The steel-framed doubled-up home at 115 Arnold St. in Rice Military (pictured above) owned by Houston restaurateur Ouisie Jones and her husband Harry Jones earned its demolition permit yesterday, a few months after the property was sold to a developer — for $2.2 million. (It was asking $2.65 million this past March, when Swamplot featured it.) The 24,915-sq.-ft. property is being joined with the slightly larger plot of land under the adjacent warehouse building at 5202 Chandler St. to make space for an F-shaped 22-townhome development.
The new development is described variously in documents as Alys Park and Gable Park. Earlier this month, the planning commission gave approval to the developer, Brook Ingraham, not to have to widen the tiny stub end of Arnold St., which dead-ends at the back end of the Càceres townhome ring directly to the north.
