A look into Houston's retail past

This Week in Demolition: What’s Pappa’s Plan?

Welcome back to another Demolition Report. I’m trying a new format in which I compile the entire week into one post. Let me know what you think in the comments!

This week we see a far wider selection of homes, with Demolition permits coming in from all around the city. One house that stuck out this week is what appears to be an original 1930s house with a second story addition from the 1950s. Interesting enough in its own right, it seems that it is the final piece of a now demolished block that holds Pappa’s Warehouses. The question is, what’s Pappa’s Plan? The lot is too small for a restaurant, and wouldn’t add much in terms of warehouse space. My guess would be to expand parking.

The lot contains just the house, garage, and small patio. The garage directly backs up to the warehouse, or as described in the listing “no neighbors!” Photo: Har.com

This is a list of the buildings which received a City of Houston demolition permit the week before this post.
