Milby Junction (Harrisburg at Milby)

Recommended Posts

Redevelopment planned for the old Rex Supply building on Harrisburg at Milby. This is near the Second Ward/Coffee Plant stop on METRO Green Line light rail. Looks to be mixed-use retail with plans for a three story garage.

 

Definitely would be a welcome addition near the Sampson/York corridor.

Special thanks to Swamplot for finding this (or at least making me aware of it lol)

Heard that this fell through and is no longer happening. Pour one out :(

 

I drove by this site yesterday and noticed that the Rex Supply signage is down, so I’m assuming it is officially closed and the building is now unoccupied. 

 

However, the Hunington signs advertising the new “development”—and not a lease of the existing building—were still up on both buildings as well as a sign at the corner of Milby and Harrisburg.

 

I know the link above is inoperative, but are we 100% sure that this is dead?

Stumbled upon this by mistake when trying to look up my own HCAD account, but it looks like someone snuck in and purchased the Rex Supply Building earlier this year: Westgreen Blue Willow, Ltd. HCAD mailing address maps back to the corporate office of Lovett Commercial (1520 Oliver St. HTX)

Good find!


Lovett Commercial does well when it comes to rehabbing older buildings of this size. I'm glad to see them expand their footprint in the East End.

Good point. I know we like to give Lovett a hard time about dragging their feet on larger projects like the old Houston Post building and Post HTX, but a smaller scale project like this should be easier to turn around in a more timely manner.

 

Or, they’ll just sit on it for an extended amount of time with no activity. Honestly could go either way.

Variance Request up at this address. Can someone explain what “unrestricted reserve” means?

From the city...

 

Quote

Many plats may include tracts platted as unrestricted or restricted reserves. An unrestricted reserve can be any commercial or non-single-family residential application (i.e. retail center, apartment, office building). A restricted reserve is for non single-family residential purposes but designates the use for the property. An owner can sell off pieces of a reserve but cannot sell off pieces of a single family plat.
