The Post Oak Will Be Mixed-Use 35-Story Development

Tilman J. Fertitta has broken ground on The Post Oak, the first vertical mixed-use, master-planned project in Houston that combines hotel, office, residential, retail and restaurant offerings all in one tower. The luxurious new development will be prominently located in the Galleria and Uptown area along West Loop South, with convenient access from Loop 610, Holly Hurst Street, and Hallmark Drive. Rising above this 10-acre prestigious mixed-use development will be a sophisticated 35-story tower with an adjacent elegant and expansive ballroom, the largest in the Galleria and Uptown area. In addition to the already existing magnificent oak trees on the property, Fertitta will spend over $1 million to transplant and install large specimen oak trees to further complement the development.

“The Post Oak will serve as a luxury destination for guests, businesses, and residents,” stated Fertitta, developer of The Post Oak. “I am excited about creating Houston’s finest hotel, most unique service-oriented office space, exclusive luxury residential apartments, and once again, some of Houston’s best restaurants. The Post Oak’s proximity to our corporate office allows me and my executive team to be intimately involved in the planning and development of this 10-acre urban experience.”

“We welcome this addition to the Galleria and Uptown area, Houston’s premier destination for fashion, fine dining, luxury hotels, prominent office addresses and elegant high-rise living,” said John Breeding, president of Uptown Houston District. “Tilman Fertitta is setting the standard for luxury development. We are so pleased he has chosen the Uptown district as the area to build this incredible project.”

The 650,000-square-foot tower will accommodate 240-luxury hotel rooms, more than 120,000 square feet of boutique office space, and 22 residential apartment units, all with dramatic interior finishes and unobstructed views of the surrounding neighborhoods and Downtown. Upon entering The Post Oak, all will be captivated by an impressive open plaza with outdoor dining patios and lushly landscaped pedestrian areas. The tower’s lobby will be designed with exquisite finishes and furnishings, custom lighting, and views overlooking a stunning pool. Unique amenities will include a two-story spa and salon, signature restaurants and retail, over 1,000 parking spaces, and more.

The tower’s luxury hotel will feature a combination of 240-well-appointed rooms and suites generously ranging from 500 to 2,000 square feet. All rooms and suites feature five-fixture deluxe bathrooms, state-of-the-art audio visual technology, three televisions and separate sitting areas. Additionally, the hotel will offer a Presidential Suite and an impressive 4,000-square-foot, two-bedroom Chairman Suite with its own private elevator access, media room, exercise room, and private terrace. The Chairman Suite will serve as Houston’s finest luxury suite for visiting dignitaries, celebrities, and other VIPs.

Eleven stories in The Post Oak tower are designated for low density, Class A, commercial office space with high ceilings, offering boutique professional firms and businesses the ultimate office space in a prime, central location. All office tenants will enjoy exclusive 24-hour services including catering and room service, corporate concierge, and transportation needs. A separate secure entrance from the parking garage will provide direct access to the offices.

The tower’s luxurious 22 residential apartment units will set the highest standard for urban living. A mixture of one and two-bedroom units will range from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet. Residents will appreciate full kitchens, five-fixture deluxe bathrooms, large walk-in closets, five-star amenities and services, as well as close proximity to Uptown Park, Memorial Park, and The Galleria.

Adjacent to the tower, guests will enter the ballroom’s exclusive entrance under the porte-cochère to find an impressive 30,000-square-foot multi-function area perfect for any occasion. The over 16,000-square-foot main ballroom will be the largest in the area, complemented by two expansive pre-function areas, a second level 3,000-square-foot junior ballroom and 10,000 square feet of conference and breakout room space. Adding exclusive panache and distinction, a two-story auto showroom with floor-to-ceiling windows will display Bentley and Rolls-Royce automobiles from Post Oak Motor Cars (which is also located at the development) as part of one of the pre-function areas. An elegant women’s lounge with a separate bridal area and a private outdoor terrace will be featured. Designated ballroom parking will make the space easily accessible to all visitors and guests.

In addition to The Post Oak tower eateries, two highly celebrated restaurants will enhance the development and will be premiering early in the spring of 2017. Mastro’s Steakhouse will make its Texas debut in Houston with a 10,000-square-foot restaurant and spectacular outdoor dining. A favorite restaurant among celebrities, Mastro’s is a chic steakhouse that offers ‘an unparalleled dining experience’ praised for world-class service, highly acclaimed cuisine, and live entertainment in an elegant yet entertaining atmosphere. Mastro’s is revered in Beverly Hills, Chicago, Las Vegas, Malibu, Newport Beach, Manhattan, and Scottsdale.

Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks, a Houston institution and favorite seafood restaurant for more than 35 years, will relocate to The Post Oak development.
