Braden Power first pointed out the site to me more than a year and a half ago, when a friend
of mine was moving to town and looking for an apartment. It just so happened that one half of
the Power brothers’ developing company, PowerProperties(, was
the person who showed us around.

Most neighbors would know Braden and his brother, Craig, from their renovated apartments
along Gaston, like The Verandahs and Stardust. But that day, Braden Power told me that on
the vacant land across from PowerProperties’ leasing office at Gaston and Glasgow, the
brothers planned to build townhomes that reflect the architecture of the neighborhood. I’ve
occasionally driven by since then, wondering what happened to their plans, until reading a
press release(
htm) today stating the City of Dallas has given them the green light.

Construction will begin in January, and according to the press release, their homes will be the
first new construction along Gaston in 20 years.
