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.
