HOUSTON | The Allen Phase I | 100m+ | 328ft+ | 100m+ | 328ft+ | Pro

Developer: Tianqing RED, DC Partners
Architect: Gensler
Type: Hotel, Residential, Office, Retail
Location: Allen Parkway and Gillette, near Downtown
Construction Timeline: Late 2017/Early 2018 Start Date - 2020 Completion

*Another foreign development company has chosen Houston to build their first U.S project.

Chinese firm will change Houston

Quote:
Tianqing Real Estate Development LLC (Tianqing RED), a US subsidiary of one of China's largest real estate companies, has acquired a prime location in Houston to build high-rise buildings of mixed use that will change the city's skyline in the next few years.

Tianqing RED recently closed on the purchase of the land on Allen Parkway, west of downtown and across from the newly improved green space Buffalo Bayou. It is the last track of undeveloped land of that scale at such a prime location in the city.

"The land is a rectangle with hard corners, sufficient depth and width for development. It has great views all around. To the north there is the Buffalo Bayou, to the south the Texas Medical Center, to the east downtown Houston, and to the west the financial district Galleria. We are very happy to be able to get our hands on it," said David Du, president of Tianqing RED.

A total of $500 million will be invested in the project. The planned first phase includes a luxury hotel of 150-180 rooms and a high-rise condo. Construction is expected to start by the end of 2017 or early 2018. Another high-rise condo, a class-A office building and possibly a luxury senior-living building will be built later.

Upon completion, there will be two condo towers with a total of 180 units along with the hotel, an office building and ground-level retail spaces. The project aims to become a new landmark in Houston.

EB-5, the popular immigration investment program among Chinese, will be used to raise part of the money for the project.

However, Du said Tianqing RED will not rely heavily on EB-5 for financing. When it gets ready to start construction, parent company Tianqing Group will guarantee and provide the remaining funds for the project, he said.

Renderings released Tuesday show a sleek development of glass and steel towers along a scenic 6-acre site on Allen Parkway.

DC Partners and Tianqing Real Estate Development are planning the $500 million-plus project whose first phase will include a luxury hotel and condominium tower, a retail pavilion and office building.

The HOK architecture firm is designing the project with "architecture never before seen in the Houston area," according to a statement. Transwestern Retail and Stream Realty Partners will handle retail and office leasing.

The project is proposed for the southeast corner of Allen Parkway and Gillette Street, across from Buffalo Bayou Park, roughly halfway between downtown and River Oaks.

Thompson Hotels will operate the project's hotel.

The condos will have balcony "plunge pools." The office tower will comprise more than 200,000 square feet of top-class space.

Future phases call for a multifamily high-rise and medical office building. See pg 64.
