Phillippe Starck Returns in a Big Way
French designer Phillippe Starck will build a big hi-rise condo in Uptown’s Victory project. The building, dubbed “The House”, will be a 26-story, 150-unit luxury place. While there’s no word yet on actual pricing, you can reserve your unit now for $5,000. Construction will start in the first quarter of ’06.
Why Dallas? He’s had success here before with his West End nightclub (remember the Starck Club?) which opened in 1984. And, of course, hi-rise condos seem to be all the rage now. So, we can’t fault the guy for contributing to the over-building of that sector, can we?
