In April 2015, just a few months after I started this gig, I noticed that Bleu Ciel’s prices had jumped. Well, it’s done happened again! Today saw a further 2 to 4.5 percent increase on top of the 15-ish percent they’d jumped since pricing was announced.
For the “teaser” units on the MLS that translates to …
Unit 1701 is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom whopper with 5,835 square feet. Before yesterday, it was $4.723 million; now it’s $4.951 million. A jump of $228,000. From a square foot perspective, what was $809 is now $848 per square foot, or a bump of $39.07 a square foot.
Unit 2803 is a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath unit with a sizeable 2,973 square feet. It’s jumped from $3,163,000 to $3,218,000 — a shade less than a 3 percent bump — a new $18.49 per square foot. However, by cost-per-square-foot, it’s the priciest of this group at $1,082 per square foot.
Unit 2606 is also a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home crammed into a more modest 2,231 square feet. It’s hardly worth mentioning its measly 2 percent rise from $2,064,000 to $2,099,000 — a mere $35,000. Almost tip money in this realm.
Unit 1804 is a three-bedroom, three-bath unit with a “my size” 1,903 square feet of space. What was $1,292,000 grew $59,000 to $1,351,000, or 4.5 percent.
Unit 2505 is a 1,537-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath “shoebox” that added $54,000 and is now listed at $1,252,000.
If you’re on a financial diet, there’s still unit 702. It’s a bit closer to the ground (well, 18 stories closer) than unit 2505, but the floorplan is nearly identical (just 10 square feet smaller). Literally across the floorplan “hallway” it’s a steal at $906,000 or one-third ($346,000) less. That $346,000 is all view, baby.
For all the doom and gloom some feel is skittering towards the Dallas real estate market, the Ciel is sure Bleu down on Harwood. Looks like Harwood has a winner as Dallas continues to concentrate sprawl upwards.
