The proposed address for the new structures is 1600 West Loop, but the tower, conference center, and garage would be tucked back from the freeway toward Hollyhurst St., according to a site plan (above, tilted clockwise 90 degrees) submitted to the city. Along with it, the developers have submitted a variance application asking for a reduced setback for the development along Hollyhurst.

After giving a downer of an interview to Bloomberg a few weeks back, Tilman Fertitta tells the Chronicle, "the sky is falling, but I'm going to build, anyway."

So that and the Amegy Bank building are going up across from each other simultaneously? Did oil prices spring back to $100 a barrel this afternoon?

3/6 by Javi Kawai on Flickr. This has actually been utility work for the project.

Fertitta's new tower to offer a wealth of luxury

rom his spacious office on the top floor of his Uptown headquarters, Tilman Fertitta will have a bird’s-eye view of this area’s newest flashy real estate development: his own.

The 10-acre site, one of the rare, largely undeveloped parcels off the West Loop, will include a glistening multiuse tower with 240 luxury hotel rooms and suites and, for the highest-rolling guests, a private elevator to whisk them to a 4,000-square-foot “Chairman Suite” with its own fitness center.

The tower also will feature 11 floors of “boutique” office space catering to elite tenants who can afford the pricey space and such perks as chartered helicopter or jet service from a private fleet owned by the developer or luxury car service. Office workers staying late will be able to order a New York strip from the steakhouse just a few steps away.

Fertitta’s latest high-profile project, to be called The Post Oak, combines much of what the billionaire restaurant and casino magnate has become known for over the years: restaurants, hotels and expensive cars.

Gensler is providing master planning, architecture and interior design services for the project, which is scheduled to be completed by late summer 2017, and Tellespsen is the general contractor. Work preparing the site for development has already started.

That 'diamond tiara' crown is horrendous and needs a re-design.

It's the only thing not bland about the whole structure.

The 35 story height appears to include that "crown", so there must be executive offices up there. Or a restaurant.

Sometimes the mechanical penthouse can be counted as a floor. I have been on projects as such.

That would be disappointing. Nobody wants to cater to dining patrons with a skyline view anymore.
