The Palace Bowling Lanes building on Bellaire Blvd. (which picked up the new moniker Bowl on Bellaire about a year ago) appears to have been closed since Friday, says a reader who “showed up [Saturday] morning for the youth bowling league to find that the locks have been changed and they are not open for business.” Katherine Feser confirms this afternoon that the property is still closed, though a note on the door says the tenant can have new keys if and when all the delinquent rent is paid.
The 1960s building sits at the south end of its 2.8-acre lot hemmed in to the west by Uzi’s Auto Shop and Moeller’s Bakery; on the other side of the property is the former home of the Blair House apartments, cleared out last fall and now being built up as another piece of Trammell Crow’s Alexan apartment chain (though the development is these days going by Alexan Southside Place rather than stick-an-E-on-it Alexan Blaire House as originally announced).
