Fairwell 603 W Live Oak

Las Manos MagicasWell another one is on it’s way out of the neighborhood. The house that was most recently Las Manos Magicas, a house converted into a sort-of store come showroom for brightly colored masks, candles and religious icons and pots and jewelry. The store shut down a few months back and I can’t say I’ve missed it, I did buy a couple of gift pots there once though.

More interesting to me is the whole American thing about taking houses away and re-installing them elsewhere, it’s something I’ve rarely heard about, let alone seen in any other country in the world. I guess it’s the ultimate in recycling and from that perspective I thoroughly approve.

603 W Live Oak I called the house movers, Come and Take it Structural Movers, and ask when they were taking it. They said sometime next week, but the house is already prep’d and almost ready to go. If the Cities planning database is to be believed, the house will end up at 7314 Meador Ave.

Although not approved, it looks like it will be replace with 4-1st floor residential, and 4-upper floor residential apartments with parking and is being done under existing MU zoning.

Fairwell 603!
