Austin-based PSW Real Estate has met with Kings Highway Conservation District neighbors some 10 times since February regarding the Austin-based developer’s plan to build 32 new homes in the neighborhood.
Neighbors are satisfied with PSW’s plans, says Jenni Stolarski, a real estate agent whose home is across the street from the planned development near Twelve Hills Nature Center. City Council could approve a zoning change today so that the development can go forward.
The 3-acre tract, four blocks at Mary Cliff and Kings Highway, is the former site of apartments. Now-defunct developer Incap had won zoning approval for townhomes there before losing the property and three others in Oak Cliff to foreclosure in 2010.
The homes would be two stories on 2,500-foot lots with detached garages. The developer has agreed that none of the garages will face the street, and the company negotiated with neighbors to find suitable setbacks and traffic patterns, Stolarski says. The homes must be built in the approved architectural styles for the neighborhood, craftsman, prairie or Tudor revival.
