A Houston developer will build a nearly $170 million apartment tower on the site of an Oak Lawn condominium community.
Hanover Co. begins demolition of Turtle Creek Gardens condos at 2525 Turtle Creek Boulevard near Fairmount Street.
Built in the early 1960s, the low-rise condo community has over 100 units.
Hanover plans to build a 509,023-square-foot residential tower and a parking garage on the 4.5-acre site, according to planning documents filed with the state.
Construction of the tower is expected to begin in January with an opening in 2025.
Chicago-based architect Solomon Cordwell Buenz designs the project.
Hanover has a track record of successful residential skyscrapers in Dallas. The developer’s projects here include the 1900 McKinney apartment tower in Uptown and the Circus Tower in Victory Park.
And Hanover is building a 23-story multi-family skyscraper with 213 rental units in North Dallas.
The property on the north side of the Northwest Highway was the site of a deadly condominium fire in 2017.
The Turtle Creek site that Hannover is building on is on a street about to see big change.
A vacant 5-acre property next to Turtle Creek Gardens has just been sold to Colorado-based UDR Inc, one of the nation’s leading apartment builders. UDR is also planning residential tower development on the site at 2727 Turtle Creek Blvd.
On the west side of Turtle Creek Gardens, California-based Nexus Development Corp. wants to build a 25-storey residential tower at the corner of Turtle Creek Boulevard and Fairmount Street.
And a vacant block of Turtle Creek at Cedar Springs Road is slated for a Four Seasons hotel and condominiums. Boston developer Carpenter & Co. and the Perot family of Dallas are planning this project.
