The Post Oak: 36-Story High-Rise & Conference Center

Maybe. I thought the rendering of the pool above looked dated, also not very grand or luxurious as this entire mixed use is supposed to be. We shall see if Fertitta's vision is as opulent  in the finished product as he's made it out to be in interviews.

It has a classic cabana pool set up but it looks very cluttered and small. 

 

Edit: play nicely haifers.

The name of the patisserie going in Tilman Fertitta's The Post Oak in Houston is Bouchée Patisserie. This is going in the ground floor of the hotel.

From a hiring post (archive link):

Enhance your senses at our artisan confectionery, Bouchée Patisserie. Helmed by an award-winning pastry chef, Bouchée serves up both traditional and extravagant Parisian-inspired indulgences with a modern twist including house made bonbons, celebratory cakes, gelato, quiches, carefully-crafted chocolates and specialty coffee.

I have not found a rendering or construction photos related to this.

Wow. Good investigating. I would not be surprised to see these restaurants land in existing and future projects of Tilman's.

 

I have high hopes that the finished look for all of his restaurants here will be nice.

 

Landry's stepped their game up with Grotto Downtown. The look of other higher-end restaurants of theirs in town leaves much to be desired.

I call BS on the views in that rendering. There is no "tower" that looks like that to the left in the photo. Based on the current layout and the layout shown in the original floor plan, the pool will be at ground level on the backside. That will be pretty lame because it backs up to the street between the new tower and a five story wrap. Has the vibes of a pool at a Days Inn.

So, how long before Tilman starts that modeled tower west of Masetro's?

That surface parking lot is begging for it.

I cant believe he hasn't purchased the corner of Post Oak and the feeder road and developed that...(just north of his development)

that empty bank building/lot is such an eyesore and to know that everyone has to pass that to get to his place...well you would think that would be something he would take on...

any news on that corner regarding any plans/projects, etc? Even if they just took down the building and landscaped the lot would be a huge improvement...(now all of a sudden i am second guessing myself haha....there is still a building there right? haha!)

The direct corner is an ugly concrete/laydown lot. There is an old structure adjacent to it too.

Hopefully never if it’s as beautiful as the hotel.

Cranes everywhere! It's a smaller city, so maybe I observed more cranes and development. Those new condos/apartments all have their own unique, and bright style.  There's so many luxury apartments!

 

Russell Investments Center is so nice! The tower caught my eye while I was riding on the freeway. Google has a project in the CBD? I passed by the site and there was two or three cranes.

.

Edit: Off topic wise, I do like the peacefulness compared to Texas. The PNW is awesome!

Yeah the amount of growth that Seattle is having is insane! I guess that happens when you have the two richest men in the world living in one city, with enormous amounts of high paying jobs

Parking isn't great yet but I am sure it will be valet.

 

They are building a fountain wall on the back but it is not complete

Hands down the most pleasantly surprising building built in the last 10 years for me. The renderings didn’t have me excited but the outcome is wonderful. Total opposite of the building next to it (Astoria).

That's bizarre. Why so much wasted space?

 

To clarify, a surface lot in and of itself is wasted space, but this one looks oddly inefficient. What's with the huge drive lane on the left, or the weird slip lane at the top? Was this even designed, or did they just start painting without measuring anything first?

Yeah I agree, that could have obscured with a parapet wall or detailing around the perimeter. Kind of odd to have it exposed like that and be so significant on the profile of the building.

The outside of the building has some pretty cool lighting they're installing. Basically a LED line around every floor.

I went to Craft F&B yesterday. They had 24 beers on tap and a list of cocktails. Good prices on the drinks. The food is well priced as well for this type of restaurant. $12 burger and the brick oven pizza is a little more. But you get a good size pizza for the price. I really liked the place and will be making many more trips. I walked the rest of the hotel lobby and conference area. It is extremely well designed with a ton of white marble. It is one of the nicest if not the nicest building I have checked out in Houston. The French place isn't really for me but had some nice looking pastries and coffee. The high end cocktail bar was nice as well. Props to Tillman for putting together a very nice and cohesive structure.

24 beers on tap? Looks I may need to visit this weekend!  Love to go into this one. I bet it is indeed well designed.

Yes. I love craft beer and have tried a lot so there wasn't much on the menu I haven't tried. Places like Hay Merchant are still better but for this location, I am happy. There is a mix of Houston (8th Wonder, Karbach, Lone Pint, Southern Star) and Texas beers (Shiner, Oasis) along with some larger national brands like Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Goose Island, and Ballast Point as well as a few German beers. They also have 12 or so beers in bottles you can buy. If someone is looking for Bud or Miller, you won't find those here.
