Houston's Meyer Park shopping center partially demolished



I've been writing about the demise transformation of Meyer Park in southwest Houston for a few years now. In the 1990s when it was shining and new, it was a big time destination for food, entertainment and shopping. Lately, we have been watching stuff close, but there is a new life there.

This week part of Meyer Park was demolished. Everything in between Hu's Garden to Luby's. In the past those stores would have contained Warehouse Music and Phar-Mor. Now it is rubble.

I've heard rumors the Luby's is moving into a new building that will be built at a later date. Also heard a rumor about new apartments coming in. That Kohl's moving into the old AMC 16 Meyer Park space rumor I told you about in December is apparently true.

Clearly the developers have been waiting to fill the place up, so maybe they are going to totally transform it the way Meyerland Plaza changed in the 1999s. We will watch and see.
