River Oaks Shopping Center: Going, going...

I took these pictures yesterday morning on my way to work:

This is the Shepherd end of the center, where the Black Eyed Pea used to be, viewed from the Starbucks lot. The For Fun, For Life, For You sign is still there. Weingarten can begin demolition today, and I daresay they'll be wasting no time. I half expect to see some action as I drive by this morning.

A closer look at the implements of destruction.

Get ready to say Good-bye...

UPDATE: Nothing different this morning. We'll see what the afternoon holds.

UPDATE: Matt Stiles has more.

It is disturbing that City Council will be voting on the landmark status of this while it is being demolished--Irony is not good public policy, and I don't like it.

We, as Houstonians, need to decide what matters to us, and it is not an easy decision.
