This Week in Demolition: Buffalo Bayou Partnership takes aim at Turkey Bend redevelopment

Good Afternoon HHR readers, this week in demolition we see the start of something big, the Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s redevelopment of the eastern portion of Buffalo Bayou. According to a demolition permit filed by the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, it seems that some preliminary work will occur at the former Turkey Bend Barge Docks. Concept art released in 2019 showed most of the support structures at the dock being left behind, and warehouses transitioned into a “gathering space”. The Turkey Bend project was one of three pieces of the enormous Master Plan to get a jump start thanks to a $10 Million grant BBP received in 2020. Hopefully I’ll be able to cover this in a future edition of Retail News! By the way, if you partake in the retail side of this blog, then prepare for a treat because this September starts the Month of Malls!

  1. 2403 Caroline is going to be part of the city of Houston Housing and Development project called the Carolina Lofts. Work force priced apartments being developed by Mark-Dana Corp. They had already demolished the building when I went by on Saturday and are in the process of creating the forms for the future concrete base.

  2. Corrosion Protection Services burned down about 6 months ago. It was beyond repair because the roof caved in. It’s surrounded by new townhomes and brand new apartments going up around it. They should have sold out to the apartments, when they had the chance.
