Cornelius Nursery Uprooting from Energy Corridor Location


Last chance for those seeking to buy pansies, raspberry bushes and fig trees near the corner of N. Dairy Ashford Dr. and the Katy Fwy, as the location of Cornelius Nursery that has stood there for decades is closing down in a matter of days. “Most likely on the fourth,” an employee says, but possibly as early as Friday.

The nursery and parking lot sprawl across about 3 acres of Energy Corridor land at 1200 N. Dairy Ashford Dr. According to online property records, Calloway’s Inc., the nursery company with which Cornelius merged, sold the property to an entity called 1200 North Dairy Ashford LLC earlier this month.

Two Swamplot readers heard differing tales regarding the property’s fate:




“I asked one of the workers if they knew what was going in and they said apartments,” says one reader. A second was told that the nursery would make way for “yet another office tower.”
