Whether you hate to see neighborhood homes demolished, or love to watch the destruction, the video below captured by DEEP (Dallas Endowment for Endangered Properties) is pretty dramatic. The backhoe seems to rip at the framework of the house at 5726 Oram, like a predator dissecting its prey. It’s unclear what will replace the two-bedroom Craftsman-style abode that was built in 1925. But if history’s any indicator, it’ll likely be a much larger house on the 6,700-square-foot lot. The land is zoned for a neighborhood office according to city maps, but multi-family according to DCAD. The demolition permits were issued on Tuesday.
