He is selling both of the units he owns in the ultramodern Azure, Dallas' first LEED-certified residential high-rise building designed by "starchitect" James Cheng and built in 2007. He is asking $2.25 million for his 3-bedroom, 3,559-square-foot home in the sky. Owens's larger unit is a custom residence on the 20th floor, and comes with a 6-car garage space -- what the Azure calls the G-2, playing off of the G-5 private jet favored by many high-net-worth individuals -- plus two storage spaces. The Azure has the most generous parking of any of the Dallas high-rises. This home has three outdoor terraces with gas fireplaces, tall ceilings and downtown Dallas skyline views. The kitchen features a built-in SubZero fridge, Miele gas cooktop, and double ovens. The master suite features his-her separate bath with a "tea-for-two" bathtub, and closets, a sitting area and a private outdoor terrace with a gas fireplace.
The second unit is a 1-bedroom, 1½-bath, 881-square-foot unit with a one-car garage, a generous terrace, the nine to ten foot ceilings, vast windows also overlooking Dallas, but from the third floor. This one is only $350,000.
It would be perfect to buy both and let your bodyguard/life coach/personal assistant live in the smaller one.
The wide receiver, six-time Pro Bowl selection and former holder of the league single-game reception record, has had a controversial career and "episodes" with almost every team he has played for.
On the field, his brilliant scoring and antics drew even more attention to his off-the-field firestorms
Owens was released from his contract by the Cowboys in 2009.
It might be hard for Owens to leave the Azure and Deion Sanders, who owns a penthouse in the same glitzy building. Owens was one of the building's first celebrity buyers. Sanders sweetly mediated a little spat between Atlanta Falcons cornerback DeAngelo Hall and Owens in 2006. Hall claimed that Owens spit in his face after a play early in the game. Game officials and reporters were unaware of the incident and Owens was not asked about it until his post-game interview when he fessed up, confirmed it, and apologized.
Owens was fined $35,000 for the incident. Sanders's penthouse was also for sale at the Azure, listed for $7.5 million, but according to MLS records the listing is no longer active. Sanders apparently recently suffered water damage at his $21 million ranch in Prosper, Tex.
