After a bit of coffee on the side patio of the Black Hole Coffee House at 4504 Graustark St., a sighting of bright green sewer-disconnect notices on the front doors of 3 ninety-something-year-old houses across the street, and a little online permit research, reader Christopher Newsom has some news to announce: The homes at 1304, 1308, and 1310 Castle Ct. (pictured above and below) are about to be demolished. According to HCAD records, the same owner has owned all 3 properties for more than 25 years.
“Black Hole’s side patio is about to get a radically altered view,” Newsom notes. Together, the 3 side-by-side properties — one in from the corner of Graustark — sit on 18,550 sq. ft. of land across from the soon-to-be-demolished Place Apartments
