This rendering of the apartment building that Hines is replacing Cafe Adobe with isn’t current, says a company rep. And details about the building are few — though the rep says that the midrise Hines is planning for the soon-to-be-former restaurant and parking lot at Westheimer and South Shepherd will contain 215 units and no retail space.
Cafe Adobe opened at 2111 Westheimer about 30 years ago. Yesterday, abc13’s Miya Shay ran with the out-of-date rendering and reported, moreover, that some neighbors seem worried about the impact the development could have on the intersection — but Hines says in a statement that the comings and goings of the residents and visitors of 215 apartments “will likely be far less disruptive to the neighborhood than the existing busy Mexican restaurant.”
If all goes according to these non-plans, construction could begin in July.
