PD-15 Update: Preston Place Back On Market While Provident Signs Royal Orleans

By Jon Anderson / December 19, 2019 / 5 Comments

It seems the years-long process for changing PD-15 didn’t end at City Hall, as expected. And the residents of Preston Place won’t have a buy-out check under the Christmas tree, at least not from Provident.

Three projects were reviewed at this month’s Oak Lawn Committee. One was a school addition, one was yet another apartment building, and the third was this looker of an office building.
