Tight High-Rise Inventory Means Less Choice: Are You Moving On Up?

By Jon Anderson / August 16, 2019 / 3 Comments

If you’re looking for a Dallas high-rise home so you can get as far off the ground as possible, be prepared to shell out big bucks or live in close quarters.  In parts one and two, I outlined how Dallas has relatively few high-rise listings, and because of a lack of new high-rise construction, Dallas […]

Tight High-Rise Inventory Means Less Choice: Luxury Living in the Sky

By Jon Anderson / August 15, 2019 / 0 Comments

As Dallas becomes more dense, high-rises should become the choice for more residents. The problem is that Dallas isn’t really building for-sale condo high-rises outside the ultra-luxury market. As noted in part one, there are currently just 133 high-rise condos on the market by my count – that’s it from $159,000 to $9.2 million. That’s […]

Exclusive: Smoke on the Water — 3015 Cedar Springs’ Perot Plans and Turtle Creek Gardens Snatched Up

Way back, a rather large mansion occupied the northwest corner of Cedar Springs and … well … Cedar Springs (or Turtle Creek depending on your map). It’s sorta across the street from The Renaissance condos.  For as long as I’ve been coming to Dallas (the mid-1980s) it’s always been an empty lot.  Apparently that’s about […]

Smoke on the Water? Part 1: 10 Acres Ripe for the Picking

By Jon Anderson / June 19, 2015 / 1 Comment

Where there’s smoke, there’s gonna be fire.  As Candy recently wrote, 2505 Turtle Creek is finally set to become the Limited Edition, the über-luxury high-rise by first-time (in Dallas) high-risers from Toronto Great Gulf. But with 10-acres of smoldering land ready to ignite, the Limited Edition may be just the beginning for this tail-end of […]
