Following this week’s report from the HBJ that the Loews hotel chain is currently considering an Uptown locale, a sharp-eyed reader points to a lot previously marked for 2 more towers to keep the BBVA Compass building company, just north of 2200 Post Oak Blvd. The land has been owned by Loews since 2014 (or by someone using the address of the company’s NYC headquarters); a tipster separately tells Swamplot that the company has been pricing out construction work on that particular spot, though nothing was official as of mid-May.
Architecture firm Ziegler Cooper has posted some renderings (including the one above) of a mixed use project apparently designed for the same BBVA-adjacent land (though labeled only as Confidential Hotel & Mixed Used Development). TRC Capital (formerly The Redstone Company) currently has some very similar renderings more prominently displayed on its website, once again labeling the residential piece of the project as the Perennial Hotel and Apartments, along with another office tower marked as 2100 Post Oak:
Here’s a larger version of that rendering from Ziegler Cooper of the 2100 Post Oak office tower — the drawing faces west between the residential tower and BBVA:
Another rendering focuses more on the Perennial tower, with 2100 Post Oak peeking around the edge of BBVA, and Hines’s One Post Oak Central visible on the right:
Other renderings show only the hotel, with the office tower represented as a ghostly box:
