CATS STILL HANGING AROUND WEST U APARTMENTS, UNAWARE OF REDEVELOPMENT PLANS A group of 25 or so cats still hanging around the 2-and-a-half-acre grounds of the recently vacated Courts at West University apartments at 3810 Law St. have apparently not been informed of the 5-story Alexan West University complex set to go up on their old stomping grounds. An animal advocacy group concerned that the cats may get in the way when the existing buildings are demolished early next month has sounded the alarm, requesting donations and assistance in setting up a feeding station away from the demo site, as well as finding adoptive and foster homes for the uninformed animals.

Last week, Trammell Crow Residential shared preliminary plans for its proposed Alexan West University apartments with its future neighbors in Houston’s Sunset Terrace and Montclair subdivisions. The design presented to the civic association is taller, denser, fancier, and more brightly illuminated than the 40-year-old garden-style apartments it will replace. Currently home to the Courts at West University, the site is located at Law and Bissonnet streets. That’s near but not in West U. The developer’s replat of the 2.54 acre site goes before Houston’s planning commission tomorrow.
Houston’s Sunset Terrace subdivision could be getting a new neighbor. A five-story one. Trammell Crow Residential is floating plans for its proposed Alexan West University apartment project. The intended 2.5-acre site is bordered by Bissonnet, Law and Auden streets. Currently, that location is home to the Courts at West University, a 1973-vintage two-story garden style apartment complex at 3810 Law St., complete with its own bark park:
And where was this? From the description:
take two rails from a gas station, weld them together, dress up as a city worker, install on public land, skate for a few weeks, cry when city takes rail away
Update: Found! Bernard, in a comment, says it’s at the northwest corner of Edloe and Westpark.
