Is your ideal getaway Soho, South Beach, or Sicily? There’s a unique high-rise home for every inspired standard of living. Art philanthropists, social butterflies, world travelers, and regular hard-working urbanites can enjoy the good life in these luxury properties. Three new developments offer distinct locations and lifestyles:
An urban resort will rise high above Uptown Dallas. Joseph Gulloto of Azure notes, “The architecture [will be] very modern. It’s a dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass building 375′ tall… the only building to get variance for height above 240′ in neighborhood.” These hyper-cool condos will feature huge terraces with glass fireplaces, private garages, lush landscaping and reflecting pools. The amenities level sports a junior Olympic pool with private cabanas, gym, library, lounge, movie theatre and entertainment room, and unbelievable signature water features.
Between Park Cities and Preston Hollow, Turtle Creek Boulevard will welcome a lovely Italianate mid-rise. Listing agent Ned Cammack describes the property as “close to resort style living.” “It’s in the unique location the old Il Sorrento restaurant,” says Mr. Cammack, “and the Italian influence is reflected in the stone and stucco contemporary Mediterranean design.” The traditional Italian architectural elements of limestone masonry and cast stone details will create a serene and sophisticated setting. A fifth floor skyline terrace with views of downtown enhances the luxe atmosphere.
Patrons of the arts have long awaited this extraordinary residence. “It’s right in the heart of the Arts District,” says Greg Greene of Turtle Creek Holdings. “This is an enclave in a very vibrant community.” Museum Tower, true to its name, will sit amidst the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meyerson Symphony. Owners will be treated to a private on-site park and a full complement of luxury amenities, as well as world-class art institutions right at the front door. “Culture is just so vital in the development of a city,” notes Mr. Greene.
Time is Money
As work creates increasing demands on time and sanity, it’s fabulous to finally come home Fridays. Time at home is truly leisure when residents can rely on hotel-worthy amenities. Properties like The Stoneleigh offer a full menu of practical and pampering services. Though The Stoneleigh Hotel and The Stoneleigh Residences will both feature luxury amenities, the tower residents will have separate services to assure privacy and peace. Residents will have full use of time saving concierge, housekeeping, laundry, pet-boarding and on-site banking services. “All these delights are surprisingly affordable,” notes Blanche Evans with Allie Beth Allman Realty. “Homeowners pay no more for extraordinary hotel-affiliated services than they would for ordinary high-rise HOA.”
