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


Recommended Posts

All of the weather reports I've seen the last two days have said the rain would start tonight after ten so I don't think it will be a problem. Not that the weatherman is always right but he's usually pretty close. He also says it should be over by twelve tomorrow so the Houston Vanderbilt game will be dry!!!!! Go Coogs, and since Fertitta is on the U.of H board this isn't off topic.

The 10-acre project, dubbed The Post Oak, has added an extra floor and will now be 36 stories with an additional level providing access to a helicopter landing pad. The additional space will be used for 10 additional hotel rooms and 20,000 more feet of boutique office space.

 

The now 680,000-square-foot tower will include 250 luxury hotel rooms, more than 140,000 square feet of boutique office space and 22 residential apartment units. The structure will be 490 feet tall, Fertitta said, including a penthouse with 16-foot ceilings.

 

Fertitta's especially excited about the "ultra-high-end" hotel, where he said the rooms will have "the highest rate in Houston." A flag has yet to be decided, but several are in the running, he said.

 

The vertical mixed-use project will also include event space, an open plaza with a pool, and two Landry's Inc. concepts, Mastro's Steakhouse and Willie G's Seafood and Steaks. Other notable amenities include a two-story spa and salon and a two-story Bentley and Rolls-Royce showroom.

Could you imagine if just uptown was in the eastern side of downtown. Jesus we would have a Chicago type skyline on our hands :blink:

 

Houston will have a ridiculously nice skyline one day stretching from downtown to uptown, gobbling up greenway plaza as part of it in the process. The only downside is pretty much none of us will be alive to see it by the time it happens.

The Post Oak, Tilman Fertitta’s game changing vertical mixed-use development, poured concrete Friday. We sat down with Tilman (right) and Landry’s SVP of development Jeff Cantwell over some Popeye’s (he might be one of Houston’s top five richest real estate moguls, but he says fancy executive lunches just aren’t his style), where he told us he’s launching Houston’s first vertical mixed-use hotel/office/multifamily/retail/restaurant development “because I could.” He says the project won’t be replicated anytime soon here because the numbers don’t pencil out, but he hopes that a decade from now, people will look back and say The Post Oak really changed Houston’s high-end multi-use development scene. This rendering is actually outdated; the team has added one story to the tower.

 

He’s especially excited about the 250-key hotel, which he says will be by far the nicest in Houston and will command the highest ADR. It’ll be the metro’s first five-fixture hotel (each bathroom will have two sinks, separate toilet room, separate bath and shower, plus floor-to-ceiling marble).

 

The 140k SF of boutique office (he's bulked it up) will be really special, Tilman tells us, including nice executive parking. Its services will be huge, including Bentley pickup service at the airport or five-star hotel room service for your late-night meeting. 

 

The 36-story, 680k SF tower will open in fall 2017.

Hmm. Looks like the article now says 36 stories. Guess the the Til-man got a bit too excited during the interview! It's funny how things can get exaggerated. ;) 38 did sound better though. Wonder if that new foundation could support it?

 

I would assume that every highrise building, from the foundation to the pillars are over engineered by a large degree. I'm sure the foundation could probably support a building far taller than "just" 36 stories. I'm not an engineer but I would assume that's the case.

Ferris Bueller, you're my hero.

I mean, is this guy serious? For all the Tilman haters out there, you gotta give it to this guy, he's got that weird thing that some people are born with, like Howard Hughes, Puff Daddy, Henry Ford, Carl Icahn.

Absolutely zero ***** given for what anyone else says or thinks, or what the market is doing. Just, they want to do something so they do it, true mavericks who leave their mark on this world.

it doesn't look too bad driving south on 610 around the Uptown Park area, looking at it at a corner view so it doesn't look as bulky. but yeah.. definitely not coming out as nice as the renderings. hopefully that doesn't happen with Arabella.
