Dinerstein Cos.' luxury apartment tower in the Galleria area tops out ahead of schedule

A Houston-based developer has reached a construction milestone on its latest luxury apartment tower.

The Dinerstein Cos. said its Aspire Post Oak project topped out ahead of schedule. The tower was original expected to reach its highest point in January 2021, according to a Nov. 18 press release.

The luxury 383-unit high-rise is at 1650 Post Oak Blvd. and sits on 1.59 acres at the corner of Post Oak and San Felipe Street in Houston's Uptown District. It will have seven floors of residential and commercial parking below 33 residential floors.

The project also contains 15,506 square feet of ground-floor retail space, which is slated to be leased to a "nationally renowned restaurant concept," the press release stated.

Houston-based Ludlow & Associates Construction is the general contractor, and San Francisco-based Gensler is the architect for the project.

“Aspire Post Oak’s location is one of Houston’s most appealing, urban mixed-use and pedestrian-friendly areas in the city, and we recognize the need for the property’s design to reflect the surrounding premier environment," said Brooks Howell, residential leader and principal at Gensler.

Aspire Post Oak is a part of the Dinerstein Cos. Aspire Living Collection. The units have an average size of 1,210 square feet, larger than an average apartment space, to accommodate current market demand. All the units will have a private outdoor space overlooking the Uptown District with views of the Galleria, downtown Houston and Memorial Park. Future tenants will have the option of choosing between one-, two- or three-bedroom units and penthouses. The units will also feature modern kitchens, European-inspired bathrooms and in-unit washers and dryers.

Aspire Post Oak's amenities will include smart unit technology, a resident lounge, massage rooms, private dining rooms, a 24-hour fitness center, an infinity-edged pool with tanning decks and adjacent aqua lounge, indoor and outdoor resident event space, an elevated dog park and a concierge.

Leasing for Aspire Post Oak will begin in the latter part of 2021 with rents starting at $3,000 per month.

“Although we do business all over the country, Houston is our home, and we are beyond excited for Aspire Post Oak to place its mark on the Houston skyline,” said Brian Dinerstein, CEO of Dinerstein Cos. “We look forward to creating a modern, cutting-edge, residential option at one of the most walkable and vibrant locations in the city.”

The project broke ground in spring 2019 and had been the subject of a lawsuit related to neighborhood opposition. However, the lawsuit was dismissed in July 2020 after the parties reached an agreement, according to Harris County District Court records, which did not disclose the terms of the agreement.

OK, not specifically for "Highrise Tower" but, I have to ask.

 

For DECADES, when heading west on West Gray through Waugh, I would always see the two Four Leaf Towers straight ahead in the distance. I haven't been home since late February so I haven't been able to look, but I'm guessing this building blocks one or both of them. Somebody will, of course, go out and take a look for me...right? 😛

Off topic: I was skimming through HBO Max's new "reality" series about the wealthy Vietnamese family who live in River Oaks to see how the shots of Houston look. Just barely into the second episode I turned it off in disgust. Can anyone guess why?

I watched the first episode last night and there were some great shots of Houston. I know to be prepared now. Thanks!

My first thought was the view of the Cosmo but then I saw the text.

The rear podium is being worked on. Have mixed feelings, but I do love the mat colors.  Can't wait to see the front completed.

It's such a big box.  I wonder if it is equipped to offer charging stations in a quantity to accommodate a changeover to electric cars during the course of the next decade.  I live in Four Leaf with a vast below grade parking deck and right now we don't have enough demand to bring power to the people on a cost effective basis . I think there is a business opportunity for a third party to install the wiring and buy the power in wholesale and get its investment back through fees and the spread on power purchases/sales in apartment complexes , but I haven't run the numbers.
