57 new homes coming to Stevens Village Drive

Brand-new homes are coming to an 8-acre lot, near Stevens Park Golf Course, that’s been vacant for at least a decade.

David Weekley Homes is building 57 two-story homes in on Stevens Village Drive at West Davis, the site of the former Stevens Village Apartment Complex.

The Houston-based homebuilder has named the development Kessler Heights, and prices will start in the $400,000 range.

David Weekley Homes also is building 53 new homes on Stevens Forest Drive, behind St. Cecilia Catholic Church.

Coombs Creek runs through the property, and it’s also adjacent to the gated community of high-end modern homes, Kessler Woods.

    What do you mean – have you looked at the map? I read the paper and magazines.

    Please don’t build so many two-story houses in the Kessler Park area, which will erase the Rolling Hills standing above the City of Dallas. Interstate 30 (originally named I-20) cut in the streets running north and south, as Edgefield, etc. People were at a loss when they wished to visit those living in the 1500 blocks of said streets; therefore, cutting out 1300 and 1400 blocks. Sylvan still is able to commute to North Dallas without the aid of I-30 or 35-E. The “Hills of Kessler and Oak Cliff” has a view of Dallas and surroundings, but if you close it with tall buildings it will end up just like downtown Dallas – bunch of buildings and tall highways. There is not as much racism as the newspaper and television report. Some people take pride in their heritage and like to trace it back to the beginning. For example, when people of South and East Texas moved to South Dallas, the Jewish Community around Forest Ave (now MLK) moved to Preston Hollow. The Israelites also take up residency nearby. Caucasians live everywhere. When R. L Thornton Freeway went through the Oak Cliff/Wynnewood residential area, they chose the homes instead of apartment buildings because it was less expensive. The owners were forced to sell or be condemned. Between Dallas and Fort Worth, Bluebonnets and Sunflowers are uprooted – miles and miles of highway – no scenery.
