1999 McKinney Lofts

1999 McKinney is an 11-story loft-style building in Uptown Dallas that was built in 2000. Whereas once this was a primarily commercial district, the neighborhood has really taken off with luxury residential buildings as well as offices. This has resulted in 1999 McKinney being in the heart of one of Dallas' most walkable neighborhoods. American Airlines Center, Klyde Warren Park, the Ritz-Carlton and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science are all within a few blocks of this tower. In addition to the great location, 1999 features terrific outdoor space with huge terraces in each home as well as a saltwater pool, spa and fire pit on the fourth floor. All homes are two-story loft style and feature huge windows with views of Downtown Dallas, hardwood or concrete flooring and luxury kitchens with granite, stainless and maple cabinets. Built in 2000, 1999 McKinney is an 11-story high-rise modern loft building in Uptown Dallas.  Every home at 1999 McKinney is a two-story loft, with huge windows in the living and dining area.  Most of the homes are are two bedroom/two bath but there are a few three bedrooms.  Typically the floor plan is one bedroom down and a master suite upstairs. Finish out differs from home to home, for instance some have concrete floors and some have hardwoods.  All homes feature great lofts elements though, like concrete pillars, exposed duct work and high ceilings.  If you’re looking for a loft-style home but want the conveniences of a newer building then be sure to take a closer look at 1999 McKinney.

21 Turtle Creek

21 Turtle Creek Condominiums, known simply as “21,” is one of Dallas’ first residential high-rises. The area today occupied by 21 and the Turtle Creek Village shopping center was once the site of Holy Trinity College. The imposing brick building, built in the late 1880s, dominated the landscape and was visible from several blocks away. Holy Trinity, which became the University of Dallas in the early years of the 20th century, occupied the spot until the 1940s when Jesuit High School took over the old college building. In 1963, Jesuit moved to its new location in North Dallas, and the area bounded by Oak Lawn Avenue, Blackburn, Turtle Creek Boulevard and Irving Avenue became home to office and residential towers and a shopping center. Built in 1963 on the old school grounds, 21 Turtle Creek was the premier residential address in Dallas. Several years ago, a story about Jack Ruby appeared in the Dallas Morning News. According to the late Tony Zoppi, entertainment columnist for the Dallas Morning News in the early 1960s, just before the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby planned to move to an apartment at 21. The rent, at $195, was substantially more than what he’d been paying for his apartment in Oak Cliff. The newspaperman was suitably impressed and told Ruby so. Ruby replied, “Tony, I’ve skimped all my life. Now I want to live a little.” Ruby never moved into his new apartment, however. He was in jail for the assassination of Oswald on the day he had been supposed to move. (Dallas Morning News, Sunday, Feb. 22, 2001.) The building was quite different in those days. The ground floor and terrace levels, where today there are luxury residences, were occupied by businesses including a nightclub, a beauty salon and a shoe repair shop. There was even a President’s Health Club, one of the first in Dallas. In recent years, 21 has undergone a series of significant improvements. A major renovation project was launched in 2009, and our building has had an extensive makeover, inside as well as out. These days, 21 Turtle Creek is proudly embracing its mid-century origins while maintaining the upscale and elegant atmosphere to be expected of a prestigious Turtle Creek address. The residents here are proud of our building and our community as 21 begins its second half-century.
