A Houston housing and hotel project reached a construction milestone this month, topping off the 35-story condo-hotel tower with a ceremonial beam.
A laser light show at the Residences at The Allen and the Thompson Houston hotel marked the occasion.
The $500 million project sits across six acres at Allen Parkway and Gillette Street in Houston, overlooking Buffalo Bayou Park. The hotel will feature 170 rooms and occupy the first 15 floors of the building.
The residences, on floors 16-35, will include 99 one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums and penthouses, ranging from 919 up to 10,000 square feet. Amenities include 24-hour concierge, valet and resident lobby separate from the hotel, plus room service, spa, pool deck, cabanas and restaurants. There also will be a helistop to accommodate drone deliveries.
Units are 55% sold. The hotel-condo is expected to be done in 2023.
The Allen is developed by DC Partners with investment from TQ Real Estate Development and Westmont Hospitality Group, according to a press release.
