Finally, Someone Is Once Again Eradicating All Those Charming Montrose Bungalows

Via Swamplot, who got it from whatever magical leaks Swamplot gets all its real-estate scoop from, comes this artists' rendering of the building going up at the corner of West Gray and Waugh.

Bungalows are being knocked down to provide parking space for this, but that's fine because Montrose has plenty of charming old bungalows...that have been torn down to make way for townhomes.

What's going in to the new place?

The 21,000-sq.-ft. building was planned to house the Houston headquarters for general contractor Arch-Con on the third floor, next to the terrace. Scraped bungalows will make room for an adjacent surface parking lot. The architect's website notes there will be "additional parking on the first floor." Stream Realty has two 7,466-sq.-ft. floor plates listed for lease.
Ah. Sounds enchanting.
