This Week in Demolition: 2 Homes and a Pool, right on Memorial Park

This Week in Demolition, we have two homes, seemingly joined at the hip, with a big pool in the backyard, right across from Memorial Park. This lavish monument to 1990s Houstonian exuberance will soon be demolished for something even more grand.

  1. The two homes next to Memorial park are gone, just loading out the scrap. I took a pic of them today while on my ride.

  2. All 4 of the homes west of the intersection of Hawthorne and Stanford are in really bad shape so I’m not surprised 808 Hawthorne is getting demoed. Looks like one of the 4 has had some workers trying to repair it but it’s been slow going. I live a few blocks away so I see them all the time.
