7655 South BrasewoodHouston Years ago the electricity for a lot of south Texas was provided by a company known as Houston Light and Power Company. We picked a site full of trees, figured out how to build a series of stucco, compatible townhomes without removing one tree, and then used what products were available at the time to make them energy efficient. The architect was Houston's The Steinberg Design Collaborative’s Arthur Steinberg who has since gone to heaven.  The firm, founded by Arthur in 1957, continues today under the leadership of his son, Sanford. And we all worked hours and hours trying our best to meet our company’s president, Alan Rudy’s, innovative expectations.  We must have succeeded.

7655 SOUTH BRAESWOOD, HOUSTON This is a Houston Chronicle ad that Houston Lighting & Power Co. bought and ran on June 4, 1978.  The fellow in the photo is I. For some reason, people are inferring that building GREEN is a new idea.  Well, it isn't.  My company and I were doing it 31 years ago.   BILL CHERRY, REALTORS DALLAS - HIGHLAND PARK 214 503-8563 ON THE WEB
