5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Living in a High Rise in Plano (Yes, Plano!)

Get ready for the highrise living.

If you’ve driven through Uptown Dallas lately, you’ve probably noticed quite a few luxury residential high rises. (They’re everywhere!) And for good reason—empty nesters and busy business executives are looking for a spot to hang their hat without the fuss of homeownership. But head north of 635, and the residential towers start to disappear. If you live in Plano (or you’ve always wanted to), there’s now an option to live the lock-and-leave lifestyle at the 27-story Windrose Tower at Legacy West. But why consider it? Here are the top five reasons to say goodbye to your sprawling estate for a condo in the sky.

Never (or rarely) get in your car.

Seriously. You won’t have to. Ideally situated on the corner of Windrose Ave. and Headquarters Dr., Windrose Tower sits steps away from Legacy West’s 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, and entertainment. From lunch, brunch, casual, and fine dining to live music, there’s an option for everyone in Plano’s newest entertainment and dining destination. Don’t forget about The Shops at Legacy! The City of Plano recently approved a conceptual park that will expand over the Dallas North Tollway connecting these two destinations, which nearly doubles the options within walking distance. Plus, you’re doing your part to reduce the carbon footprint.

Lock it and leave it.

What exactly does a lock-and-leave lifestyle entail? Imagine a staff of highly-trained employees to help fulfill all of your daily needs. Whether you’re headed out on a two-week tour of Europe or going on a quick weekend getaway, the attentive concierge and management team is at your service. While you’re gone, rest easy knowing storms, leaky roofs, broken pool pumps, stopped gutters, and all the hassles of home ownership are gone. At Windrose Tower, walk out your front door and leave the stress behind you; simply lock and leave.

It’s like living in a five-star hotel.

If living in a hotel á la Eloise has always been a fantasy, this comes pretty close. Within the property, a valet is always waiting to assist you with your automotive needs. The doorman greets you and your guests 24 hours a day, ensuring a very controlled arrival. The grounds–including the amenity deck landscaping–is always in immaculate condition, appropriately changing with the seasons. For more curated needs, rely on the concierge; he or she is ready to assist you with making reservations, finding a florist, suggesting a dog sitter, or coordinating housekeeping. At Windrose Tower, you’re investing in more than real estate. You’re investing in a lifestyle.

Entertain with no fuss.

If you’re used to a larger home with multiple options for entertaining, Windrose has that covered too. Choose from multiple spaces to host guests, such as poolside under the cabanas with summer kitchens, or perhaps at the golf lounge for a virtual round of 18 anywhere in the world. The owner’s pub is also sure to be a hit, where owners can play billiards and shuffleboard while watching multiple games on one of the many televisions. You can even pour your favorite Cab or shake up a martini in the bar, which is fully stocked with glassware and mixers. Just BYOB/W/L, and you’re ready to go. For those seeking wellness, the fitness center will feature state-of-the-art fitness equipment, separate men’s and women’s locker rooms with steam saunas, and a private treatment room for private therapy sessions.
