Daily Demolition Report: Johnson Shortage

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

No, these aren’t the last. Many more will disappear later.

  • Does anybody know what the Land Assemblage Redevelopment Authority’s plan is with all these lots?

  • That Johnson Controls building has been down for a few weeks now. In fact, I recall it being just the front ten feet or so a few weeks a go and a bunch of COH Planning guys walking around. Did they tear it down w/o a permit?

    Also, heard it’s going to be a McDonalds. Which nicey complements the one in the Walmart an exit west.

  • Another McDonald’s? Couldn’t they have at least put in a Starbucks or Burger King? There is no master plan for this city.

  • I am not sure if you are joking or not, but no master plan can control whether Starbucks wants a site or not…

  • Starbucks wouldn’t be that useful, there’s one in the Kroger (and one on Yale, and one in the Target). Pei Wei’s and Spec’s are my wishlist.

    Specifically (no pun intended) I want a Spec’s like the Memorial Park one (now deceased, no pun again) where there was a liquor store and a beer, wine & food store, so at least part was open on Sundays.

  • Too bad your wish list doesn’t include a title loans store, a nail salon, a gold and silver buyers, and a pay by the month wireless store. You’d probably get at least 3 out of four is that was the case!

  • Mattresses. Mattresses everywhere…
