The high-heeled and high-toned guests at May’s opening of the high-end showrooms at 150 Turtle Creek Boulevard are duly impressed. Visitors search out their host, the scion of a wealthy developer and collector, a former high-school football star, whose name appears on the blue-and-white “For Lease” signs next to seemingly every gallery opening they’ve attended lately. But instead of a modern-day Gatsby, they find Jim Lake Jr. looking a bit square in his buzzcut and starched shirt, deflecting compliments and sending them in the direction of his architect, general contractor, and leasing staff.
