Nancy Martínez salutes '3525' on its golden anniversary
8 July 2007, The Dallas Morning News
Built in 1957 by architect Howard R. Meyer, at a cost of $5.8 million, 3525 Turtle Creek became the Grand Dame and most prestigious address along this scenic corridor of the city. With residents such as actress Greer Garson and entertainers Jimmy Dean and Fabian, the property made headlines as royalty, high society and Hollywood stars frequented the modernist building that became known simply as ”3525.”
“ '3525' has a glamorous history and bright future as the current residents continue to be dedicated to preserving a high quality lifestyle in one of the most vibrant and sophisticated areas of Dallas,” says Ms. Martínez, who is currently offering three properties there. ”The building's patina continues to grow richer and richer,” she added.
Nancy Martínez of Virginia Cook Realtors represents three properties at 3525 Turtle Creek. They are priced from $349,000 to $1.05 million. All of the homes offer sunset and greenbelt views.
Showcasing Howard Meyer's renowned flair for international design melded with uniquely regional features and thoughtfulness, ”3525” capitalizes upon its natural surroundings to frame stunning views of Katy Trail, the Turtle Creek greenbelt and glorious Texas sunsets from its 22 floors. The most remarkable aspect of the building is its earth-toned sunscreen, or ”brise soileil,” derived from the planning principles of Le Corbusier.
“This property has long been recognized for its architectural significance in Dallas,” says Katherine Seale, interim executive director of Preservation Dallas. ”As '3525' celebrates its 50th Anniversary, it is also now being considered for its historic significance, proof that its design and livability have stood the test of time.”
Having carefully facilitated close to $4 million in transactions at ”3525,” Ms. Martínez joins the residents and civic leaders in celebrating this distinction. The marketing team at Virginia Cook, Realtors is assisting Ms. Martínez in designing a special brochure celebrating ”3525”'s 50th Anniversary and unique history. For details on the building and its intriguing past, go to www.3525TurtleCreek.org. 
Homes currently available in “3525” include residence 12D, with a climate controlled glassed-in atrium, formal entry, and two bedrooms and baths, for $349,000. Residence 16D has rich hardwood floors throughout and a gourmet eat-in kitchen, offered at $375,000. With 3,861-square-foot, unit 8DE is a true ”home in the sky,” with two master suites, expansive travertine floors, and state-of-the art sound and lighting. Designed by Rick Rozas and Alice Cottrell with sleek ”transitional styling,” it offers exceptional entertaining space and is available for $1,050,000 unfurnished or $1,300,000 furnished. 
“This is a timely opportunity to invest in one of the most famous addresses in Dallas at a variety of price points,” says Ms. Martínez. “The lifestyle, the surroundings and the neighbors are exceptional.”
