The site of a collapsed building in East Downtown received a demolition permit this week, though it is not immediately clear what the future holds for 2211 Congress St.
Cado Properties sold the lot to 2209 Congress LLC in November 2018. In 2019, the Harris County Appraisal District valued it at $312,500. The original building on the site had been built in 1900, according to appraisal records. It had suffered a roof collapse in recent years, according to The Arch-ive, a website dedicated to preserving Houston-area architectural history.
A demolition permit was also issued for a coffee shop-restaurant Christo Mio, 2523 Quenby St., in the Rice Village area. The site, which has had a sign promoting a coffee shop coming soon, received building permits for a remodel earlier this month.
