Alta River Oaks broke ground in July.

A demolition permit was issued this week for the former Center for Hearing and Speech building to make way for a new luxury apartment midrise.

The site, 3636 W. Dallas St., was vacated in June, with the center taking up temporary quarters on Houston Avenue this summer. The center broke ground on a new building near the Texas Medical Center in July.

Meanwhile, demolition permits were also issued for St. Thomas Episcopal Church and School in the Meyerland area. The campus is undergoing improvements as it recovers from damages sustained during Hurricane Harvey. A new academic building is slated for construction completion in 2021, and church renovations are slated to be completed in 2020, according to a statement published by the church.
