So Willie G's is also moving. That's interesting. Hopefully we'll see another vertical project on that lot before too long.

I'd heard rumors over the previous few months regarding this lot but nothing I deemed substantial. This at least gives those rumors more weight.

This coming week's HBJ will feature an article about major plans for the area around Landry's Headquarters on the West Loop between Post Oak Blvd and San Felipe.

Plans include the following;

1) A 20 story office tower. The tower will be built as spec and will try for led certification. It will have a 1,600 car garage and 475,000 square feet of Class A space. The tower will use Ziegler Cooper's old design for the 1600 West Loop South proposal that died a few year's ago. The Novati Group of Dallas is in charge of this tower which is set to open in April 2010.

2) A new home for Willie G's Seafood and Steak House. This bldg will rise just South of Landry's Hdqts. It will allow for Simmons-Vedder to develop the old space further down Post Oak Blvd into an office building.

3) An early proposal for a 21 story hotel affiliated with Landry's. My guess is that an old rumor of a San Luis Hotel for Houston might be in the works or maybe they will try and land a national chain...

ooops, sorry, I didn't see KingOwl's post. Can this be merged with his? Thanks!

Nice design. Taller and more inventive than at least one of the garbage excuses for skyscrapers that are being built downtown. The green glass curve seems reminiscent of Wells Fargo.

Since the article will be online in a few days, and I'm not sure if the maps are always attached, this is from today's print edition. It lays out the location of the proposed 20-story building and 21-story hotel amongst other things.

That is it. The MS Live map shows it well. The office building will be were the parking lot is on the bottom left corner. Note the brown/sandy looking area in the middle is where Landry's had a temporary facility for Christmas parties you could rent out. The smaller building with the circle roof is the Rolls/Bently dealer and you can see part of Landry's headquarters in the bottom right of the shot.

I so closely associate the San Luis Hotel with the Seawall, gulf, and Galveston. A San Luis along the West Loop would just seem odd. But if this a Landry' project, than a San Luis makes more sense than a Golden Nugget.

How is Main Place, the Pavilions, or any of the new ones around the park, "garbage"? This thing is nice, and will certainly stand out next to the older buildings around it, but its not that great. It looks like a typical, turn of the last century design.

According to this coming week's HBJ, this one is on hold. Having a difficult time finding lenders without significant preleases. They are still marketing the building.

2014 03 14:  Is this anything?  Immediately behind is Astoria's laydown.  I'ts immediately south of the Bentley dealership, and about 100 feet in from the west loop frontage road (outside the loop).
