Just hitting the resale market is a coveted corner patch of urban sky on the 24th floor of Fort Worth’s premiere, sold out Omni Residences at 1301 Throckmorton Street. At 1,645 square feet, No. 2402 is hardly compact. Dramatic 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows frame the Fort Worth cityscape to the south and add to the illusion of infinite space. From the eastern front, on a cool, clear day, vistas beginning with the extensive rail and freeway networks feeding the city, can extend all the way to Dallas.
Large-scale rectangles of stone attractively pave the vestibule floor. The bijou color palette of the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath aerie is the inspiration of Atlanta designer Alison Baker. Rich espresso hardwood floors run throughout the open living plan. A terrace, deep enough to install a second outdoor dining area, wraps the unit.
Ebony cabinets, Viking stainless appliances, and specialty species stone give the open kitchen a distinctive, modern look. The island terminates in a pull-up bar.
The ample master bedroom easily accommodates a king-sized bed and a pair of large bedside cabinets. The master bath with large glass-enclosed shower, deep tub, and separate vanities is a luxurious composition of subtle shades of white and gray/white marbles.
The tightness of the guest bedroom passes nearly unnoticed, mitigated by floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. A large bath lies opposite. Remote-controlled museum shades retract into inset pockets throughout the unit. Heavy 8-foot doors complete the inventory of high-end details. Oh, and move-in ready? The unit is being sold with its designer furnishings.
As for amenities, the Omni is unequaled. Twenty four-hour access to the hotel restaurant and concierge service, housekeeping, gym, and pool — separate from the hotel — are a few of the VIP resident perks. Add in the four in-building restaurants, and one could pass days without leaving the building. Two below-ground parking spots come with the unit.
Unit 2402 is offered at $949,000 by listing Agent Allison Hayden with Briggs Freeman Sothebys International Realty
