As I mentioned today in my CultureMap column, we have a new hot celebrity condo in Victory: the one that belongs to the actual millionaire Victory developer himself, Ross Perot, Jr.
Back in February, Ross Perot Jr. quietly popped this 11,807 square foot W penthouse, the entire 30th floor, on the market for a cool $10, 950,000. Built in 2004, it has five bedrooms, seven full baths and three half baths.
There are two giant living areas, two dining areas and balconies on all sides. HOA dues are $8,259 a month — yes, they are mandatory and well worth it. The Perots enlisted Dallas-based designer Emily Summers to design a sleek, modern décor inspired by the sky and to showcase the couple’s breathtaking collection of British contemporary art.
Summers noted in this not-to-be-missed Architectural Digest 2008 spread on the Perot pad that the art collection is loaded with blues, a love of Perot, say friends, because of his passion for aviation.
The condo takes up the entire 30th floor, and with incredible light flowing into every molecule, the penthouse is one of the brightest stars of Dallas sky-high living.
Of course, it is also one of the most expensive condos in town: $927 per square foot. Tim Headington sold 2525 North Pearl, for just under $8.6 million, or about $1038 per square foot. Kinda makes the Perot penthouse seem like a deal, eh?
