​​HOUSTON - Developers have unveiled more details about a $500 million mixed-use project planned near Buffalo Bayou Park.

Tianqing Real Estate Development LLC has partnered with Houston-based DC Partners to develop the massive project, which would rise on six acres at the southeast corner of Allen Parkway and Gillette St.

Plans for the mixed-use project are still in the works, said Acho Azuike, COO and managing director of DC Partners, a local real estate investment and development firm that specializes in foreign investors.

The joint partnership is meeting with several architects, including Gensler, Powers Brown Architecture and HOK, to develop a master plan for the project. However, Azuike outlined preliminary plans for the unnamed mixed-use project:

•    Luxury hotel, which will have between 150 and 180 hotel rooms
•    Office tower: The building would have 200,000 to 250,000 sf of Class A office space
•    Retail square footage has not been determined
•    Residential condo/apartment tower, or a mixed-use hotel-condo-apartment tower: This tower would have between 80 and 100 condo units and more than 100 apartment units.

Tianqing and DC Partners are planning to start construction on the mixed-use project in late 2017 or early 2018.
