  • St. Thomas expansion continues!

  • So glad to see the large house on West 43rd go. Its been a blight to the neighborhood for years. Despite, it being really ugly.

  • Sad to see that Colquitt place getting the axe.

  • Is the property listing for the place on 43rd supposed to be a joke?

  • Ryan – it used to be different and more… Honest

  • OK — now i’m intrigued.

  • That place on 43rd sits on a nearly 41,000 square foot lot. Looks like it sold in the half millionish range. I’d actually call that a bargain for that much land in Garden Oaks. Will be interesting to see what goes in. Hopefully something tasteful.

  • 7200 – 7800 lots with “tear downs” are happening in Oak Forest for half of what the 43rd Street property went for (it it was a half a million). 41K is a huge lot – even if you buy 2 adjacent “regular” lots in the area you can’t get something that big.
