With a vibrant downtown and economic opportunities, new people are moving to Dallas and investing in the strong real estate market. Many of these individuals don’t have a need for a single family home and instead opt for the downtown high-rise lifestyle which has been contributing to the increase in condo sales we have seen for the last few years. Buyers have more choices for luxury condos such as the Museum Tower Condos in the downtown arts district which provides private elevators, floor to ceiling glass, spectacular views, gourmet kitchens, Miele appliances, marble baths, private terrace, pool, spa, fitness center, guest suites and other amenities. In fact, most condos being built across the United States are focused on creating deluxe common areas for the buyers to enjoy.
