Though their neighbors at 4444 Westheimer were assigned “move out concierges” to help with their “residence transitions,” it doesn’t appear that the tenants at the Westcreek at River Oaks apartments, just east of the Loop and south of San Felipe, will enjoy the same luxury, now that they’ve been asked to leave, too. (Though they will get their security deposits back!) A tipster explains that eviction notices from property owners Kaplan Management Co. were delivered late last week politely requiring that 2 of the buildings at 2049 Westcreek Ln. be vacated by the end of November, so they can be torn down. Why? The notice explains that “the community is being redeveloped.”
It’s not explicit, of course, but the force behind that redevelopment appears to be the (Not Really In) River Oaks District in Highland Village. Several of the side streets to the east of the apartments on Westcreek Ln. are already being singled out for new gated communities as construction on Oliver McMillan’s mixed-use development with the curious name and the blanket-sharing movie theater gets going.
