1661 Tanglewood stands 34 stories above the historic neighborhood of Tanglewood and the Uptown District. The well-located site provides expansive views of Houston’s green suburban forest and proud skyline. Stone and brick eclipse glass and steel. Forty Tuscan columns frame a distinct colonnade to complement Uptown’s modern cityscape.
Building on a proud family tradition of bold vision, this luxury residential tower will offer mansions in the sky accommodating every comfort of urban living, the latest landmark in the continuing story of Tanglewood. Classical architecture is conveyed through generous proportions of grand space, elegant appointments, meticulous craftsmanship, and dedicated staff.
The building welcomes residents through a grand entrance attended by full-time door and lobby staff. Across the expansive ground floor, rich amenity spaces set the tone. The spaces are defined by marble pilasters, bas-reliefs, custom upholstery by Rose Tarlow, a bespoke crystal chandelier, and a curated mix of rare antiques. Impeccable marble, onyx, and hardwoods extend all the way through the elevator lobby. Every detail, every finish, and every element show thoughtful curation for a timeless effect.
“This is a handsome, building. Its changing planes and sturdy materials provide technical advantages beyond the formality and permanence of the architecture,” says Guy Jackson, AIA Principal of Jackson Ryan Architects.
The fine proportions of each residential floor plan give residents generous expanses of space for living, entertaining, and collecting. The residences exceed the typical high rise, with interior spaces that rival Tanglewood or River Oaks homes. Uniquely designed floor plans beckon the most discerning buyer with lavish scale, including soaring ceilings as high as 12½ feet, primary suites, indoor/outdoor entertaining, multiple fireplaces, wine rooms, butler pantries, opulent bathrooms, and dressing closets.
Residents can relax and socialize in a 75-foot swimming pool with a hydro-massage spa on a sweeping top-floor deck—perfect for taking in panoramic views of Houston. Resort seating provides an ample mix of shade and Texas sun along with a personal fitness studio that accommodates a breadth of cardio, strength, crossfit, and yoga activities. Residents may reserve the renowned Farrington Room for private celebrations, events, or simply an evening social. Its 11 separate seating areas, catering kitchen, and bar are at the ready. All within the majestic building crown created by 40 monumental columns and featuring dramatic architectural lighting.
1661 Tanglewood bridges Post Oak Boulevard’s vibrant walkability in the Uptown District and Tanglewood Boulevard’s shaded neighborhood promenade. Uptown Houston epitomizes the city’s spirit: a wellspring of opportunity, an icon of high fashion, and a destination for local tastemakers and international travelers. Its signature chrome arches and floating discs above its streetscape beckon with wide pedestrian walkways lined with flourishing flowers, shrubs, and trees.
Home to landmark properties such as the Galleria and the soaring Williams Tower, it is now a defining urban center for shoppers, diners, travelers, and business people to explore. It is fitting that 1661 Tanglewood will soon complement this remarkable skyline. The first sections of Tanglewood homeowners set the standard for Uptown’s early growth; this next phase will see them soar to new heights in a landmark high-rise.
