The urban lifestyle has become increasingly popular to today’s home buyers, especially those who are younger and prefer to be in the middle of all the action. Aside from all the nightlife and having plenty of things to see and do nearby, though, there are plenty of additional advantages to living in a downtown environment, which above all include walkability and often times a close proximity to the workplace.
Housing in a location like downtown Dallas, however, has many more limitations than many suburban options, starting with privacy and space. Depending on where you’re looking, condo, lofts, and apartments dominate the real estate landscape, which of course like characteristics like front and backyards and private garages.
Even still, many downtown Dallas condo buildings have incredible lifestyle amenities that certainly make up for not having a backyard or the kind of privacy you get from a singe-family home. And if you’re someone who might be in the market for one of these sleek and stylish new places, here’s a look at what we consider the Top 10 high-rises in Dallas:
Probably the most recognizable residential high-rise in Dallas, The Azure also happens to be located in one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods—Uptown. Standing 31 stories high, The Azure was finished back in 2007 and houses some of the coolest condos in town. And as you might expect, the common amenities here are also nothing short of miraculous, also boosting the appeal and desirability of one day calling this location home.
As one of the newer condo towers in Dallas, 3700M has it all. Standing 21 stores high and home to an incredible mixture of chic and stylish condo residences, 3700M might actually be known more for its list of top-notch amenities more than anything else, which include a business center, a clubroom, concierge, a fire pit, a rooftop deck, a full fitness center, a rooftop swimming pool, a yoga room, and more!
A historic building that was built all the way back in 1913, the rich history surrounding this remarkable Gothic-style tower is reason enough to consider this one-of-a-kind building for your next place to call home. But despite featuring 175 totally renovated condo residences, it’s not always easy to find an available unit inside what’s now one of the more sought-after buildings!
Ltd Edition 2505
Easily one of the most anticipated residential developments around the time LTD Edition No. 2505 was built, this highly-acclaimed Dallas high-rise has set a new standard in luxury living. Designed by renowned architect Siamak Hariri, there’s really nothing that compares to this modern work of art anywhere else in Dallas, making it that much more of a special opportunity for luxury condo buyers to consider.
At 42 stories high, Museum Tower ranks as the 15-tallest structure in Dallas and just the second tallest all-residential building. Finished back in 2013, Museum Tower was designed by architect Scott Johnson and is home to 115 very stylish residential condo units. Residences here range from 1,650 to 8,700 square feet, so for most buyers considering the building, having enough living space is rarely an issue when it comes to condos at the one-and-only Museum Tower.
Scheduled to be completed in 2016, Bleu Ciel is a spectacular downtown condo building that was designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Standing 33 stories high and home to 158 condo units, this unique tower might actually be one of the jaw-dropping buildings in Dallas, truly offering its residents true luxury living at its finest.
As one of the premiere high-rises in the Design District, 1400 Hi Line is a popular option to consider in one of the more up-and-coming neighborhoods in all of Dallas. Finished back in 2012, 1400 Hi Line stands 23 stories high and is home to 314 incredible apartment residences. As a somewhat newer building, the lifestyle amenities here are also top notch and include a rooftop deck, a fire pit, a clubroom/entertainment space, a rooftop pool, and of course a state-of-the-art exercise facility.
