Earlier today, we introduced the first category in this yearâ€™s Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate, celebrating best and most this city has to offer. And now nominations are open in a second category: Best Demolition.
Sure, demolitions are raw, physical acts, but emotional, historical, cultural, artistic, literary, sonic, and ecological aspects are often hard at work too. What property would you honor as Houstonâ€™s Best Demo of 2011 â€” and why?
If youâ€™re like most people and have a little trouble remembering buildings once theyâ€™re gone, you can scroll through Swamplotâ€™s archive of demolition stories to refresh your memory. Then add your thoughtful and well-argued nominations for this coveted award to the comments section below â€” or send them in a private message to Swamplot HQ. For a more thorough description of the nominating process, see these instructions.
Nominations for both award categories announced today will remain open until midnight this Sunday, December 11. But why wait until the last minute to submit your nominations? Could you knock a few out now?
