3520 Center St. - Admiral Linen Site


Recommended Posts

Looks like the Admiral Linen facility (on 1.5+ blocks at Harvard/Center) is closing in January...just one block north of the new mixed use/H-E-B building at Buffalo Heights:

Salt Lake City-based Alsco Inc. recently informed the Texas Workforce Commission that it will close a central Houston facility, affecting 145 employees.

The facility is at 3520 Center St., according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act letter sent to the Texas Workforce. The job cuts will occur on Jan. 4.

Heh, just realized another full block at 3300 Washington is part of this sale...

That's a lot of large land tracts for sale in this immediate area. It's probably only a matter of time before HISD sells the old Harper School building at 3200 Center which is just the HISD construction office atm. I kind of wish someone would buy the main part of that campus for some kind of adaptive reuse. There's something about it I like.

Great find. Guess they are putting up all their properties. I've added the others to the Map under "On-The-Market, Potential Development, and Rumors"

I didn't realize there was a thread for this property prior to creating the other thread last month (a different address was in the title and within the post, so it didn't come up in the search at first). Reposting this throws off the flow of the thread (i.e. out of order),  still, it may be helpful for visitors to see what was previously discussed or shared before.

I wonder how much Admiral Linen is making on flipping the old recycling center.  They just parked a few trucks on that lot over the past few years since they bought it from the city.  That always seemed like an odd deal as it was pretty clear that it was just a matter of time until Admiral Linen relocated with property taxes soaring.

Looks as if BKR recently purchased the lot bounded by Washington, Lakin, Center, and Wichman. 

This was from the Buffalo Heights thread in going up.

Any word on what's going up here yet? Including the recycling center it looks like the footprint is pretty large.  Office, apartments, retail, homes, or a mix?

Unrelated but adjacent, I noticed the narrow, triangular-shaped lot along the south side of Hicks St. (between Harvard and Studemont) is being platted for approximately 90 lots. I think one of the railroads owned this trainwreck of a lot.

I was riding on Hicks St. to take pics at the new Coop project and found this, looks like they are ripping out old rail line spur that ended near Harvard St. I wonder if something might being going up or just getting it ready to be sold.

So Union Pacific railway continues to be ripped out by Hicks St. This line was no longer in use and was just like a parking rail, the main line is right next to it. I wonder if they are prepping this land to sell or going to repair the rail line for use? The ripped out section is from Studemont to Harvard St. I'm leaning toward them selling this thin slice of land.
