Concierge Service

Life at Bleu Ciel feels like an extended stay at a high-end hotel, thanks to the community’s concierge service. These pros are like a personal assistant and event planner, all in one. Bleu Ciel’s concierges have connections across Dallas, so if there’s a hot new restaurant you’d like to try or a sold-out show you’re dying to see, they may be able to pull some strings. When you return home from a trip, allow them to restock your fridge with your usual groceries. Need a recommendation for a dog walking service or a local dry cleaner? They know the best in town. Hosting a dinner party? They will help you plan your event, down to securing the caterer.

Resort-Style Amenities

Head to the fifth floor to scope out some of the best amenities in town.

The pool deck embodies a Miami resort, with palm trees swaying around sparkling Junior Olympic-sized infinity pools. Relax on a partially submerged lounge chair, retreat to a shaded cabana, or sway in a hammock, all while enjoying panoramic views of Dallas.

A private wine tasting room transports residents to Napa Valley—the cool, dark cellar is flanked by wine racks on all sides. Residents can host private wine tastings here; refrigerated storage space is also available for rent, allowing private access to personal wine collections.

The state-of-the-art gym with a yoga room is a convenient way for residents to stay fit. Nearby, a lounge-meets-library area on the fifth floor is a contemporary take on a coffee shop. A resident-only spa offers limitless pampering opportunities, including a dry sauna, a wet spa, and a massage area.

Car lovers, rejoice: valet service at Bleu Ciel is professional and prompt, and the highly secure private garages within the master garage will put you at ease.

Most importantly, the homes themselves feature top-of-the-line amenities, with designer finishes, Miele appliances, Porcelanosa cabinetry, high-quality counters, floor-to-ceiling windows, and more. Glass-walled terraces are ideal for soaking up sunshine in the summer or curling up by the outdoor fireplace in the winter, and the views from every room are sweeping.

Neighborhood Perks

Bleu Ciel is nestled in the Harwood District, one of Dallas’ premier live-work-play neighborhoods with hot new restaurants just steps away. Dolce Riviera’s authentic Italian cuisine and drinks are best enjoyed on its giardino, an open outdoor lounge where greenery creates peaceful seclusion. The newly opened Te Deseo is a mecca of Latin cuisine in a lounge-like setting, including a patio with views of Harwood District and Victory Park. Happiest Hour, a Dallas favorite near the American Airlines Center, is a versatile restaurant and bar with something for everyone: concert-goers, sports lovers, and brunch crowds.

The Grove at Harwood is also adjacent to Bleu Ciel—this outdoor space (with volleyball courts, lush grass, and lawn games) frequently hosts local events. The Grove food truck serves up burgers and bites to guests, including snow cones in the summer.

The Katy Trail borders Bleu Ciel: 3.5 miles of walking and biking paths, cutting through Uptown and Downtown and shaded by trees. Residents enjoy direct access to the trail via the Harwood Trailhead, just through the landscaped gardens (designed by renowned Japanese landscape architect Sadafumi Uchiyama).

Getting around the Harwood District and beyond is a snap. An on-call electric GEM car service is now available to chauffeur residents around Uptown, Harwood District, Victory Park, and the Arts District.

The Bleu Ciel Community

Whether you’re accustomed to a big city (like L.A. or New York), relocating from Frisco or Plano, or downsizing from a Highland Park home, you’ll find like-minded residents here. Though the building’s residents range in age (including some up-and-coming young professionals), most are empty nesters or recently retired businesspeople.

Though ready to settle into a laxer lifestyle, these residents still enjoy being at the center of everything: dining, entertainment, and all things metropolitan. The lock-and-leave aspect of Bleu Ciel offers convenience and flexibility for the young at heart; residents are often jetting off around the world for the week, escaping to a second home for the weekend, or simply heading out for a night on the town.

Children are more than welcome at Bleu Ciel; visiting grandchildren are a common sight. The resort-style pool is pure child-friendly fun for those warm Dallas days.

Four-legged friends will also feel at home here, thanks to the direct Katy Trail access point as well as a landscaped dog park area to meet new friends.

Bleu Ciel strives to foster a sense of community with resident-only events and opportunities. Top chefs from Harwood District restaurants recently prepared highlighted entrees for a private tasting event. When Te Deseo opened, residents were treated to a first look experience at the restaurant. Pet lovers of Bleu Ciel participated in a dog-friendly walk/run to Happiest Hour on the Katy Trail. In the spring, yoga classes were held on the pool deck. No matter what’s hot and new—be it a restaurant, bar, show, or experience—Bleu Ciel residents will likely experience it before anyone else.

Bleu Ciel’s luxe, resort-style living is attracting new residents every day, and units are selling quickly. Ready to secure your home at Bleu Ciel? Learn more about available units here. Many homes are ready for move-in within 30 days, and prices start at $1,000,000.
