High-rise surrounded by urban arts district

The developers of Museum Tower, the new 42-story landmark in the Dallas Arts District, have announced a limited release of 20 condominium homes. This release follows on the success of last December's premiere release, which sold out in just more than 30 days.

The newly announced release represents buyers' last chance for pre-construction home selection customization and pricing.

Located in the world's largest urban arts district, Museum Tower will surround its residents with masterpieces of the visual arts, performing arts and architecture. The site is between the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and the Nasher Sculpture Center. Two-dozen other arts organizations also will call the Arts District home.

Even the culinary arts are represented at Museum Tower, with several of the city's top restaurants within a short distance and chef Stephan Pyles as resident culinary ambassador

For Museum Tower residents, a typical day might begin with a ride down a private elevator for coffee in the library with neighbors, then a brisk walk in Woodall Rodgers Park or a more vigorous run on the nearby Katy Trail. For a slower-paced morning, stroll with your dog to the cafe in the park. Afterward, wander over to the Nasher for the latest exhibition.

With groundbreaking scheduled for 2008, Museum Tower is now accepting appointments for tours of the site and evirons. For a private appointment at the Sales Gallery at 2112 Flora St. at Olive, call 214-954-1234 or visit
