The Allen is a $500 million-plus, six-acre, mixed-use project going up near Buffalo Bayou Park in Houston. It comes from Houston-based DC Partners, known for their luxury highrise buildings, such as the award-winning Arabella in the River Oaks District, Astoria in the Galleria and Marlowe in downtown.
Now welcome the most innovative hotel-condo project yet, The Residences at The Allen — right in the heart of the most exciting new development in the Bayou City.
The Allen will include five towers, including an awe-inspiring, 99-unit condominium building atop the Thompson Houston luxury hotel, a state-of-the-art office building, a lifestyle pavilion featuring the nation’s leading fitness club, roof top dining, top restaurants and high-end, luxury retail stores. DC Partners is developing the project in partnership with Tianqing Real Estate Development and Westmont Hospitality Group.
Situated directly overlooking Buffalo Bayou Park, the Lifestyle Pavilion will be the first of the five towers to open in The Allen, with it slated to debut in 2021. Not far behind will be the second tower ― a 35 story Hotel Condo Tower, with its upper floor condominium Residences at The Allen (with commanding views on floors 16 to 35). The condos will be open by the end of 2022, and the lower section (floors 8 to 15) will debut as the Thompson Hotel by 2023.
