Many have heard the news about Tilman Fertitta’s latest project near the Galleria, The Post Oak. This Billionaire entrepreneur “has never been one to think small” and his new development plans take his ambitions to a whole new level.
The Post Oak is will be located on a 10-acre site on the West Loop South that will include a multi-use luxury high rise, a ballroom and conference center, two restaurants and more than $1 million in landscaping. It will be Houston’s first building to embrace the international trend of high-rise towers with office space, hotel rooms and residences.
The main attraction of this master-planned development will be the 36-story high rise that will include 250 luxury hotel rooms, more than 140,000 square feet of boutique office space and 22 apartment units ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet. The development will also include an exclusive penthouse with 16 foot ceilings. A notable amenity will include a two-story spa and salon. Piece de resistance of the tower will be the 4,000 square foot Chairman Suite featuring two bedrooms, a media room, exercise room, private terrace and private elevator access. There will also be more than 1,000 parking spaces available.
The hotel rooms and suites will feature 500 to 2,000 square feet and the presidential suite will have 4,000 square feet with two bedrooms, private elevator access, media room, exercise room, and a private balcony.
The residential units will range in size 1,000-2,000 square feet. The Class A Office Space will have a separate and secure entrance.
The site will be richly-landscaped with a central open plaza, outdoor dining patios and pedestrian areas, will also have the first Mastro’s Steakhouse in Houston and Willie G’s, which will be relocated from its Uptown location. Fertitta plans to preserve the existing oak trees on the property and spend an additional $1+ Million to transplant more oak trees to the development.
Event planners will be welcome in the ballroom and conference center, a 30,000 square foot multi-function area that includes a 16,000 square foot ballroom and a second level junior ballroom and additional meeting spaces. Unique to the center, will be a two-story auto showroom with floor-to-ceiling windows displaying Bentley and Rolls-Royce luxury cars from Fertitta’s Post Oak Motor Cars, which is located on the site.
This extravagant luxury project is estimated to cost $200 million and is projected to be complete in the fall of 2017. Gensler is providing the master planning, architecture, and interior architecture for the development.
