HOUSTON - The Post Oak, a 35-story, 650,000-sf mixed-use tower, is underway near the Galleria. The ten-acre project will include 240 luxury hotel rooms, more than 120,000 sf of boutique office space and 22 residential apartment units.

Other notable amenities include a two-story spa and salon. There will be more than 1,000 parking spaces. Billionaire Tilman Fertitta — Chairman, President and CEO of Houston-based Landry's — is the developer of the project.

The hotel rooms and suites will range from 500 to 2,000 sf. There will also be a presidential suite and a 4,000-sf, two-bedroom chairman suite with private elevator access, a media room, an exercise room and a private terrace.

The residential units will range from 1,000 to 2,000 sf. The low-density, Class A office space will feature a separate secure entrance.

In addition to the eateries in the tower, two restaurants will be featured with their own locations on the property. Mastro’s Steakhouse will open its first Texas location in a 10,000-sf space on the property. Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks, located in the Uptown-Galleria area, will relocate to a 10,000-sf space in the development.

Elsewhere on the property, a ballroom and conference center will be adjacent to the tower.

It will include a main ballroom of more than 16,000 sf, the largest in the area.

The development will feature an open plaza, with outdoor dining patios, and landscaped pedestrian areas. Fertitta will preserve existing oak trees on the property and spend more than $1 million to transplant additional large oak trees.

The development will be along West Loop South with access from Loop 610, Holly Hurst St. and Hallmark Dr.

Landry’s Inc. headquarters building is already at 1510 W. Loop S. Landry's owns and operates more than 450 dining, entertainment, gaming and hospitality properties. It is the second-largest private employer in the Houston area.
