Jon Anderson Takes The Turtle Creek Penthouse Plunge: The Deal

By Jon Anderson / July 25, 2019 / 10 Comments

Back in March, I wrote a column about a mystery buyer wanting a partner-in-renovation to separate a double penthouse listing at The Claridge on Turtle Creek.

BombSHELLS: Vendome Mega-Penthouse Features the World’s Longest Widow’s Walk

By Jon Anderson / September 11, 2015 / 2 Comments

Basking in the metaphorical Marlboro-hazed afterglow of the recent Exxxotica confab, I remembered there’s another penthouse stripped down to its skivvies and waiting to be dressed up. This time it’s the Vendome’s 12,370-square-foot penthouse 20 D/E/F being marketed by Dallas high-rise pioneer herself Judy Pittman. No, I didn’t slip a decimal point, it is twelve-thousand, […]
