Demolition of Winfield I Condominums

The City of Houston has successfully negotiated an agreement that will lead to the demolition of the run down Winfield I Condominiums at 10403 Forum Park, Houston 77036. Demolition is scheduled to begin Monday, October 22, 2012.

The demolition agreement is the result of a cooperative enforcement approach by the Houston Department of Neighborhoods, the Houston Police Department and the City Legal Department. The City was able to utilize a series of administrative citations and summons to force the condo owners to first secure the property, drain and fill the pool and clear debris. Once those preliminary steps were taken, further discussions were held with the owners to finalize demolition arrangements.

The property has long been neglected and was a neighborhood eyesore and a haven for prostitutes and drug dealers. Its removal will bring relief to neighbors who have wanted it gone for years. The results will be improved public safety and a boost for surrounding property values and hope that the property will be redeveloped into something that better serves the area.
