A handful of curious neighbors and passers-by have written Swamplot with reports that the Crossing at Kirby Apartments at 7600 Kirby Dr. are being cleared out. “It appears the whole complex is about to be demolished,” writes one correspondent who snooped around the 5.76-acre compound that stretches from South Main to a gas station short of S. Braeswood. “Looks like they’re disconnecting electrical and there was one U-Haul truck but it’s otherwise abandoned,” writes another. “Apartment windows are boarded and one building looks like the roof has started to be stripped.” Gee, what could be happening here?
The 15-building complex (plus a clubhouse and 2 laundromats) was purchased last September by an entity connected to the Dinerstein Companies, developers of the Millennium Greenway and Millennium High Street, apartment buildings, plus 2 Millennium-branded complexes in The Woodlands, and 3 more in California. Dinerstein doesn’t appear to have made public its plans for this location, but it’s likely working on a Millennium Kirby — that’s the name of the LLC that made the property purchase.
