  • That building on Rusk used to be a La Quinta?

  • I wondered that too, Drew.

    Perhaps La Quinta bought the property for a new hotel.

  • Ugh. Almost 50% of today’s residential properties are in Oak Forest.

  • 1515 Rusk was never a La Quinta, nor is it planned to be one. Swamplot continues to report incorrect information.

  • KateyK,

    Please tell us about it. What will it be?

  • I’ve been following Swamplot for quite a long time, pre-recession to be exact. This is my first time to ever comment and I feel the need to since this good blog hasn’t been reporting very accurate information recently. First off, it is widely known that a Hampton Inn/Hyatt is going in on this Rusk property… there’s no La Quinta. The other bit that I still don’t understand why it hasn’t been corrected is that it is also widely known that the old Central Bank Building is undergoing renovations for residential and/or commercial use… a fence was not simply put up to keep people out but to protect people while they remove the tiles off of portions of the outside walls.

  • A 14-Story Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites for one half of the block and a 11-Story Hyatt Place for the other half.

  • Perhaps one of you could check the online sold permits with the City of Houston. I used to be able to access their permits site but am no longer able to.

    The name of the person/business who purchased the demolition permit will be on the permit.
