Ritz-Carlton long overdue

About a decade ago, they were going to slap up some massive complex. That never panned. Now in 2003, months ago there were unofficial rumors on another forum that they have another spot picked out again and are going in.

After reading this October article, it was easy to be skeptical - considering RC said themselves they were looking outside North America for future endeavors over the next several years:

When residents at the Victory project condominiums get the late-night munchies, anything from a snack to a full meal will be a phone call away.

That's because the 80 condos are being planned on top of the W Dallas Victory Hotel and Residences to be built northwest of downtown.

And the project isn't unique.

A few blocks away, on Pearl Street, a combination Ritz-Carlton hotel and condominium building will soon begin advertising residential units.

Developers are selling the idea of combining hotels and condominiums all over the country and it has as much to do with economics as providing extra service.

"A lot of developers are doing this today, and it makes sense," said Hillwood Capital president Jonas Woods. He said the company hopes to break ground in the next month or so on the W Hotel and Residences.

The tower with 258 hotel rooms and 80 luxury condos will be next to American Airlines Center.
