Dirt Roundup at Houston’s Last Ranch

Some “significant earth moving” is taking place near the corner of Kingsland Blvd. and Barker Cypress Rd. at the northwest corner of George Bush Park, reports a reader who sent in these pics from the apparent construction scene from over the weekend. Yes, this is the site of the famed LH7 Ranch, which at last report — a year and a half ago — appeared to be headed toward a new destiny as a “ranch-themed” housing development. But that’s not what our tipster hears:


“A gas station employee across the street says it’s going to be ‘high-end apartments’ . . . not really the best source, but I would guess he has a lot of construction workers going in/out throughout the day. Maybe they fed him some info?”

  • So the developer gets the historical destination removed using images of ranch themes, interpretative signs, and reuse of artifacts….then clears the place and builds apartments??
