The urban-living home developer, PSW Real Estate, which already has staked its claim in the Oak Cliff and White Rock Lake areas, is making plans in Preston Hollow.

The City Plan Commission on Thursday is expected to approve a 32-lot, shared access development at 7700 Northaven at Freda Stern — right off the Northaven Trail.

The Austin-based firm is known for building around urban amenities, and this particular location makes sense. It has direct access to the trail, and sits right behind the Jewish Community Center and North Haven Gardens while still offering easy access to Central Expressway.

According to information the Hillcrest Forest Neighborhood Association posted online, PSW bought the four acres of property from North Haven Gardens with plans for single-family homes, averaging between 1,800 and 2,600 square feet, costing around $600,000 or more.

PSW also builds with energy-efficient materials — solar panels and the like — with a mission to “promote urban density and conservation, reduce waste and engender social connectivity.”

We’ll speak with the developer next week for more details on the Northaven project.
