The privacy and comfort of a gracious home, the excitement of a vibrant city center, the amenities of a five-star resort—all of that awaits the new owners of Houston’s Residences at The Allen, which will be ready for occupancy in early 2023.

Located atop the luxe Thompson Houston hotel, with unobstructed 360-degree views, the 99 residences offer something unprecedented in the dynamic Texas metropolis. “As a visionary work of art and architecture, The Allen signals a new era in urban living, working and playing in Houston,” says Roberto Contreras, CEO of DC Partners, the project developer.

Within minutes of the downtown business district and uptown’s luxury shopping and dining, the Residences at The Allen encompass the best of Houston in one place.  It is where the sophistication of the theater district meets the prestige of River Oaks overlooking the serenity of the award-winning Buffalo Bayou Park—providing plenty of space for relaxation and renewal.

The Allen residents also have complete access to the offerings of the hotel, including an award-winning spa and holistic fitness center, three on-site dining venues helmed by noted chefs, room service and a one-acre pool deck with panoramic vistas of the city. A 24-hour concierge and valet are available to handle everything from deliveries and restaurant reservations to travel arrangements and dog walking. For the ultimate convenience in arriving and departing, the building has a helistop on the roof.

There are also special amenities for residents—including a private lobby with dedicated concierge, private resident-only elevator, resident lounges, a conference room and an indoor lap pool.

As for the residences themselves, a variety of floor plans range from 1- to 3.5-bedroom properties with multiple exposures to sunrises, sunsets and the city skyline. All the homes offer fine finishes of marble porcelain and quartz, Pedini cabinetry, luxe appliance brands such as Thermador and Gaggenau, and floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the unforgettable panoramas. State-of-the-art technology—for lighting, temperature and music controls, security systems and EV charging—power these truly “smart” homes. Private balconies—with innovative plumbed pet-relief stations and real grass—plunge pools and sky gardens are just a few of the unparalleled touches at The Allen, where prices range from $1.2 million to $16 million.

DC Partners, founded in 2011, is known for its portfolio of high-end and award-winning projects. “Our goal is to change the way Houstonians think about high-rise living and deliver a lifestyle that is representative of luxury hotel living without sacrificing all the privacy of your own home,” adds Contreras.

One of the many unique features of the Residences at The Allen is a state-of-the-art virtual immersion technology that allows buyers to walk through each of the units. While this technology allows potential buyers from around the world to experience the building as if they were there, it also provides homeowners the opportunity to select different finishes virtually and see them in their home at any given time of day.

“We wanted to be able to show clients the space, even if they were in Dubai or London,” says Sales Director Samuel Katz. “Being able to give them an immersive experience without a face-to-face tour is so important—especially now.”

Houston’s identity as a diverse, ever-evolving city is well known. The Residences at The Allen add one more forward-looking perspective to the urban mix, in a visually striking building that is destined to be an iconic landmark.
