Houston-based apartment developer The Hanover Co. is planning a 37-story residential tower near the corner of Post Oak Boulevard and San Felipe.
The high-rise will be part of BLVD Place, a mixed-use development under construction at the high-profile intersection.
The building will have 236 apartments that will be larger than typical rental units, the developer said.
Solomon Cordwell Buenz of Chicago designed the glass tower, which will have "boutique hotel style" amenities, including a concierge and bellman, as well as a lounge and catering kitchen.
A 19,000-square-foot rooftop pool terrace will be atop an attached parking garage.
Construction will start this fall, with the project is set to open in 2011.
It will sit behind a Whole Foods Market, shops and restaurants that are planned for BLVD Place, a portion of which is under construction.
Wulfe & Co. is developing the 21-acre project. It's expected to have 500,000-square-feet of retail space, 200,000 square feet of office space and a hotel with condos.
