While the rest of the city was getting drenched by Wednesday night storms, we sipped wine in the Dorothy Draper- designed Penthouse of the Stoneleigh Hotel, drooling over the boards and renderings of Dallas newest high rise condo, The Residences at The Stoneleigh, and honor The Rise School.
To re-launch, developer Mehrdad Moayedi hosted a reception honoring supporters of The Rise School of Dallas. The Rise School is a nonprofit organization providing the highest quality of early childhood education services to children with Down Syndrome or other developmental disabilities and to children without disabilities.
And the glitterati were out in full force, hugging on the man I call St. Stoneleigh, Mehrdad Moayedi, his lovely wife who also loves real estate (and has found half his deals) and also his mother (who I found out makes the Persian pomegranate chicken dish I love so much) as well as the dapper Kay Zafar. Yes, he has a pony tail and totally thinks he’s Steven Segal. Just love him. Let’s call him Mr. Stoneleigh. More than 200 guests packed the event including the ageless Ebby Halliday, Newt Walker, Rise School co-founder Wendy Poston, Allie Beth Allman, Elaine & Bill Everitt, Clay Stapp and that gorgeous leggy model wife of his, Irmgard Arthur and Ira Archer, Cathleen K. Witte, Mickey Munir, Michael Munir and his wife, Debbie, Linda & Jim Hobbs, Jim Lites, Beth & Ron Hull, Jennie Galbraith and Janine Turner. And moi.
Construction on the The Stoneleigh is underway and scheduled to be completed in ten months. Look for twenty-two stories of classic luxury with every amenity. Residences at The Stoneleigh will offer uncompromising service with all the convenience of living in a hotel. Homeowners will have full access to all of the services at the landmark Stoneleigh Hotel, as well, which reminds me to check out the Stoneleigh spa. You know, try before you buy.
Sharif-Munir and Mehrdad’s Crescent are doing all the finish-out, and I hear the marketing of the Stoneleigh is going to be very limited to a few select Allie Beth agents. Who will those agents be? Stay very tuned…
