Delmar Field House – Houston

2020 Mangum Rd. – Houston TX (built 1958; demolished January 2014; architect: Milton McGinty)

 

The Houston Independent School District Board of Education voted on September 13, 2013 to demolish and replace Delmar Field House (HISD article). It was built in 1958 and designed by architect Milton McGinty (of River Oaks Shopping Center, Adkins Insurance Building, Glennlee, Holland Lodge on Montrose, Rice Stadium, Cuney Homes, Cossaboom YMCA on the South Loop East).

 

According to the Board of Education, the building was “in poor condition with major roof leaks, flooding problems in the locker rooms and a sports medicine area that falls short of athletic league standards” which places it in the same category of owner neglect as the Prudential/Houston Main Building.
