3001 Turtle Creek (former GE site) is now proposed at 17 floors.

Perot’s high-rise project will be the first office tower along Dallas’ Turtle Creek since the 1980s

Ross Perot Jr.’s Hillwood Urban real estate firm is looking for tenants for a high-rise office to be built on the last vacant site along Dallas’ posh Turtle Creek corridor.
Hillwood hired award-winning architect Pickard Chilton of New Haven, Conn., to design the high-rise project at 3001 Turtle Creek Blvd.
Plans for the 350,000-square-foot building include a landscaped park area facing the boulevard and a restaurant with outdoor dining.
“We are doing work across the country, but this Turtle Creek property in Dallas is probably one of the richest urban sites I’ve ever been able to work on,” said founding partner Jon Pickard. “The building will rise up the hill, and you will look over Turtle Creek and have vistas of downtown Dallas.”

The glass, metal and concrete building will be constructed in two wings, with one section overhanging the outdoor dining area.

“Instead of building one big monolithic block, we wanted something more dynamic, and we wanted to maximize the view,” Pickard said. “There is going to be an amazing restaurant with a terrace.

“We’ve created a spectacular park with the building set way back,” he said. “It’s going to be an experience you don’t typically get in an urban context.”

Pickard Chilton is working with Klyde Warren Park landscape designer James Burnett on the park and garden areas of the Turtle Creek project.

“We preserved the natural topography and preserved the trees,” Pickard said.
“They could have built a bigger building, but they want to make sure it contributes to the character of Dallas,” Pickard said.
