River Oaks Baptist Conversion of Unemployed Former Walgreen’s Site Now Underway

Demolition of former Walgreen's at 3900 Westheimer Rd., Highland Village, Houston, 77027

The walls and roof of the former Walgreen’s at 3900 Westheimer Rd. are now being teased apart into the tangle above, following the issuance last week of a demolition permit for the 1975 structure. River Oaks Baptist School bought the property in April of last year, around the time Walgreen’s jumped eastward across the intersection of Westheimer and Weslayan/Willowick to inhabit the former Fresh Market space (where it now operates next to what turned out to be a Texas Emergency Care Center neighboring the River Oaks branch of Mattress Firm).

Here’s another angle on the teardown, with the 1963 Willowick Condominiums tower peeking over the scene in the background:

  • I wonder if they still plan to use the land for a parking garage and/or alternate entrance. Seems like a waste of primo Westheimer frontage to me, but whatever. If they build a garage, would they let Highland Village shoppers use it on the weekends? The old Walgreen’s had about 25-30 parking spaces that will be missed.

  • putting those property tax deductions to good work, aye
