Underground Parking Garage near CityCentre Replaced with Garage-Shaped Lake

Water Main Strike during Demolition of Town & Country, 10565 Katy Fwy., CityCentre, Houston

Following that recent gentle but firm excavator tipover of the last bits of the Town & Country III mod office midrise near CityCentre, demo work on the broader office complex has moved underground — apparently far enough underground to puncture a water main, a camera wielder on the scene speculates this afternoon. As of 2pm, word from the reader was that water was still flowing, “and has made a nice-sized pool,” filling up the footprint of a mid-demo former underground parking garage structure (and providing lakeside views to parts of Trammell Crow’s CityCentre branch of its Alexan apartment chain.)

fuller sequence of garage take-apart and fill-up over the last few days is laid out below, starting with a rainy Tax Day shot facing the Alexan and the I-10-Beltway-8 tangle:

The water spotted filling up the site as of last Wednesday looks to be the usual Houston rainwater capture:

  • Ooooh the apartments look urbanilicous!

  • In this rental market, I’m sure those will become exclusive Lakeview apartments. You can’t afford not to sign a long term lease!

  • Midway already has a 65 million dollar bridge loan. Guess they will need a bigger loan now. City centre is dead since they started charging for parking.
