Here’s a parking-lot view — what you’d see from Yale St. — of a 125,000-sq.-ft. strip development planned for the site of San Jacinto Stone, immediately north of the Washington Heights Walmart going up just south of I-10. San Jacinto Stone measures its stoneyard at 4 acres; the proposed 8-acre development taking over for it appears to include a few adjacent properties to the north, including frontage along the new I-10 feeder road and White Oak Bayou.

A tipster reports that the stone company has agreed to sell the property, and also claims that LA Fitness, Bed Bath & Beyond, Fresh Market, and DSW Shoes will somehow all be tenants of the new development — but that may more likely turn out to be someone’s wish list. The long 2-story, east-facing building depicted in the rendering of the Yale Street Market may or may not jibe exactly with the site plan, which shows a rooftop parking garage in addition to a vast lot accessible from Yale and a pad site at the corner of Yale and Koehler:
