The Crossing at Midtown (606 Dennis)

Recommended Posts

I'm a little confused. The Oxberry Group link lists the address as 605 Dennis, but the Shop Company link has it at 606 Dennis.
(The building at 606 Dennis is a video game service company, and has been in the same name for more than 30 years, per HCAD.)

Geez that place is a dump then if that's the case. You would think they would at least look more appealing.

I think HCAD is wrong here. The property at 606 Dennis looks to have been transferred via a post probate action in 2003 to the current owners. The documents available on the County Clerks site show the current owners having different names that what HCAD has. I've found that it is often necessary to check the County Clerk's site for the last word on some of these properties. There's no sign of any recent sales, though.

 

605 Dennis would be across the street, and isn't a valid address. However, there is a property at 605 Drew, the lot that backs on to 606 Dennis. The Shop Companies page shows the development is 20,000 sq ft, which could be the 10,000 sq feet on Dennis, the 5000 at 605 Drew, and the 5000 sq ft at 2703 Smith, the corner of Smith and Drew on this block. I don't see any recent filings that indicate sales, but that doesn't mean much.

Think about if the city had already eliminated parking mins in Midtown and Eado. This is getting ridiculous. There is a ton of off street parking and the neighborhood is fully walkable.

I noticed a variance request the other day. I'll try to get a picture soon unless someone beats me to it.

Couldn't find this site but the old H.A.Franz building and some of the surrounding block is being transformed into new retail spots. Merge if necessary. 30+ years ago when I worked in the video gaming industry I used to go here for parts.

Yes merge this, I guess I didn't look well enough to see there was already a topic. I was for looking for a Smith St. listing. Didn't realize till I got home it was on Dennis till after I posted this.

And look at that; the market working as it should. Midtown gets less parking than would have previously been required, while the Cannon way out past the Beltway gets plenty of parking regardless of requirements.

Wow this is awesome! I drove through town last nite from my new spot on Airline. I went through Midtown and Montrose and let me just say that I was very impressed with how well this city is coming together. The Drewery is going to set an incredible standard for Midtown development and with the parking mins lifted, you can only imagine just how dense and urban these parts of the city will become.

Unfortunately he(?)'s branched out. 
Sorry, still can't find my camera, but 2403 Caroline (at McIlhenny) was tagged over the weekend.
