Zadok Announces New Mixed-Use Development

Zadok Post Oak development[2]

Iconic Houston jeweler Zadok has announced plans to build a mixed-use development on the reinvigorated Post Oak Boulevard. Groundbreaking of the five-story, 112,000-square-foot, Michael Hsu-designed building will take place in August, at 1801 Post Oak, the former location of Gerald Hines’ Post Oak Row strip center.


The Zadok family acquired the property from Hines nearly a decade ago. “Since purchasing this prime parcel, we’ve carefully considered numerous partnership opportunities, ranging from luxury hotels to office towers,” said Dror Zadok in a statement. “We’re so happy to have made the decision to retain full ownership and creative control.”

Plans for the development will capitalize on the redesigned Post Oak’s pedestrian-friendly elements, including tree-lined sidewalks and a hidden parking garage. Across from the new Zadok store, which will double the size of its current footprint, Hsu is including a pair of adjoining two-story restaurant spaces — with big patios! — and nearly 70,000 square feet of office space above it all.

The development — with a facade of brick, glass and cut stone that is native to Texas — will aim for LEED Silver certification. “We believe the scale and quality are very much in keeping with this stretch of Post Oak,” says Dror, “and truly complement the world-class neighborhood that Uptown Houston has become.”
