The Dallas Morning News just recently featured an update on one of Dallas’ most highly-anticipated condo towers that’s being built on the north side of the rapidly developing Harwood District—Bleu Ciel. 

Being built by Harwood International, Bleu Ciel is just one of numerous new projects being built in the area, but is perhaps considered one of the more high-profile developments in the Hardwood District. 

 With construction expected to wrap up sometime this summer, Blue Ciel will add 150 luxury condos to the local housing landscape, which will offer between 1,373 and just over 5,800 square feet of living space.

The second phase of Hall Group’s Hall Arts development is set to begin, according to a recent report from BisNow. Earlier in the month, Hall Group officially broke ground on a new luxury condo tower and boutique hotel, of which both were designed by HKS Architects.

When finished, the condo tower, dubbed Hall Arts Residences, will stand 25 stories high and feature 44 luxury condominiums. Along with the Hall  Arts Hotel, the entire project is estimated to cost around $250 million, and will no doubt be a significant addition to the city’s fast-growing Arts District, which has seen more than its fair-share of development in recent years.

Phase 1 of the Hall Group project, called Plaza at Hall Arts, already included an 18-story, 500,000 square foot mixed use…

And from a location standpoint, homes for sale in Kessler Park also provides home owners with a close proximity to Trammell Crow Park, the Methodist Dallas Medical Center, the Dallas Zoo, the Stevens Park Golf Course, and even Dallas’ rapidly…

The DFW job market has been thriving lately, which was only further confirmed by a recent report from national payroll service company Paychex.

To help determine rankings, Paychex partners with IHS to calculate payroll information for about 350,000 businesses with fewer than 50 employees all across the U.S. and will then give each metro area an index number based on the…
