1212 Roberts

Recommended Posts

The old Gulf Cost Electric Supply Company warehouse at 1212 Roberts (at the corner of Polk and Roberts) is getting some work done - they have been gutting the interior the last couple of days.

 

Not sure what is being planned as there aren't any signs up on the property.  It has been vacant for a couple years

Was told it sold for close to $1.5MM and will be used for storage. Guessing the new owner will eventually redevelop.

Somebody posted on Nextdoor stating that they saw people bringing brewery equipment here. I’m not finding anything through Google, and HCAD isn’t showing anything on the recent transaction yet. 
 

Do we know who purchased this? New paint and the other work put into it seems excessive if it’s just going to be a storage facility.

I don't know anything about what is going in here - but they have added a new, striped parking lot with  iron fencing and landscaping.  

 

The last couple of days they have been replacing the wall on the back of the structure - definitely a lot of work going on...

 

I'll get a pic this weekend

I asked my local beer nerd friends about it and no one knew of a brewery. That doesn't mean it won't be one or will be one though.

If it is a storage facility, I hope it's a neat facility like the funky one built about a year or two ago not far from here.
