Turner Brothers Development

Turner Brothers is committed to enriching the community and bettering the local economy through real estate rehabilitation and development.

Turner Brothers Development has made a name for itself in the urban redevelopment of Downtown Waco, Texas having developed over 200,000 square feet of commercial and residential space in downtown Waco, including Tinsley Square, Altura Luxury Lofts, and The Lofts at Franklin Square. The development firm also most recently created major retail and restaurant spaces downtown including UParks Village, West Bay, and Union Hall.

The team also played pivotal roles in the revitalization of downtown Waco; collectively, developing more than 600,000-sq. ft. representing approximately $100 million in total investment in more than 22 new construction and adaptive re-use projects in a diverse mix of uses. Projects have ranged from main-street commercial redevelopment, urban lofts, multi-family housing (rental and condos), mixed-use, office, and a historic theatre rehabilitation into a multi-purpose performance venue and first-run movie theatre. Early urban development projects consisted of apartments, condos, and lofts that added approximately 350 new rooftops in downtown Waco to encourage people to live downtown. As the residential population increased, development has shifted to a stronger focus on retail, restaurant, and office in Waco, Texas

The Waco Hippodrome is a historic monument that Turner Brothers renovated. Since 1914, the Hippodrome has been known to host a wide variety of high-quality Broadway-style acts and entertainment such as silent films, vaudeville shows, and traveling performers – even live performing seals. Today, the spirit of live entertainment endures at the Hippodrome.

A long-awaited transformation is blooming in Temple. The historic Hawn Hotel and Arcadia Theater, dormant since 1978, are being revitalized alongside new shops and residences. This Hawn Plaza project, a partnership between the city and Turner Brothers Development, promises a vibrant mix of apartments, a food hall, retail spaces, and a performance hall in the reborn Arcadia. Beyond Hawn Plaza, the entire downtown core is getting a refresh with improved streetscapes, landscaping, and a new parking garage. It’s a new era for Temple, and we are excited to be at the center of it.

Where the iconic Floyd Casey Baylor Stadium once stood as a cultural hub in Waco, a vibrant new community is taking root. The project will offer a mix of 259 single-family homes, three multifamily residences, and three commercial sites. But this development goes beyond just housing and shops. The vision? To create a walkable haven for generations to come. Winding trails will connect residents to a brand new Waco city park and a revitalized multi-use sports complex just across Clay Avenue. Construction is underway as of 2024.

Union Hall is bringing the food hall dining experience to downtown Waco, serving a range of different tastes and offering the added nourishment of community. Taking its cue from European markets, Union Hall brings local chefs and entrepreneurs under one roof, offering delicious and diverse dining options from multiple stalls while friends, families and neighbors dine at common tables. Union Hall puts a local and modern spin on things by hosting special community events throughout the year and embracing the history and culture of the Franklin Avenue address.
