As the highly anticipated redevelopment of Post Oak Boulevard nears completion, Uptown Houston is poised to become one of the world’s greatest urban centers. The vision for the project is to rebuild Post Oak Boulevard into an exquisitely designed, grand boulevard while creating a beautifully landscaped pedestrian environment, preserving existing automobile lanes and substantially improving transit service in order to address the continuing growth of Houston.
Post Oak Boulevard brings together natural beauty and social gathering. The cornerstone of the completed Boulevard will be its enhanced walkability and beautification. The boulevard’s beloved flowers and landscaping have been enhanced. Sidewalks along either side of Post Oak Boulevard are widened to 12 feet. Nearly 1,000 Cathedral Live Oak Trees line the thoughtfully landscaped pedestrian walkway, creating a uniform canopy. Extensive pedestrian lighting will increase foot traffic to Uptown’s unmatched dining and shopping attractions.
Paired with the iconic architectural masterpieces such as Giorgio Borlenghi’s Four Oaks Place, Phillip Johnson’s Post Oak Central and Williams Tower, Post Oak Boulevard is Houston’s Red Carpet to the World.
