For nearly a decade, Hard Rock Café Dallas was a local cultural icon—an entertainment destination with “The Supreme Court of Rock & Roll” famously etched into the front of the statuesque building accented with red- carpet front steps. Everyone knew where to find the Hard Rock Café on McKinney Avenue. Today, in the same desirable location, is another iconic building synonymous with Dallas’ sought-after Uptown lifestyle. Located at the corner of McKinney Avenue and Routh Street, One Uptown is an established, condominium high-rise that has quickly become one of Dallas’ most modern and sought-after living experiences. Custom designed to embody the vivacious spirit of Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood, One Uptown is a 20-story, first-class residence ready for move-in. “This is an unparalleled location that can’t be reproduced,” says Fernando Gonzalez, Vice President of Al Coker and Associates. “The world is your oyster; Uptown is your living room.”
One Uptown is the creation of premier developers, award-winning designers, and renowned Dallas architect Phillip Shepperd—all visionaries in creating dynamic live/work/play concepts in Uptown and downtown Dallas. “Without a doubt, one of the most compelling reasons to purchase a condo in One Uptown is location,” Gonzalez says. “Everyone knows the site. It’s somewhat historic in Dallas. While we constantly catch ourselves thinking about what the future is going to hold for Dallas real estate, the important thing to remember is the incredible opportunity that is available today to own a piece of prime Dallas real estate at a reasonable price. You can look at any major market in the country and recognize the advantage of owning luxury real estate with skyline views this close to the Central Business District. We have all heard the adage, ‘location, location, location.’ One Uptown is all about location. It’s not every day you get an opportunity to own a piece of real estate on such a prominent site in a major market like Dallas.”
One Uptown’s price points have been attractive to a range of buyers, a welcome perk in this recent tough market. A smaller one bedroom starts at $269,000 and condos increase in size and price to a $2.5 million penthouse. “The price cannot be matched, with land and construction costs at 25-30 percent higher now in this area,” Gonzalez says. “The location, price point, and low-interest rates have created a perfect storm. It’s a great time to buy, especially for first-time buyers looking to get established and put their money to work in a real estate investment.”
“One Uptown is all about location. It’s not every day you get an opportunity to own a piece of real estate on such a prominent site in a major market like Dallas.”
Besides the hot location, the crown jewel of One Uptown is its amenities and luxury appointments. Artfully inspired, modern architecture and elegantly distinguished by its curved façade, One Uptown stands out in Uptown’s burgeoning residential scene. Buyers will enjoy being surrounded by modern architectural excellence designed by Shepard, who also designed The Crescent. Quartz kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities, Merillat soft-close cabinetry, GE stainless steel luxury appliances, full-size GE washers and dryers, engineered hardwood floors, walk-in showers, soaring ceilings, LED lighting, walk-in closets with shelving systems, and private balconies are standard in most homes. Homeowners also love the floor-to-ceiling glass windows that reflect the ever-changing palette created by the dramatic Texas sky—a one-of-a-kind piece of art for their homes to admire every day.
Owning at One Uptown doesn’t come with the hassles that are often connected to home ownership. Imagine an extended vacation at an upscale boutique resort. Among the amenities homeowners enjoy:
- Two fine dining restaurants located on-site, Clé Supper Club and Fogo de Chao
- Rooftop pool, SkyLounge with billiard table, HD TVs, and catering kitchen for exclusive resident use and entertaining. Outdoor grilling stations, cabanas, and firepit with panoramic views.
- Second-floor amenity deck with glass-bottomed pool, cabanas, and gazabo
- Coffee bar and Internet café
- Fitness center with Peloton bikes, Technogym equipment, towel service, water bar, and cool-down lounge.
- Private pet park with mister fans, speakers, and pet grooming/bathing station
- Two fully furnished overnight guest suites.
- Professional on-site management with 24-hour concierge/door presence and overnight courtesy officer
- Electric car stations and assigned, well-lit underground parking
- Hospitality grade keyless entry systems
“If we were to build this building today, it would cost at least 30 percent more,” Gonzalez says. “This is why it is such a rare opportunity. The prices (of homes) will continue to climb in Dallas, especially in Uptown, as we become more a more populous metropolitan area. A beautiful building, a desirable location on McKinney Avenue with downtown and the Arts District nearby, and great price point make this a truly unique property. The amenities are a huge part of development, but the walkability rating of 96—one of highest in the city—means you are in the center of it all. There is so much history here, along with the opportunity to own a premier address as Dallas moves forward. Sites like this in Dallas are few and far between.”
