College Station Plaza Hotel – Demolition today!

College Station Plaza Hotel coming down!!

Joe Ferreri’s Ramada Inn built in 1960 ended as the Plaza Hotel today! Many years of financial troubles and dilapidated buildings adjacent to the Hotel, contributed to the eventual demolition of the hotel.  Many Aggies have walked the halls in the last 50+ years.  Weddings, ring dunk parties, and many other gatherings walked the halls and corridors of the once 17 story addition to the College Station skyline.  Being from the nearby city of Caldwell, I grew up passing by the hotel to go to Piggly Wiggly and Taco Bell on Texas Ave.  I always knew we were close to Taco Bell when I could see the bottom half of the hotel from the back seat on FM 60 coming from Snook.

I can’t wait to see construction start on the new (rumor) student housing, shopping/eating center and night clubs.  The College Station local economy will see a boost once the new structures are in place and open for business, so Aggies get ready!

My daughter, Hailey, was the videographer and I can’t find a better video online anywhere!!  She did a great job!

  1. Susan Hilton College Station Real Estate

    Best video of the Plaza Hotel Implosion in College Station, Tx that I have seen too! Haley did a great job. Her hand is steady and she framed it very well. Watching the Plaza implode was really exciting. I know it didn’t take long to come down but being with my Century 21 Beal Family at the camp out at the real estate office on Texas Ave and then getting together as a big group to watch the implosion from the polo field at TAMU was even better. Hope everyone enjoyed the breakfast tacos too!

  2. Grandma Sarah

    Hailey is my granddaughter and she did a phonominal job in video taping this event. This is something that she will never forget. I have been in the surrounding area for 30 yrs and remember seeing student coming and going from this building. It has always been my favorite building to see. A land mark for me on many occassions. I will miss seeing the building that has been there for so many students and events. Change is good, hopefully there will be something put in its place to benefit everyone.

    I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours these days, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Buying a used car can be tricky, no matter how much
    you already know about cars. There are lots
    of different things to consider so that you don’t end up buying a piece of junk that breaks down right away. Use some great tips of the trade in the following article to help you make your next car choice.

    My partner and I stumbled over here different web page and thought I might check things out.

    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to looking over your web page repeatedly.

    Sure, it probably surprises you to see me touting a Ford Explorer
    gas-guzzling SUV monster as the best car I ever
    owned, but there is a specific reason for that. It’s
    best to buy a vehicle that will look good even after a decade.

    The difference is in the price; sometimes it’s cheap, sometimes not.
