Subsequent new tower proposed for Dallas’ Turtle Creek neighborhood
Posted On March 8, 2023
Oak Lawn residents are getting a first look at a new high-rise residential building planned for the Turtle Creek area.
The tower proposed by Dallas’ Validus Development Corp. would include 104 luxury residential units in 29 stories. Developers presented plans for the project – located at Hood and Brown streets near Fairmount – at this week’s Oak Lawn Committee meeting.
Units in the tower would average more than 2,200 square feet, with only four residences per floor. All of the parking would be located in an underground garage and a swimming pool would be built on a second-floor tenant amenity area.
Dallas architect GFF designed the project, which developers say will cost between $90 million and $100 million.
Developer Validus – headed by businessman Luis Gonzalez – is seeking zoning approvals for extra density needed to accommodate the high-rise. It would be constructed on a vacant property that previously had a large single-family home and other buildings.
The residential tower would share the block with another apartment high-rise – the 22-story, 270-unit Aster apartments, which opened in 2021. Two more residential towers are across Hood Street on the adjoining block.
A half dozen apartment and condominium towers and a luxury hotel also are planned in the Turtle Creek corridor between Uptown and Highland Park.
