The Komatsu has arrived at the doorstep of this 1941 bungalow at 1707 Holman St., in the southeast corner of Midtown. Once it disposes of the property, the excavator will work its way through another home abutting this one’s back yard — at 1706 Francis St. And once the land is clear, Jared Meadors and Tony Tripoli will start building this development of 6 close-but-not-touching townhouses fronting a long driveway extending all the way from Holman to Francis:
Under the name Medusa Properties, Meadors has renovated and saved from demolition a series of homes, duplexes, 4-plexes, 6-plexes, and 8-plexes in and around the Inner Loop. This Midtown development will be his first new-construction project in Houston, but not his first ever — Meadors says he and Tripoli got their start building houses in Atlanta — and not his first attempt to build new in town. Back in 2008, a variance Meadors needed to subdivide a corner lot occupied by an older building in Sunset Heights and build 3 new houses on it was denied by the planning commission.
