Building buy: The West End island building formerly occupied by the popular Café Michael Burger, 11150 FM 3005, has a new owner. But buyer James Somerville isn’t yet divulging plans for the building once known for burgers and German cuisine, including wienerschnitzel and bratwurst.

V.J. Tramonte of Joe Tramonte Realty represented the seller, Debra Lichtenfeldt, who in 2019 closed Café Michael Burger after 27 years to retire. Hudson Holmes of Joe Tramonte represented Somerville. Stay tuned.

Where are they thinking about parking all these people for this church on 13th?? Parking lot only holds about 20 cars!
