage, so I can't imagine it being abandoned.

So after closer inspection it looks like there is a back road from the apartment complex that attaches to this small part of Cameron St. When going into google street view it seems even a couple houses use this as a back entrance!

 

So thats why I think maybe it would be better to just decommission it as a full street and make it a smaller access alleyway.

Too bad no GFR.  That’s a long-term detriment to the neighborhood.

It’s walking distance to lots of retail, including West Ave.

I get that this is within walking distance from retail, but Westheimer is a retail/commercial corridor and, in my opinion, any time a developer chooses not to embrace and enhance that fact is a loss.  For example:  Compare AMLI River Oaks at Waugh & West Gray (no GFR) to the new Mid Main development and the already-established Post Midtown Square, both in Midtown and both with GFR.  The AMLI has zero character and creates a “dead zone” along the West Gray corridor, whereas the two Midtown developments really add life and energy to their neighborhood.  The comparison is stark.
