2100 Memorial Demolition Underway!

Following is an update on construction at 2100 Memorial from Mark Thiele, Interim President & CEO, Houston Housing Authority:

The project officially commences on Monday, August 30th, with the demolition of the garage. The demolition plan includes a process that uses robotic machinery, which substantially reduces debris. Demolition is expected to take eight months, with the new structure building scheduled to begin in April of 2022. Here are a few key items that you should be aware of as we move forward:

  • Construction hours are as follows:

    • Monday - Friday, 7 am - 5:30 pm

    • Saturday, 8 am - 3 pm

  • If you need to reach someone about a construction emergency, please contact Ron Gambini at (713) 806-4190.

  • A website is being prepared to share updates on construction.
