Swamplot’s Daily Demolition Report lists buildings that received City of Houston demolition permits the previous weekday the city’s permit offices were open.
Just a few structures that managed to sneak in before the fireworks:
- 1242 Kinley Ln. 77018 (Oak Forest)
- 713 Hahlo St. 77020 (garage; partial demo and repairs)
- 1310 Big Deer Dr. 77532

Will there be any oaks left in GOOF when all the mansionizing is finished? Garden No Oaks or No Oak Forest doesn’t roll off the tongue very well.
Some builders are trying to keep the oaks – the house going up across the street still has the large oak in the front yard (thanks to required set backs!) They applied for a variance on the back, so I don’t think the one in the now tiny strip of a back yard will make it if the huge tree roots sticking out of the dumpster after excavation were any indication. The mature crepe myrtles on the perimeters did not make it.
