An excavator and friends were spotted on Westheimer this week having a go at the long-empty lot directly next to upscale Indian-fusion spot Indika. Also on the agenda were the freshly-empty and moderate-length-of-empty lots next door — all three spaces (520, 524, and 528 Westheimer) are currently held by Rok Bros Holdings.
The central lot, at 524 Westheimer, was demolished shortly after mid-2011; the more recently demolished house on the westernmost lot (528 Westheimer) held LV Massage and a psychic, after the 524 house crossed over into the great beyond. A request to merge the 3 lots was approved at a Houston Planning Commission meeting on July 10, 2014; the request refers to the space as Rok Bros Westheimer Plaza, and was filed in conjunction with Houston-based Momentum Engineering.

At one time this was going to be the site of a Coco crapes but don’t know if this many years later it will be but good luck if it is.
It is owned by the group behind uptown sushi. They are not sure what they will call the new restaurant but it will be upscale Japanese.
I’m going with ….mattress store…
A little bird told me it could be a Paul Qui restaurant.
seriously? that would be unreal
