A new green-screened construction fence has gone up around the perimeter of the Central Square Plaza building at 2100 Travis St., a reader reports. But the barricades aren’t an indication of impending renovation or demolition work on the long-vacant property. They’re part of an effort to secure the buildings and keep taggers and other would-be occupiers out.
A source tells Swamplot that no decision has been made yet on the future of the 1-acre site on the Midtown block surrounded by Travis, Milam, Webster, and Gray streets. An entity controlled by Claremont Property Company owner Keeley Megarity purchased the property, which consists of a 12-story and a 14-story office building and a 6-level parking garage, last spring, after floating plans for a redo of the 1950s-era buildings.
