DALLAS | Bleu Ciel | 114m | 374ft | 30 fl | T/O

A look at Harwood International's new Bleu Ciel development

Quote:
When I was out and about scouting the site of Harwood International's latest project -- a 33-story luxury high-rise condo tower in the Harwood District adjacent to Uptown -- I found a large billboard with blue sky and not much else to allude to the grandiose plans orchestrated by Paris-based architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte.

Wilmotte, through his firm Wilmotte & Associes S.A., has teamed up with Harwood's internal design team to create the signature building that promises residents a piece of sky in Dallas.

Now, the team marketing the property has sent out a long-awaited rendering of the tower, which will bring an estimated 158 luxury residences to the northwest corner of Wolf and MicKinnon streets. The tower is named Bleu Ciel.

Construction on Bleu Ciel is scheduled to begin this fall.

That seems a little much but it certainly could be. The height noted above is a nominal approximation. Easy enough to adjust when a true height is confirmed.

New Bleu Ciel details released ahead of fall construction



Quote:
Sales have started at Bleu Ciel and now the countdown is on to construction, scheduled to commence this fall.

And with that tidbit of news comes new details on some of the homes’ high-end features. For Bleu Ciel‘s “Sky-Rise” series, residents will enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows and massive outdoor terraces that will reach a whopping 7,500-square-feet. Complete with a fireplace, these outdoor spaces will be the place to enjoy the 33-story tower’s impressive views of the city.

“Bleu Ciel is located at the highest vantage point overlooking Uptown and Downtown Dallas,” explains Harwood International CEO Gabriel Barbier-Mueller. “This sky-rise will offer residents unrivaled 360 degree views from the spacious terraces which will be among the largest in the US.”

We also know Bleu Ciel will be the city’s first high-rise designed by a French architect: Paris-based Jean-Michel Wilmotte, whose past work includes: The Ferrari Sporting Management Center, Le Lutetia Hotel, And the La Réserve Hotel.

Any indication of ground-level retail or street activation? Uptown has all these great designs but it seems like they miss out on critical frontage.
