Tower on way up at Victory

Work is under way on the next tower at Victory, and developers hope to have the residential high-rise ready by the spring of 2007.

Called Cirque, the 28-story tower is being developed by Houston-based Hanover Co. Hanover also built the Ashford apartment tower across the street from the Crescent.

Hanover calls the new building a “sky sculpture,” with a curving glass and masonry exterior. The building was designed by architects Gromatzky Dupree & Associates.

The building is located just east of American Airlines Center at 2500 N. Houston St.

Cirque will have 252 apartments averaging 1,200 square feet. Rents in the building will average about $2,500 a month.

“Select units will feature private terraces and multiple balconies,” said Hanover spokesman Stuart Rosenberg. “Additional highlights will include three two-story penthouse units; clubhouse with business center, conference room, surround-sound theatre, Internet cafe coffee bar and demonstration kitchen.”

On the seventh floor, the building will have an “aqua lounge,” and a fitness center, tennis court and resort-style pool.

There will be 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.

Cirque is the fifth residential building under construction at Victory.

The first homes – condos in the W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residences – will open in May.
