I talked about the Railyard yesterday. A condo complex that, I believe, will be torn down soon and be replaced by high-rises. Today, I feature an open lot that was once the Villas on Town Lake, a condo complex built in 1982. It was demolished a year ago.
I had a photographer friend who lived there, and conveniently I would park at his place when visiting Rainey Street. I didn’t document the complex back then, though, in reality, the low-rise buildings didn’t look particularly impressive.
Now, we have a big opening ripe for new high-rise development, most likely. Though it doesn’t look like much behind the chain-link fence. You do get a nice view of The Fairmont Hotel I talked about recently. The building under construction is The Quincy, which has also made appearances during my Rainey Street coverage.
