What’s It Like to Live in a Downtown Dallas High Rise?

02/20/2014

For the past few years, I have watched Downtown come to life. It’s exciting, and we at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty have been sharing that excitement by introducing our clients to great high-rise living in Downtown.

But showing a home and living it are two different things. I got to thinking, what’s it like to live in one of Downtown Dallas’s new luxury high rises? What’s it like for a concierge to help arrange to have groceries delivered each week? Or to have the elevator drop you off right in your home?

So for the next few days my wife, Nancy, and I are going to Live High Rise. We are being hosted by Museum Tower, right in the heart of the Dallas Arts District. We’ll get a new perspective of the Dallas skyline and the great green expanse of Klyde Warren Park, a fantastic place to spend time with family.

We have a great weekend planned, starting with cocktails on the terrace with great views of the city. Then, the Museum Tower staff is helping us plan a catered dinner in our home there. Our grandchildren will visit the next afternoon, along with our son Ben and his wife, and we’ll take in Klyde Warren Park, visit the Perot Museum and have a cookout on the terrace.

We’ve got the entertainment covered.

But, as a businessman, I’ve also wondered how high-rise living could support my work. So I have arranged to meet with some international investors in the building’s boardroom – one of the many unique amenities of high rise living. It will be an interesting way to introduce potential clients to our city.

You can share the experience with us by watching videos, reading posts, and seeing great photos from my website http://robbiebriggs.com/livehighrise. If you have questions or comments, text them to 82257. I’ll be posting my replies on #livehighrise, so make sure you keep checking for updates. (Just search #livehighrise to see them.)

I’m so excited to experience what it’s like to live High Rise in Downtown. Nancy and I can’t wait to wake up to the city.
