Elgin-Butler Brick Co. – Houston

2619 Westpark Dr. (historically Milford St.) – Houston TX (built 1966; demolished November 2013; also Goode Co. commissary/offices)

Elgin-Butler Brick Company, headquartered in Austin TX, at one point built and owned this office building in Houston that showcased their glazed bricks on the facade. In 1988, Jim Goode, of Goode Co. restaurants, bought the building and used it for offices and a commissary, but by late 2013 Goode demolished it to make way for a parking garage. Unfortunately, to this day, it is just a surface parking lot.
