Million-Dollar Views and Va-Va-Voom: 7 Luxury Penthouses Across North Texas

The news has been filled with stories of people leaving densely populated metropolitan markets in favor of quieter suburbs and sleepy towns with a much slower pace. But the yang to that yin can be found in the number of homebuyers eager to take advantage of this renewed opportunity to live their biggest big-city dreams. In fact, market research about real estate trends in major markets shows that city living now has major appeal.

When the world does eventually get control of the COVID-19 virus, people will be keen to live once again in the major cities, to take advantage of the convenience and excitement associated with living there, says Michael Pallier, owner and managing director of Sydney Sothebys International Realty in a global report in the Luxury Outlook 2021 publication from Sothebys International Realty.

So in the spirit of going big or going home, why not go home to the pinnacle of urban living: a luxury penthouse apartment with enviable views. From majestic views to first-class amenities, here are seven available top-floor showstoppers with sky-high extravagance at every turn.
