Does the green fence mean go? It looks like demolition is just a shot away for this westernmost building of the former Shell Technology Center. Lovett Homes has said it plans to build 39 3-story homes — scaling back after some Southside Place residents raised concerns at public hearings its original plan for 45 3.5-story ones — on the 3.2 acres here at the corner of Braes and Bellaire Blvd.
About a year ago, these 3.2 acres of the 3-building, 9.7-acre complex beneath the West U water tower went on the market. Shell moved its operations at the end of 2012 from here to a renovated headquarters 15 miles west at Hwy. 6 and Richmond Ave.
