Westbury experienced another demolished building of the former Westbury Square in February. This was the former pizza restaurant building that had been vacant for years and destroyed by fire in 2010. After years of legal battles with the City of Houston, two previous buildings at Westbury Square were demolished around this time last year. The two other remaining buildings are also in poor condition and the City is continually working with the property owner to demolish those remaining derelict buildings. The Company on Stage is still operating from one of the more stable buildings; whereas, the property owner is still evaluating his options.
“In past years, Westbury Square was the commercial anchor of the Westbury community. Now that another demolition has occurred, we hope the current property owners will find a suitable buyer that will regain this once vibrant commercial destination and transform it into an exciting commercial center of commerce filled with quality retail development,” states Council Member Larry Green. The District K office will continue to monitor the movement of the Westbury Square “saga”.
