What’s happening to this brick office building on West Dallas, just east of Dunlavy? The Houston Business Journal‘s Jennifer Dawson reports it’s getting an energy-conscious renovation — overseen by Bailey Architects, designer of the original building in the early eighties.
The West Dallas building used to house local advertising firm Sachnowitz & Co. The vacant site of the former Aquarium Lounge is next door.
Early next year, the Royal Norwegian Consulate General will be moving in. The consulate general currently occupies offices in a tower on Allen Parkway.

RIP Aquarium Lounge. =(
In the meantime, there’s quite the rehab going on in one of the old warehouses in that wakefield/golf/fisher/alba district in not-quite Garden Oaks. Specifically, at the corner of Golf and Fisher. Anyone know what’s afoot?
I miss the Aquarium Lounge. Maybe the Norwegian Consulate will build a new bar there, and call it the Herring Hall. Oh, wait, that’s taken at Rice…
