There’s nothing quite like the feeling of shaking off the world by valeting your car at your swank high-rise building, taking the elevator up, and eating up the city views as you unwind with a glass of vino. If it sounds luxurious, it is. But it’s not outside the realm of reality.
Take the Azure, for instance. Completed in 2005, this high-end high-rise in Uptown has some of the best amenities, with a glorious pool deck that offers incredible views of Uptown, a fitness center where any personal trainer would love to help you sweat it out, plus a valet and concierge.
But you don’t have to pay upwards of a million to feel like you’re living in the lap of luxury at the Azure. In fact, Allie Beth Urban’s Ani Nosnik has a beautiful one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath unit on the market that costs less than many homes in the M Streets, gives you more security and amenities, and puts you close enough to downtown that you could very well ditch the car when the weather is irresistible (like today).
