We just got back from the Galleria area, where we watched 2200 Post Oak go bye-bye. It appears the demo went off with a slight hitch, as a pile of rubble landed on an 18-wheeler Cherry Demolition had parked next to the adjacent building. It was unclear whether the actual building was damaged, but at least one truck appears to be toast. You can see a full gallery of the action right here.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
