Link-Lee Building (J. W. Link House)

-A A +A
J. W. Link House
1912, Sanguinet, Staats and Barnes. 3800 Montrose Blvd.

Built for J. W. Link, president of the Houston Land Corporation, his house became the administration building for the university in 1947. Link, who began development of the Montrose Addition in 1911, signaled the kind of neighborhood he hoped Montrose would become in this two- and three-story house, raised on an exposed basement and faced with glazed brick, tile, and terra-cotta.
