The lot on Scott St @ McGowen St in Houston's Third Ward has been on the market for a while. It's still on the market waiting to be sold.

Here are the
 latest marketing materials for the property zoned for commercial use.

First off, it's not "zoned commercial". Houston doesn't classify land that way. You can pretty much build anything you want there, including a giant residential structure.

 

The marketing materials are a laugh, using the 10 mile radius for the demographics. If they used a smaller circle, the income, etc would look pretty awful.

You don't say? I never knew that.

I wrote commercial because the lot is described as a commercial lot.

No, you wrote "for the property zoned for commercial use" which is clearly incorrect. Just take the (minor) L and move on.

I know what I wrote because the post is there. I can read. Yes, I wrote zoned BUT GOOD GRIEF you knew what I was referring to. The Loopnet listing and other listing refer to this lot as a commercial lot.

So sorry, no "L" for me and no reason to take it, though I know you and always negative Ross would love for me to.

With that, I leave you both with this parting gift as I block you and block Ross again for the umpteenth time...

The lot catty corner from this (NW corner of McGowen and Scott) was cleared recently - it was abandoned but 0 setback buildings

Judging by the new gas station at 45 and Scott, and the pad restaurant going next to that, I suspect that this will become a strip center.  What about this lot (east side of Scott)

Breaks my heart to be ignored by someone as astute as CrackpotandGrovel.

 

As to your question @cspwal it would be beneficial for that lot to become a decent small grocery store. The new HEB at 288 & MacGregor will be great for the Third Ward as a whole, but a smaller-footprint place could be very successful at McGowen & Scott.

 

Given the history of Houston, though, it's more likely to be a nail shop and a liquor store.
