Does anybody know what’s planned for 2077 S Gessner? Bracing for another apartment complex…
there seem to be an increasing number of tear downs in Meyerland. I assume this is a result of the spring floods (that area was increasing in knockdowns before that too though).
I dont know whats planned but if it turns out to be a apartment complex we can only hope that some of the older apartments in the area start to become demo targets.
@htownproud — I’d say yes. A lot of folks that had their homes paid for didn’t have flood insurance, from what I recall of news coverage at the time, and with the costs required to build up vs. a straight rebuild, they’re taking the value of the lot and going. Different scenario from Allison when several were able to rebuild and stay, which is a shame. Drove through there one night last week and it was dark/like several homes were still empty.
