Squatters and street artists might have to find another bygone building to pick on — but that’s only assuming there’s something really behind the renderings of renovations to Midtown’s Central Square Plaza that Claremont Property has been floating around. Could that demure stone mosaic on the wall facing Webster finally get its comeuppance after years of playing hard to get?
Well, nothing’s certain yet. But Claremont did go to the trouble of producing this second rendering, plants and all, of a renovated entrance from the building’s south side. Earlier this month a Swamplot reader noticed signs trying to sell the complex, comprising 12- and 14-story office buildings and a parking garage, which has been entangled in back-and-forth legal skirmishes between the City of Houston and owner Alfred J. Antonini for the last few years.
