The Turchin Companies started out in construction in South Florida in 1927 and over the following decades built a well-deserved reputation as one of the premiere development companies in the state. The Turchin Companies is credited with building most of the high rises in Miami Beach. “It is no exaggeration to say that Turchin (Robert) built much of post-war Miami Beach…numbering upward of 200 buildings” (The Miami Herald). Upon graduating from Florida International University with a degree in construction management, John Turchin joined the family business following in his grandfather and father’s footsteps. After managing many of the company’s high rise projects of the late 70’s and 80’s, John eventually took over the company upon his father Robert’s retirement. In the mid and late 90’s, John led The Turchin Companies to play an integral role in restoring and re-building Miami Beach. In creating some of the most renowned estate homes and commercial buildings in South Florida, John Turchin combined his real estate talents, his flair for artistic construction, and his complete turnkey design elements and ideas, becoming known as an artist-in-action with an out-of-the-box business sense. Turchin grew a reputation as not just a creator of incredible properties, but more importantly as a creator of extraordinary lifestyles. John is proud to sit on the City of Miami Beach Design Review Board and has held an unlimited General Contractor’s License in South Florida since 1979.
In the early 2000’s, the company turned its attention to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and began to assemble a 1,350 acre tract of land that would soon become The Lodges at Eagles Nest. Located in Banner Elk, North Carolina, a well-kept secret vacation spot of the Turchin family since 1970, the original concept for The Lodges at Eagles Nest was to be a world-renowned inspired Blue Ridge Mountain retreat, with elevations of up to 5,200 feet above sea level, where residents would be reminded of their childhood summer camp experiences, only with an unmatched sense of luxury and distinction. The Lodges at Eagles Nest was created to be the perfect mountain retreat for the whole family and a showcase of John Turchin’s passion for creating art through architecture.
