Plans for a 14-story luxury condominium tower at Lakeside DFW were released today.
“We have been listening carefully to the market for a condo tower at Lakeside,” said Richard Myers, managing parter of Realty Capital Management, master developer of Lakeside DFW. “We hope these plans demonstrate how seriously we value that input.
“Naturally, views ranked high on everyone’s wish list,” Myers said. “So each unit will feature a large balcony with outstanding views of Lake Grapevine.”
The views will include sunsets over Lake Grapevine all twelve months of the year.
“That’s significantly different than many beachfront hotels and condominiums,” Myers added, “where only half the units face the most desired views.”
On the second floor, residents will have access to an amenity deck featuring a swimming pool, hot tub, and cabanas.
“We conducted solar studies to position the building, pool, hot tub, and cabanas optimally,” Myers said.
Wine lockers will be available for residents and a full-service spa and a salon will be located in an adjacent and connecting building.
“The site is located steps from the Lakeside boardwalk/trail,” Myers added, “and just west of the central roundabout.”
In addition to the views and amenities, designers placed a premium on security and maximizing the value of every square foot.
Semi-private elevators equipped with front and rear doors will open directly into the specified unit. For example, the residents of 10A will enter the A & B elevator and swipe their key, directing the elevator to 10th floor where the A door will open.
“The system adds an element of security and eliminates hallways, maximizing the square footage for the residents’ use,” Myers explained.
Reserved parking in the garage will be provided for each resident.
Current plans call for as many as four units per floor (each floor measures approximately 11,000 sq. ft.).
“We expect to be able to offer plans for a one-bedroom unit starting around $500,000,” said Myers.
In March and the early part of April, focus group testing will be conducted to fine-tune the architecture, interiors, and features.
“By May,” Myers said, “we hope to begin marketing the residences for sale.”
