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.

"This sky-rise will offer residents unrivaled 360° views from the spacious terraces, which will be among the largest in the US."

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.
