The northeast corner of Westheimer and Fondren, where until recently a Landry’s Seafood restaurant and a Prosperity Bank building stood, is the scene for this remarkable series of photos sent to Swamplot by reader Roy Cormier, showing the demolition in progress earlier this month. Above, an excavator nibbles away at the remaining urban oasis at the end of the parking lot. Below, we find the drive-up ATM at the end of civilization:
It has all been scrapped
. . . so a bright future may appear.
The site at 8808, 8816, and 8820 Westheimer Rd. was purchased by Lennar Multifamily, which is clearing it for the Crest at Fondren Apartments, a 338-unit, gleaming-toothed complex that — according to the company’s website — should end up looking something like the image shown at left.
