"New Ultra-Luxury High-Rise Condominium Bleu Ciel to Transform Dallas' Uptown Skyline"

by Linda

Quote:
Designed By World Renowned Architect, the 33-Story Tower to Emerge as Beacon of Dallas' Acclaimed HARWOOD District
Quote:
“Dallas is ready for another iconic architectural masterpiece to follow buildings by major international architects from the UK, Italy, and Holland,” said Gabriel Barbier-Mueller, Founder and CEO of Harwood International. “Bleu Ciel is located at the highest vantage point overlooking Uptown and Downtown Dallas and is Dallas’ first high-rise designed by a French architect.”
Bleu Ciel is designed in collaboration with Jean-Michel Wilmotte and HDF, LLC. Wilmotte & Associés SA has a major presence in public buildings, retail, office, corporate headquarters, high-end residential buildings, and luxury hotels. Jean-Michel Wilmotte is recognized for his eclectic approach to architectural design and application of high quality materials and detailing. Notable projects include the Ferrari Sporting Management Center, Maranello-Fiorano; La Réserve, Ramatuelle; LVMH’s headquarters, Paris; Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Paris; and Musée d’Orsay, Paris. In 2014 Wilmotte & Associes SA ranked 74 in the World Architecture 100, Building Design magazine’s compendium of the world’s biggest practices, thus cementing its reputation as one of the most important global architecture practices.

Bleu Ciel is located in HARWOOD, the ‘Walk to Life’ neighborhood with a Walk Score of 92 that offers a wealth of progressive culture, independent spirit and calming nature – all within 18 city blocks. Bleu Ciel residents will be within walking distance to the city’s most notable attractions including a mix of boutiques, restaurants and entertainment destinations such as the Katy Trail, American Airlines Center, The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Klyde Warren Park, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, the Design District and the Arts District.

Construction begins on Bleu Ciel condo tower in Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood

Quote:
Developer Harwood International is starting construction this afternoon on the first Uptown condo tower to be built since the recession.

The 33-story Bleu Ciel residential high-rise will be built on North Harwood Street near the entrance to the Dallas North Tollway.

The luxury residential high-rise was designed by HDF LLC and architect Wilmotte & Associes S.A. of Paris.

The project will include groundfloor retail space and has access to the Katy Trail.

The building is scheduled to open in late 2016 or early 2017.

Harwood International also built the nearby 31-story Azure condo tower starting in 2005.

Bleu Ciel will have more than 150 residences starting in price near $750,000 and range in size from 1,300 to more than 7,000 square feet.

If they designed that partial wrap into the building exterior, it would really stand out.

I like the original rendering better, but the newest one still looks good. The only thing I don't like is that they are calling it Bleu Ciel instead of Ciel Bleu, but whatever.

Why? Is it because you don't like the name or you think it is a mistranslation?

The name of the building is Sky Blue, as in the color aka azure, not Blue Sky, as in the sky on a cloudless day. I've heard others complain this is a mistranslation, but it isn't.

This is not a new render where there is a change in the look of the tower from the previous renderings. This is simply a render depicting the south side of the tower showing the elevated portion with the pool area.

Apparently a few weeks ago there was a meeting of the minds with neighbors to discuss how to make the area more walkable and opening the Katy Trail in between McKinnon and Harry Hines. Any excuse to connect the Oak Lawn area to the AAC/Uptown area is a good one in my book.

After a year of digging through limestone to construct the underground parking garage, Bleu Ciel is soon to go vertical.

Harwood's ultra-luxe skyscraper Bleu Ciel ready to rise into the sky
Candace Carlisle
March 30, 2016

Quote:
It's taken about 16 months for the Dallas-based development firm Harwood International to get ready to head sky high with its 33-story, ultra-luxury residential skyscraper, but that's just what the firm plans to do in the next week or so.
Quote:
So far, Harwood has put seven homes under contract in the last seven days, Jessica Young, a spokeswoman for Harwood International, told the Dallas Business Journal.
"Our housing team — Harwood Living — is ahead of the game," said Young, who said Bleu Ciel will have approximately 158 homes (depending on finish out) within the skyscraper.
Quote:
The architect of the project is Jean-Michel Wilmotte of Wilmotte & Associes S.A. in Paris.

Harwood International plans to start vertical construction on Thursday, April 7.
