Swamplot’s Daily Demolition Report lists buildings that received City of Houston demolition permits the previous weekday.

Making a second or late appearance on the city’s permit report: a block of the Katy Freeway cleared several years ago.

  • That’s such a cool building…why are they tearing it down?

  • If the map link is correct for 59 Diner, it was demo’d a long time ago, apparently. I have driven by there regularly for the past two years and never saw that building there before. Maybe they’re doing site work?

  • Gus stated above that this block of the Katy Fwy was cleared several years ago.

    I’m still wondering why the permit office is so tardy in reporting some demolitions.

  • There’s a 59 diner about four miles west down I-10, is that their “new” location?
