And if I were going to live in the heart of the city, touring a condo at The Metropolitan would definitely be on my to-do list. Its location at 1200 Main Street puts it within walking distance (or, at the very least, cycling distance) of the Perot Museum, the American Airlines Center, and the Arts District, not to mention all of the restaurants and retailers that keep popping up in the central business district.
As it so happens, the Hickman+Weber Group is marketing a stunning three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo on the 23rd floor of the Metropolitan. The 2,100-square-foot unit is as airy as can be, with walls of glass that provide amazing views of downtown. High-end finishes include hardwood floors, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances.
The building has 24-hour concierge service, garage parking, excellent storage, a pool, a gym, a terrace for entertaining, and a conference room. But what really caught my eye was the media room, complete with a large screen and 14 comfy chairs. Homeowners can reserve the theater, or any of the other amenities, after writing a $500 check as a security deposit. As long as everything is clean and intact when you’re through, the check never get cashed.
