Despite being marketed previously as a potential site for up to 15 freestanding townhomes, the townhome-fringed lot at the corner of Houston Ave. and Spring St. now sports a TABCÂ permit notification instead. A reader caught some evening views of the corner and the sign announcing mixed-beverage and late-night plans forÂ itsÂ little 1996 building (which namesÂ Spring Street Beer and Wine GardenÂ as theÂ incoming occupant). New owners (at least the 6th to purchase the property since 2005, per county records) purchased the property in the fall, and the Attack of the Killer Condos mural previously facing the HeightsÂ Hike &Â Bike Trail along Spring St. has already been painted over:
The former ice house sits across from former firehouse-turned-wedding-venue Station 3, and across Spring St. from Oscar Food Mart.
