Save This Stucture
Historic downtown building up for grabs
Ever thought of owning a historic downtown building to house your classic cinema, charming coffee house/art gallery or perfectly unfinished loft? Well, the dream can be yours.
The Hogan-Allnoch Dry Goods Co. building on 1319 Texas Ave. is up for grabs. It was completed in 1923 and is in danger of demolition. (Harris County Commissioners want to tear it down and put up a parking lot. Shocking.)
Luckily, concerned preservationists took issue and have been granted a three-month extension on the building, which is situated on the last remaining block of historic structures leading up to Minute Maid Park.
So act fast, potential buyers. And you've got competition; businessman David Smith has offered $1 million.
