I have always loved this building, once touted as the tallest, largest, and most luxurious highrise west of the Mississippi River when it was built in 1957. Designed by the famed modernist Howard R. Meyer, 3525 Turtle Creek is a building with serious history.
The most obvious design characteristic of this trademark midcentury modern highrise is the cubic brise soleil, which shades the interior of the building from heat and harsh sunlight. Imagine how innovated that was 56 years ago! The building, which is called the “Grand Dame” of Turtle Creek, is on the National Register of Historic Places and has entertained famous residents and guests such as Greer Garson, Jimmy Dean, Earle Cabell, Margaret Thatcher, and Minnie Marcus.
If you want to add your name to this list, here’s your chance. LocalDwelling.com is offering Unit 10C — a fully-furnished one-bedroom, one-bath unit with almost 1,200 square feet — for $2,500 a month, all bills paid. It’s a steal for such a cool unit, and I love the retro kitchen with the double ovens that look to be original. Good design lasts a lifetime, right?
This is a fantastic unit that is perfect for a corporate relocation or someone who is just moving to the area. The views are outstanding and the location is fantastic, as you’re right on the Katy Trail and next to Turtle Creek Park.
