The Allen Condos, Hotel & Retail Pavilion

by Kat Phelps, Marketing Manager

DBR is working with HOK and DC Partners to provide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services as well as energy modeling for The Allen, a new mixed-use development in Houston, Texas. DBR completed two phases of this development, a retail pavilion, and a tower with a luxury hotel operated by Thompson Hotels and private condominiums.

The retail pavilion is a 3-story, 51,340-square-foot building that comprises retail spaces, restaurants, and a high-end fitness facility. Also incorporated into the pavilion are a 33,065-square-foot below-grade parking garage and a 16,860-square-foot roof terrace overlooking public areas.

The pavilion features street-level restaurant space with expanded patio space to accommodate outdoor dining and access to the nearby Buffalo Bayou Park. The detail of electrical power and landscape lighting are provided along pedestrian pathways and for public art installations which encourage community activity around the pavilion site and connections to the park.

Located at 1775 Allen Parkway, the Residences at The Allen and the Thompson Houston Hotel will serve as the anchor for this master-planned development. The 35-story, 570,340-square-foot hospitality and residential skyscraper houses 99 luxury condos, 16 penthouses, and 172 hotel rooms. The Thompson Hotel will occupy floors 8-15, while floors 16-35 will house The Residences at The Allen.

Amenities for the condo/hotel building include 24-hour concierge and room service, a spa, a pool deck with cabanas, individual balconies with lavish plunge pools, pet washing stations, storage units, and more. Both the hotel and condos will have access to restaurants, views of the city skyline, terraced gardens, a 69,962-square-foot basement parking garage, and a 129,102-square-foot podium parking garage, which connects to the pavilion for easy access.

The pavilion opened in late 2021 and the hotel and condos are expected to be completed by late 2023 to early 2024.
