Selling Sunset Station

City Hall watchers might want to circle Friday, June 26 on their calendars. That's the day the City will hold a public hearing at the Municipal Plaza Building to discuss the proposed sale of Sunset Station property to East Commerce Realty, a subsidiary of the powerful (and seemingly omnipresent) Zachry Realty.

East Commerce reps didn't offer QueBlog much in the way of details about the proposed sale, aside from noting that the deal involves "five office buildings," and does not include the Sunset Station depot or pavilion.

Given the hoopla that surrounded the City's briefly considered sale of Market Square and La Villita a few months ago, and given the campaign-fund largesse that the Zachry family has bestowed on both former Mayor Phil Hardberger and new Mayor Julián Castro, this transaction should generate some questions.
