The jaws now in action at Mid Lane Phase III site

After THE JAMES, THE IVY, but first some more demolition action 


Demolition of deemed-obsolete two-story office buildings now under way on the corner of Westheimer Rd and Mid Lane to make room for the next phase of the huge high-end residential development project by STREETLIGHTS RESIDENTIAL and Stonelake Capital Partners.

The site is already fenced in for demolition, with a double-winged billboard touting THE JAMES on the corner.

Coming soon: Ivy, The Ivy -  There is real greenery on site, but will it be allowed to remain? 
The ivy on site is faux and the Ivy name appears to be still subject to copy-editing

The old must go 
Destruction is the prelude to creation - creation of new luxury residences on prime real estate 
Some verdant trees remain on the site of the demolition in the 2300 Block of Westheimer. The new with green
