I hate to even say anything since Sarofim has been about to tear down these buildings since 2005, but I’m starting to believe something may happen for the west side of Travis just south of Cole. A teardown at least. And, if that’s all that gets done for the next decade, that would be ok by me. Some green space I would hope, instead of more surface parking. A few weeks ago, the parking lots south of the old katana were chained off, and this morning there is a crew coming in to mark buried utilities. My guess is that utilities will be disconnected shortly. Disconnected as in permanently disconnected in preparation for scraping this parcel. Looks like there’s still quite a bit of debris inside the buildings, and there were a couple of folks surveying what’s left to do prior to demo.
Please, please, no more surface parking.
