I was invited to walk the Skye condos the other night for a photo shoot. It was amazing and I wanted to show our community how breath taking the views are going to be! Nothing like it in Uptown. Remember – you can sign up on the left tab for updates. Prices and plans coming soon………..

The hotel’s SKYE Lobby is on the 10th floor with guest check in and guest services. Its décor is inspired from the architecture, with a small nod to Art Deco. With bold, linear symmetry, contrasting colors and elegant modernism, the feature walls are beveled mirror tiles, surrounded by Crema Marfil arches. Art will have a prominent place in the SKYE Lobby with numerous sculptures commissioned by local artists. The amenities are completely separate for residents and hotel guests which are also located on the 10th floor.
The Grand Lobby, located on the first floor, has a two story grand entrance and is welcoming with strong contrast in colors and creative use of light. The design details are purposefully timeless, yet contemporary, with stone flooring and wall panels with wood accent panels. Classic imported marble and granite is used. Elevator doors are etched stainless steel in a custom pattern, with warm walnut wood trimming. Five elevator banks will service the building
