This wobbly 108-year-old house in Midtown, remodeled in 1999, might be fixed up one more time and converted into a bar. Or it might be demolished to make room for something new, says the reader who sends this photo and word of a recently secured TABC license for the so-called Sterling House here at 3015 Bagby St., just 1 block north of Elgin. The 1905 2,850-sq.-ft. house, sitting on a 4,918-sq.-ft. lot at the corner of Bagby and Rosalie, changed hands back in 2009, but it appears to have been waiting around for something to happen since then.
Whether punched up or built from scratch, the new bar would be a very short walk away for those young professionals soon to be living in the under-construction 5-story Pearl Midtown apartment complex on the block bound by Rosalie, Elgin, Smith, and Louisiana.
