PSW is planning 44 new homes on land bordered by Van Buren, Canty, Fifth Street and Kidd Springs Park.

Construction on 44 new homes adjacent to Kidd Springs Park could begin as early as October. Austin-based PSW Real Estate met with Kidd Springs Central Tuesday to lay out plans for the development of two-story homes, which will sell for $300,000-$400,000.

The developer, which has about 95 homes under development in the Dallas area, including 32 at 1610 Kings Highway, expects to work fast. The homes at Kidd Springs could be finished by April 2014.

The homes at 901 Cedar Hill will comprise 1,500-2,500 square feet each and be built in the craftsman style, similar to the photo below. Some homes will face the streets — Van Buren, Canty and Fifth — and others will face an interior private drive. All will have carports or detached garages, wide front porches and small backyards. PSW also plans to “upgrade” the sidewalks to 7-foot widths, PSW’s area president for Dallas-Fort Worth, Adam Stetson, told neighbors.

Improved sidewalks will “really help the connectiveness of the community,” he says.

Neighbors can expect construction fences to go up within the next few weeks, and groundwork will begin around September.

PSW, which has about 600 new homes and multifamily units under development in the Austin area, expects to have as many as 200 new homes under development in the Dallas area by next year.
