The southwest corner of Dunlavy and West Alabama —the former site of the dilapidated Wilshire Village apartments—may soon be more than a large swath of empty land.
Reports are buzzing at Swamplot that the 7-plus acre plot might be home to a new H-E-B grocery store. And separately, some have noticed that the oak trees on the property have all been marked with a white ribbon, with the exception of a few along West Alabama and flanking the former Sul Ross entrance, which are marked with green ribbons. The theory says that the white-ribbon trees are to be torn down for construction.
As Swamplot notes, "A new Wilshire Village H-E-B would jibe with the tree-clearance theory. And there aren’t too many grocery stores already in the area — unless of course you count the Randalls Flagship at Shepherd Square, the Kroger on Montrose, the Whole Foods just down West Alabama, and the Fiesta directly across the street."
