From a tall perch nearby, a reader sends Swamplot this shot of the future site of BLVD Place, where — it appears — site work has begun on the land slated to become the second phase of the mixed-use development, including the long-awaited Galleria Whole Foods Market and more than 150,000 sq. ft. of shops. The camera is pointed down San Felipe, looking east toward Post Oak. Here’s another view of the site from the south, from another reader:
The patchy, dirt-covered plot in the foreground visible just beyond the parking structure is the site of the recently demolished Pavilion at Post Oak (see photo here) — 6.4 acres from the middle of the BLVD Place development that Wulfe & Co. sold off to oil and gas exploration and production company Apache in May — and where Apache will likely build its own new office tower.
