Robinson Warehouse demolition update
The Robinson Warehouse demolition is proceeding apace. I've decided to try and document its progress, since I drive past it so often. Beware of doing that on a weekend, however - all but one of the southbound lanes of Montrose were closed off this Saturday as they were working on the front of the building, and I'd expect there to be more of that in the coming weeks.

Anyway, the old place is slowly being turned to dust and rebar. At this pace, I figure it'll be gone by the end of the year, give or take a week or so. More pics beneath the fold.

The front view. I wonder if they'll need to use explosives to bring it all down.
Lots more activity in the parking lot/loading dock area. I saw some blowtorch sparks happening, but didn't manage to get a shot of it.

Weather permitting, I'm going to try to get a picture every day till it's gone. We'll see how it goes.

I must have driven past this a thousand times, but for the life of me I can't remember it.

I was really hoping someone would buy the building and do something interesting with it, but no. Probably will be cheaply built townhomes or apartments. That's Houston for you . . .

Dwight - According to Nancy Sarnoff, it will be a Muslim Ismaeli Center. See here for more.
