Trammell Crow seems to be planning another of its Alexan-brand apartments here — at the southwest corner of the Katy Fwy. and Wilcrest Rd. This would be about 9 miles west of Trammell Crow’s so-called Alexan Silber at 7777 Katy Fwy. This photo from a reader shows what remains of the Phillips 66 station, one of the structures on the site bound on the south by Lasso Ln. that the reader says the Wilchester Homeowners Association has learned will be demolished; the station’s underground tanks are already being torn up.
In addition, says the reader, the La Quinta Inn at 11113 Katy Fwy. will go, and the closed Steak & Ale restaurant, and the smallish strip center where the Nosegay Wilcrest Flower Shop is. (You can see that in the photo below.) As many as 400 units — both apartments and townhomes, apparently — could be built.
This proposed development would be nearly adjacent to the Wilchester Elementary School facing Yorkchester Dr. and less than a mile from the rental townhomes proposed to be built on the north side of the freeway at the old RoomStore site on Brittmoore.
