The open floor plan was designed to take in the 360-degree panoramic views. Designer Adrienne Akin Faulkner opted for clean spaces, neutral tones and a modern feel. With a little over 10,000 square feet, the Omni Penthouse atop the Omni Hotel in downtown Fort Worth is more than just an apartment, it is a sprawling luxury estate in the sky.
Access to the thirty-third floor is via an elevator with private entry. The space has five living areas, including a formal salon along with several lounges, and two dining areas. Sleek 12-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows mix with rich ebony-toned wood flooring and polished marble accents in the kitchen and baths.
There is nothing boxy about this penthouse. The well-thought-out floor-plan divisions are enhanced by interesting curves and corners. The finishes and fixtures lend to the overall appeal.
The master bathroom has a spa-like quality with soaking tub, glass enclosed shower and dressing room − all open to the view. A stylish U-shaped kitchen has cooking appliances on one side and refrigerator with prep sink on the other. The space is separated by a center island that is also convenient for serving.
Eva Gabor’s turn on Green Acres left one indelible quote: “I just adore a penthouse view!” And while the living space is luxurious, the Omni Penthouse is all about the view. Residents and visitors alike will be awe-struck by the five balconies that invite many entertaining possibilities, from casual to lavish. The dining balcony includes a fire pit.
“Across the world, we are seeing a trend toward people wanting to live like they are on holiday, all year round. As the global economy continues to build momentum, the ultra-high-net-worth individual’s interest in serviced homes above five-star hotels is also increasing,” says Robbie Briggs, president and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
Residents of the Omni Hotel have access to all hotel amenities, including maid service, room service, spa treatments, the fitness center and pool. This is an appealing option for jet-setters and multi-home owners, knowing that maintenance and security are not a worry when they are not in residence, and having service available on site when they are.
