La Colombe d'Or to take luxury to new heights - 34 stories

Quote:
More than three decades ago, a New Orleans native who had been practicing law in Houston turned a stately mansion on Montrose Boulevard into an exclusive boutique hotel modeled after a small inn and restaurant in the south of France.

Now the hotel is expanding with a more modern bent: a luxury residential tower.

Steve Zimmerman, the hotel's longtime owner, and real estate development firm Hines said Monday they will partner on what will be a 34-story building to be called the Residences at La Colombe d'Or.

With 285 high-end apartments, the building is scheduled to break ground during the second quarter of next year.

The new tower is being planned for a site just behind the original mansion in place of a parking lot and the ballroom, which Zimmerman says will be replaced on another site nearby at some point in the future. The owner plans to save the existing wood paneling and fixtures to reuse in the new ballroom. The hotel will remain in place.

As part of the new development project, the hotel and restaurant will undergo a $10 million renovation and expansion.

The high-rise will connect to the hotel through a series of amenity areas, including an art gallery and outdoor plaza with fireplace. Another 14,000-square-foot outdoor greenspace is planned for the northernmost portion of the site.

With a design by the Munoz & Albin architecture firm, the new building will also have 17 additional luxury rooms for guests of the hotel.

Highrise apartments will replace La Colombe d'Or historic ballroom
Boutique hotel will get $10 million renovation
Published 6:38 pm, Friday, January 26, 2018

The historic ballroom of Montrose Boulevard's boutique hotel La Colombe d'Or will see its last waltz at a private party this weekend.

Le Grand Salon de la Comtesse, an 18th-century Rococo room with walls of English oak paneling, gild-ed-frame mirrors and grand chandeliers.

The salon is named for the French-Belgian princess La Comtesse Elisabeth Greffulhe, who is immortal-ized as a character in Marcel Proust's "Remembrance of Things Past."

Oil tycoon John Mecom Sr. brought the 45x65 feet room over in pieces in the 1960s. His son sold it to Houston businessman Steve Zimmerman in the 1990s, who ensconced it in a stucco building adjacent to his hotel and restaurant. Starting Monday, it will be dismantled and stored to make way for a new 34-story luxury apartment building.
