Welcome back to This Week in Demolition! This week we have an almost completely residential mix with some real gems that should have been saved and a few that needed to go. Let’s start by taking a look at some of the demolitions of note from the week. The cover story is similar to last week, 4617 Gibson is another 1930s home that has been kept tastefully up to date. A house that was less tastefully updated is 2038 Banks while the exterior is quite nice the split level kitchen with obscured headroom is a dealbreaker for me. 703 Timberline on the other hand is a house that needs to go, it is a row of townhomes in the former Forest Cove neighborhood in Kingwood. The number of houses in the development had steadily dropped over the years due to flooding but was really finished out by Harvey. While some homes are still owned by individuals, most of the sites have been sold to the Harris County Flood Control District and it seems mostly empty as of 2020.
This is a list of the buildings which received a City of Houston demolition permit the week before this post.
