With construction on the tower underway, developer Craig Hall is showing off the first models for his luxury condominium high-rise in downtown Dallas’ Arts District.
The $250 million, 25-story building under construction on Flora Street will have about 44 condo units priced starting at $2 million.
“We are just now staring the sales process,” Hall said at a Monday afternoon tour of the model unit for the Hall Arts Residences. “We’ve already got a handful of reservations.”
The project will take just over two years to complete.
Dallas designer Emily Summers is doing the interiors for the residential units. And HKS architect Eddie Abeyta designed the sleek metal and glass tower.
“The purpose of a model is to engage the client you don’t know,” Summers said. “You try to focus on the views. What we try to do for them is offer great options.”
The mock up apartment located at Hall’s KPMG Plaza tower overlooks the construction site. It includes living and dining areas, a model kitchen and bathroom.
“This is probably one of the most premier sites in the entire country,” Abeyta said. “This is a special place for people to actually live here and be part of the heart and soul of the Arts District.
“The architecture is trying to be very simple and sophisticated,” he said. “It’s not trying to compete and overwhelm what already exists.”
Along with the condo tower, the construction includes a 183-room hotel that will front on Ross Avenue.
The condo tower will include restaurant and retail space on the ground floor along Flora.
“Three of the homes have their own swimming pool,” said Hall, including the 2-story unit he’s taking on the sixth floor.
