Michael Stuart's insight:
Brad Ballard, founder of NewCoast Properties, plans to develop 35 homesites at Seagrass Beach, located on 33.5 acres off SH 87, about 11 miles west of SH 124 southeast of Houston. The gated home lots, which average a little more than an acre, are priced from the low $200,000s. The luxury community will feature unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and several high-end amenities, including an 18-foot-tall elevated pool with six cabanas, a beachside fire pit, four manicured lawn areas and a stocked fishing pond.The project has buyers lined up, and lot development and amenities are expected to be finished in the next six months. NewCoast Properties also acquired nearby Laguna Harbor from Crown Team Texas LLC and plans to add a full-service marina, fuel and restaurant.

What thrived during the Texas coast recession?
29 Jan 2015

This study is about the lessons learned from two “high-end real estate project developers” that thrived during the worse recession and storms to hit the Texas coast in history. A silver lining from the unfortunate times the region experienced from 2008 to 2012.

At the real estate peak in 2007, over a dozen high-end projects were under way on the Texas coast transforming the skyline and promising better lifestyles. Some of the projects completely failed, most will redeem their value sometime in the future, but only two thrived and are roaring out of the recession.

The report shows how it was a combination of negative factors that took the Texas coast market by storm, while Texas overall had only minor effects from the recession.
