The Greenbriar Chateau Apartments, just south of 59 on, well, Greenbriar, have long been a housing option for people with some attachment to Rice.
It's a quick trip down the street to the campus and, for at least most of its for-Houston long time in existence, the staff and facilities have been pretty good.
Residents of 4100 Greenbriar are going to have to get up and go, though: Today they received a certified letter from Kaplan Management saying the complex will be razed and replaced with a "state of the art" housing complex.
The apartment dwellers have until March 8 to clear out.
We're sure the rents at the new place will be cheaper, right?
