I am curious about an old abandoned commercial/industrial building, just east of northbound 59 across from Minute Maid Park. The intersection appears to be St. Emmanuel and Preston. It is about five stories and almost a city block in length. There is a tank of some sort on the roof.

It is easily visible on your right hand side as you drive north on 59. I pass it each day on my way to work and for some reason I am very curious about it. Looks like a neat old building.

Thanks.

Don't know if it's abandoned. They have a soup kitchen in front of it every once in a while.

I took a drive through that area yesterday. What a sad sight. Apart from a couple of new buildings, like Lofts at the Ballpark, the area is a wasteland with nothing but boarded up buildings and lots of homeless folks. It would be great to reclaim that whole area and put in some major facility/attraction there.

Those are Allen Stanford's new digs.
