The little swatchÂ of test facade tilted up at 7551 Main St. north of Brays Bayou earlier this spring is still standing, a reader’s drive-by snapÂ attests this week. The piece, which shows off the look ofÂ a handful of warmer and coolerÂ beige-and-brown pairings,Â is likely relatedÂ to the much taller project planned on the site by Allen Harrison Company, which bought the land last year. The developer has the spotÂ marked for an 11-story residentialÂ building (the top 7 of which’ll hold 186 apartments, and the bottom 4 of which’ll holdÂ 285 parked cars). A reader over on HAIF also spotted the recently completed review of the building by the Federal Aviation Administration folks, who okayed the plans for theÂ 125-ft.-tall structure as not a flight hazard.
