Demolishing the River Oaks Theater?

I can't believe this...what are they thinking?

Three Houston landmarks, including the Landmark River Oaks Theatre and the Bookstop in the former Alabama Theater, have been declared endangered by the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance. The alliance has learned, spokesman David Bush said Friday, that two buildings in the River Oaks Shopping Center could face demolition within two years. The other is the Alabama Theater.

The center is controlled by Weingarten Realty Investors in Houston. A Weingarten spokeswoman would not confirm the company's plans for the shopping center.

I'm not surprised. After all, they tore down the wonderful Shamrock Hilton several years ago. It was full of history and treasure. The city and the developers just don't care about landmarks.
