Demo crews are clearing away a metal warehouse building and chopping up the surface concrete on the block surrounded by Dowling, Rusk, Capitol and St. Charles streets, across Dowling St. from BBVA Compass Stadium in East Downtown. Last year, Mill Creek Residential announced and then canceled plans for a possibly mixed-use apartment development it was calling EADO Station on that block and the one immediately north, facing Texas Ave.
Instead, an entity controlled by Dallas apartment developers JLB Partners purchased both blocks in January, but that company has not announced its plans for the sites. JLB Partners is possibly best known in Houston as the developer of the ill-fated Axis Apartments on West Dallas St., which burned to the ground back in March. The company recently announced it intends to rebuild apartments at that Montrose location.
