Another Piece of Westbury Square Comes Down

Demolition of Westbury Square, West Bellfort Ave. Near Chimney Rock Rd., Westbury, Houston, 77035

Demolition began yesterday on one of the 11 remaining structures of Westbury Square at Chimney Rock Rd. and W. Belfort Ave., according to a post on the Westbury Civic Club’s Facebook page. The post indicates that the first building on the chopping block was one damaged by fire in 2010, but that the rest were not scheduled by the owners to meet their unmakers on Tuesday.

An agent for Camelot Realty Group told HBJ last July that the run-down 1960s shopping plaza was under contract by the Villas at Westbury Square, and that the buildings were slated for demolition at the start of last August to make way for more than 100 townhomes (or maybe a commercial development, depending on how things went). A Swamplot commenter noted, however, that the buildings were still standing in early January.

  • That was a fun place. Too bad all that crap around it killed it. It should have been in Rice Village.

  • I went to the Little Red School House when it was in Westbury Square. ,back in the 1960’s… My parents took myself and my brothers to Westbury Square back in the day. It was so cool-like being in Europe. The architecture /layout,etc., was unlike anything in Houston. Those were the days. Now we have generic,sterile,look-a-like copy cat malls /shopping centers.. Boring,post modern design that is bland and blah ….
