High-Style Living

Visit new model homes at Uptown’s hottest high-rise, Bleu Ciel.
By D Partner Studio |

You no longer have to only imagine what it would be like to live in an Uptown Dallas skyrise—you can experience it for yourself when you visit one of Bleu Ciel’s new model homes designed by highly sought-after designers, George Bass Stage and Design, Janet Baker, Cheryl Parsa, and Nikki Klugh Design Group.

Bleu Ciel has redefined the Dallas skyline–a sparkling beacon that welcomes you to the city. The Bleu Ciel sky-rise is now an architectural icon in Dallas and one of the most awe-inspiring residential towers in the country. The modern, elegant 33-story tower dazzles with soaring vistas; airy, open-style interiors with designer finishes; floor-to-ceiling windows; and sweeping terraces. In fact, the terraces are the largest in Dallas and are usually what seal the deal for buyers once they visit, says Allison Hayden, Director of Sales for Bleu Ciel.

Bleu Ciel was designed by world-renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte and is a venture of esteemed developer Harwood International. If you are looking for a concierge lifestyle, every available amenity, and breathtaking city views—this is it. “The new model homes allow you to see how you can bring an empty space to life,” Hayden says. “You’ll be able to visualize yourself at Bleu Ciel. Some buyers love our model homes so much, they buy the unit ‘as is.’”

Each home in Bleu Ciel features top-of-the-line details with designer finishes, Miele appliances, Procelanosa cabinetry, and stone counters. Depending on which home you choose, you can watch the sunset over the Dallas skyline, take in the views of west Dallas, or gaze as far as you can see toward the north. Simply select the floor plan that best suits your lifestyle and needs. Choose from premier penthouses, sky penthouses, the Vista Collection (floors 28 through 30), sky homes (floors seven through 27), or garden homes on floor six.

Bleu Ciel was designed for residents to feel as if the entire building is an extension of their homes. A plush library and resident lounge offer a change of scenery when working from home, and an expansive wine tasting and storage room—complete with a long, hand-carved Italian wooden table—is just the spot for a lavish, private dinner party. The wine cellar has the capacity to hold 10,000 bottles of wine. Residents enjoy holiday parties, art gallery events, and wine tastings, among other perks. “Your entire social calendar can be filled without ever leaving the building,” Hayden says.

But when homeowners here decide to venture out, they are—unarguably—in one of the best spots in Dallas, as Bleu Ciel is centrally located in the Harwood District between Uptown, downtown Dallas, the Arts District, the Design District, and Victory Park. Whether you’re going on a grocery run to Whole Foods or an actual run on the Katy Trail, or you are headed out for a day of shopping or off to brunch—everything is right in Bleu Ciel’s urban backyard. “The location is perfect,” Hayden says. “Everything is so close and yet it is a quiet area that is within a five-minute walk of shopping, dining, and entertainment.”

Concierge and valet services are available 24/7, and residents enjoy their own private garage space within the building’s master garage that features electric car-charging stations and an owner car wash. Whatever you need—catering coordination for a dinner party, or pet care/dog walking —Bleu Ciel’s concierge team has you covered. One of Bleu Ciel’s biggest draws is its pool deck which features some of the most stunning sunset skyline views in Dallas. Each visit to Bleu Ciel’s pool deck feels like a mini-vacation with its towering palm trees, two junior Olympic pools, a beach-entry lounge pool, shaded lounge chairs, a hot tub, and grilling stations. A fitness center and full-service spa round out the long list of Bleu Ciel’s coveted amenities.

Harwood District has earned a Walk Score of 92 and has two direct connections to the 3.5-mile Katy Trail for its tenants, residents, and visitors. New additions are Harwood No. 10, a 22-story office tower designed by Dallas-based HDF, and the new Rolex Building designed by Tokyo-based Kengo Kuma & Associates and HDF. Harwood No. 14 broke ground in February. Designed in partnership with Kengo Kuma & Associates, Corgan, and HDF, the 27-story tower brings 360,000 square feet of office space, approximately 17,000 square feet of restaurant space for Harwood Hospitality Group and features a 17,000-square-foot rooftop and sky garden. In addition, HI’s hospitality division is under development on its 22-story boutique hotel within the District. The company has received numerous design and community awards, including recognition by ENR for the Best Office Project in the World for its Rolex Building.
