Construction on the lot behind the Mr. Santos Fashion Design HQ on Westheimer Rd. at Kingston doesn’t mean Mr. Santos is closing up shop. It just means that his neighbor, the St. Anne Parish, is adding onto its parking lot along Kingston Dr. The dress designer and tailor, who’s operated out of the former house at 2150 Westheimer Rd. just west of Shepherd for a mere 32 years, tells Swamplot his shop, which specializes in wedding dresses, isn’t going anywhere.
The building at 2525 Kingston, which belonged to the parish, was torn down in 2013. The new parking lot will connect to 2 others at the complex, which includes the St. Anne Catholic Church and the St. Anne Catholic School, and have access from Westheimer and Kingston.
