New $85 Million Luxury Tower is a Skyline Changer: Plush Living Reaches New Heights in Dallas
PaperCity | Josie Washburn | March 9, 2017
Dallas’ skyline just gained a glitzy addition with the unveiling of a brand new upscale apartment building. Luxury high-rise residential tower One Uptown officially opened its doors recently, bringing a new sky-high living option to the city.
The 20-story, $85-million tower, appropriately dubbed “a walker’s paradise,” aims to offer a first-class living experience on McKinney Avenue in the heart of Uptown. It’s also within walking distance of some of Dallas’ best outdoor fixtures including Klyde Warren Park and the Katy Trail, a Whole Foods, and other hot restaurant and nightlife spots.
One Uptown makes its mark with amenities like a rooftop pool, and a massive sky deck and lounge with impressive views of Dallas. If the sky-high looks weren’t enticing enough, the building also houses Southern Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao, and will soon welcome five star European restaurant Circo.
The curved-glass apartment tower, designed by architect Phil Shepard, boasts 196 tower residences and penthouse suites that range from a 571-square-foot studio apartment to a 1,993-square-foot penthouse. Rents range from $1,650 a month for the studio to nearly $10,000 a month for the largest penthouse.
On Thursday, April 20, two installations by Dallas-based artists will be revealed at One Uptown. The first is Brad Oldham‘s “Sunlight Prism,” a 17-foot-tall piece accompanied by a digital video loop, set to be located in the lobby.
Shane Pennington designed the second, “Uptown Moment,” a mirror-finish sculpture standing at 16 feet tall. The stainless steel monument will be on view outside, on the corner of McKinney and Routh Street.
