Dallas-based developer and investor Harwood International is set to develop a new 33-storey condominium tower, Bleu Ciel, in Dallas this autumn.
The Blue Ciel was designed in collaboration with Paris-based Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Dallas-based HDF. It will be located in the city’s Harwood district.
Harwood International CEO and founder Gabriel Barbier-Mueller said Dallas is ready for another iconic architectural masterpiece to follow buildings by major international architects in the UK, Italy and Holland.
The skyscraper will neighbour the city’s entertainment destinations such as the Katy Trail, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and the design and art districts.
The high-rise structure will feature 158 residences offering two and three-bedroom homes in sizes ranging from 1,300ft² to 7,000ft², and terraces reaching nearly 7,500ft².
Barbier-Mueller said that Bleu Ciel is located at the highest vantage point overlooking uptown and downtown Dallas and is its first high-rise designed by a French architect.
"This sky-rise will offer residents unrivaled 360° views from the spacious terraces, which will be among the largest in the US," Barbier-Mueller said.
Other amenities at the building will be two junior Olympic-size pools with cascading water features, cabanas, hot tub, poolside kitchen and grills; a spa designed by Quintessence Spa Group; and a 12,000ft² park featuring an urban grocery, restaurant, juice bar and a bike shop.
In addition to this, residents will be able to enjoy services such as a premier fitness centre, poolside service, residential grocery delivery and takeout, private garages, wine tasting room, private boardroom, on-site dog run, event space with private catering, restaurant, concierge services and valet parking.
