Just when you thought the transformation of Dallas’ older neighborhoods couldn’t get any better, well, it gets downright decked out in East Dallas!

Introducing Skyline Terraces, an exciting new master-planned community of 25 strikingly designed townhomes loaded with architectural drama and influences, each of them offering yet a new dimension in urban living — sweeping rooftop terraces, high-end accouterments, and magnificent views of the downtown Dallas skyline.  

Hence the name, Skyline by Dooley Developments, a young Dallas-based multi-unit end-user development company. This is Colin Dooley’s first Dallas development near completion. Others underway include 20 units at The Alto in Oak Lawn, 10 units at The Pradera at Bryan Place, The Oram at Greenville and Oram, behind HG Sply Co., the Luana in Trinity Groves, the Nove (“Nine”)  in Bishop Arts, and the Edge at White Rock. His Austin developments are The Legacy at St. John and Creekside.

Skyline Terraces are located in the city’s newest hot spot, the rapidly evolving, inner-eastern Ross Avenue precinct, minutes from downtown Dallas, thus only minutes away from the enticing dining, nightlife and cultural offerings of Uptown and Deep Ellum.

And did we tell you that you will park your car in your secure, two-car garage, slip on some shoes (or flip-flops), and just walk, walk, everywhere?

Skyline Terrace townhomes are custom-engineered from the ground up to the fourth-floor rooftop to be both models of efficiency and breathtakingly beautiful. Each unit is capped with a truly tranquil rooftop retreat structurally engineered to support a hot tub (three varieties of which are available for purchase), complete with future private hot tub access and exquisite views of downtown. Modern touches abound with a creative combination of concrete, wood, and steel, all designed to create a unique home in the heart of the city. An open and expansive floor plan creates a wonderful sense of light, which flows to and through the spacious rooms and abundant storage areas. Your new home also comes with that spacious two-car car garage we mentioned, a chef’s dream-style modern kitchen loaded with high-end appliances — steel, baby, stainless steel — and designer touches throughout.

In fact, I want to be a fly on the wall when you see the master bath. (more…)

Update, 10:50 am: With more rain and hail in the forecast, the folks at Cobalt Homes & Katie Aspen and Jeff Mitchell have decided to re-schedule tonight’s opening bash for March 22. Stay tuned for details, and please ask Mother Nature to give the real estate community a break!

Don’t forget to join me and Cobalt Homes, along with Katie Aspen, Jeff Mitchell, and more fine Real Estate folks for a very special event Wednesday evening introducing Camdale Court. These are a most unusual real estate product you simply have to see!
