Westheimer Transfer And Storage Company On South Main St.

Recommended Posts


This neverbuilt building for the Westheimer Transfer and Storage Company!! Beautiful architecture. Too bad it was never built. At least, not to my knowledge.

From the newspaper The Texas Jewish Herald dated March 29, 1928.

8-Story Furniture Repository

Plans are being prepared by Hedrick & Gottlieb, local architects, for this elaborate eight-story furniture redepository to be built at Main and Rosewood for Ben S. Hurwitz and Associate at cost of approximately $200,000.

Hurwitz and Associates will build on South Main

A $250,000 eight-story reinforced concrete brick and stone repository building for the Westheimer Transfer and Storage Company is planned on the northwest corner of Main Boulevard and Rosewood.

Work will start within 60 days, Sam L. Bloomberg, vice president of the transfer company, said Saturday--

The late S.J. Westheimer, founder of the company, often had planned to build a modern repositroy in the semi-residence section of Houston, Mr. Bloomberg said--

The building and grounds are designed by George S. Kingsley of New York. Hedrick & Gottlieb are the local architects.
