UsLiving/Vero Sade needs to hurry up and demo the 3 remaining houses and 2 garage apartments. Vagrants have moved in to the garage apartment behind Bacco's Wine bar. They were redecorating as I walked by. Last week I saw an online report of a break in at the old hair salon next to it. Bacco's closed several weeks ago. There are at least 3 COH yellow warning signs of discrepancies for trash removal, graffiti, weeds and to remove the old bus.

From yesterday. Chainlink is up all around, cops were called out once again to clear out the vagrants before they closed it up. There will be two gates one on Marshall St. next to  the alley and one on Kipling St. into the old London Hair Salon parking area.

Saw a HPD officer here once again. I stoped and talked with him, he said he has been here 12 times and arrested some of the vagrants. As we were talking one of the vagrants he has already kicked out walked up but didn't go in this time. I saw the guy when I walked by a couple days ago. They haven't installed the gates yet. Officer said these buildings will have to have asbestos abatement before they demo them which will require permits. I showed him the render of what they are building. Yesterday I saw a truck that was here to pick up the one trash dumpster but he couldn't get in since the only access to it has crepe myrtles growing in front of the gate opening.

  • The title was changed to 36-Story Multifamily High-Rise At 3615 Montrose Blvd.

Saw the guy installing the SWPPP sign so I stoped to talk with him. He said they will be tearing up the sidewalks and after that they can put the silt screens around the site. He said he will be coming by here for the next several weeks to verify.

There are only 4 buildings remaining on the property, Google maps shows more but the one facing Marshall is already gone and the one behind it is too. More demo permits have been let for those remaining.

Guess who flagged the future 36 story apartments.

1 house down 2 more to go, the old London Underground Salon and the Bacco Wine Bar plus 2 garage apartments. Crackheads are just going over the fence now trying to scavenge whatever they can find.

They also moved the school bus.

When this gets built and the Skanska Westmont is built it's going to look a lot like Post Oak Blvd. or downtown and really confuse the suburbanites. That is the old Bacco's Wine Bar coming down.

All the buildings are gone. London Underground Salon on the right and Bacco's Wine Bar to the left. It's amazing that something that has stood for decades can come down in just a matter of a few hours.

909 and 911 Kipling St. in one big pile. The alley way is the boundary of the property to the east.

I'm guessing these huge oak trees will have to come down, their roots are making the sidewalk almost unwalkable.

Large bike storage room *fans self*

That would seem like an amenity that would attract potential residents. Far better than humping the bike down the elevator, apologizing to all and sundry. It's even better if they have a bike vise available for maintenance.

The density is getting real! 

Now I really wish the Disco Kroger development was something more than a wrap. At least the former Mattress Firm/Specs/Half Price Books location should also be a sustainable development. But if the Disco Kroger location would have also been a high rise, it would really have a nice affect on the area.
