Montrose's Wilshire Village Apartments, Treeless & Paved Over

Swamplot photographer Candace Garcia has a Flickr page documenting the ongoing teardown of the former long-vacated but still-funky Wilshire Village apartment complex, now essentially a parking lot.

That's the Fiesta on the corner of West Alabama and Dunlavy in the far background of the above picture, just to orient you.

All the trees on the property are pretty much gone, but a sign says they will be replanted "throughout the Montrose community, helping to beautify environments in the area."

H-E-B, which is building a new supermarket on the site, says that through their partnership with Trees For Houston, "we pledge to cherish the environment and help build a sustainable future."

Consider yourself cherished, environment!
