Turtle Creek DFW

The Turtle Creek development from Toronto-based Great Gulf Homes has been in the works for about two years now, so chances are, you’ve probably heard of it. Initially, the developer was planning to build a 22-story residential tower at 2505 Turtle Creek Blvd, but now, reports are also coming out about the homebuilder having also acquired 2401 Turtle Creek Blvd, which could eventually lead to a new luxury rental tower also being developed with 50 individual units.
