A Swamplot reader in motion along 290 sends photos of the late-stage demolition in progress on Exxon’s former Brookhollow campus, now down to its last office building at 4550 Dacoma St. Tear-down began on the structure last July after a partnership connected to Fidelis Realty Partners and Williamsburg Enterprises bought the 24-acre property just outside the Loop the year prior with plans to build a retail center on the site. The ruined 254,566-sq.-ft. structure is one of 3 office buildings that once stood on the campus.

A few more photos of the crumbling facility:

Swamplot’s Daily Demolition Report lists buildings that received City of Houston demolition permits the previous weekday.

It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, demolishing houses, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in construction that are over.
