Prime Property: Harold’s, “Modern Landmark” on 19th Street, Finds Buyer
The historic Harolds in the Heights building has been sold.
The Wiesenthal family, owners of the clothing business at 350 W. 19th which closed in August after 61 years of business, sold the 13,600-square-foot building last week to a partnership led by Braun Enterprises, a Houston-based real estate development and management company.
Dan Braun, president of Braun Enterprises, said there is a lot of interest from potential tenants, including restaurants, banks and other retailers.
“We’re really excited about this project and very bullish on the Heights,” Braun said. “The neighborhood is only going to get stronger.”
In the Houston Architectural Guide, historian Stephen Fox describes the building as “West 19th’s outstanding modern landmark.”
The purchase price was not disclosed.
Jason Baker, a principal at Baker Katz, represented the Wiesenthal family, and Braun represented the partnership acquiring the property.
