Ritz Tower

Holy moly, now this is living well! We love the Residences at the Ritz Carlton, as do many a millionaire and socialite in Dallas. The location is amazing, the views are gorgeous, and the amenities are matchless inside this exclusive condo development. And if you want to live there without the obligation of a mortgage, you can rent a prime unit for a whopping $10K a month!

Unit 702 inside this opulent building has two bedrooms, two full and one half baths, more than 2,100 square feet, and tons of marble everywhere. It’s fresh to the market from Dave Perry-Miller Intown Realtor Emily Ray Porter, who has also listed this unit for sale at $1.49 million.

3110 Thomas 119 Living

Walkable. Urban. Accessible. Mass Transit.

Did I miss any buzzwords that might have tipped you off that today’s Thursday Three Hundred is right in the middle of a very shoe-leather-friendly area?

When I think “walkable” and “Dallas,” I automatically think of the State Thomas area. It’s a fantastic neighborhood just south of Uptown that is super close to the Arts District and on the cusp of everything you want in an inner city setting. Wide sidewalks, patios, mass transit, shopping and dining — State Thomas is perfect.

Of course, this neighborhood has a reputation for being stuffed to the gills with historic buildings, but let me tell you, there are some fantastic modern properties to be seen, and this loft is one of them.

Thursday Three Hundred: Totally Glam 10th Floor Condo in Park Towers

Park Towers Exterior

Built in 1964, Park Towers Condominiums is a fantastic building heavy on the amenities, with a huge pool surrounded by a cluster of overhanging live oak trees, party rooms sporting their own china and crystal, and guest suites to put up friends and family. So you may be wondering, why is a single building called “Park Towers”?

That’s because, as Dallas highrise aficionado Nancy Martinez claims, initial plans included two buildings, although only one tower was built. Interesting!
