A Swamplot reader writes in with a report on the aftermath of last night’s collapse of a top-story section of the very long parking garage for the One Riverway office building north of the Galleria, on S. Post Oak just south of Riverway Dr. No one was hurt in the accident, which occurred before 8 pm, but abc13 reports that vehicles were still exiting the structure at that time. S. Post Oak Ln. is now closed to traffic while officials determine if the concrete structure is safe, and workers are already mourning the lost parking spaces.
Writes Porchman: “One Riverway tenants are parking in the Three Riverway garage which also houses the self-park for the Omni Hotel. The parking is close to maxed out at this point. All contract and visitor entrances for One and Three are closed from South Post Oak Lane, so all traffic must enter and leave via the Omni driveway. This is causing much confusion, congestion, and consternation.” Porchman’s photo (above and zoomed-in below) was taken from the One Riverway office building, looking south along S. Post Oak.
