Lynn Development to break ground on Pelican Place

PALACIOS, Texas (Tuesday, August 10, 2021) – Lynn Development, alongside the Palacios Chamber of Commerce, will host a groundbreaking ceremony for Pelican Place at 10 A.M. on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. The 19-acre subdivision development on the north side of Palacios will soon be home to 70 new single-family homes.

Subdivision will feature 70 new single-family homes in Palacios

“This project is remarkable for Matagorda County, especially as it relates to recruiting and retaining business in the area,” said Scott Hardwick, Executive Director of the Palacios Economic Development Corporation. “A new subdivision is a huge benefit to the community. New housing stock will provide options for employers and workers alike – especially those people experiencing a watershed moment and leaving the bigger cities for more familial lifestyles in communities like ours.”

The first homesites will be located along Seventh Street on the north side of Palacios, located behind the Lowe’s Market grocery. 

Pelican Place features single-family homes beginning in the $150k range up to $200k. The subdivision offers five different floor plans–ranging from 1,218 sq. ft. to 1,505 sq. ft.–with four elevations of each floor plan available, for a total of 20 possible combinations for the one-level, 3BR/2BA, two-car garage homes.

These various footprints will maximize function and use of space, as well as energy efficiency. The prospective homeowners need only to make a few preferential choices at the beginning of the process, and the Lynn team will deliver a brand-new home that meets the needs and desires of the new resident.

“We are excited about partnering with the City of Palacios and the Palacios Economic Development Corporation to bring affordable housing to this community,” said Stuart A. Lynn. P.E., Founder of Lynn Development. “We feel with these price points we can significantly impact the community where it is needed most. We look forward to having homes ready by the end of 2021.”

Two home sites have already been purchased and construction contracts executed. Pelican Place will welcome its first residents in December 2021.

Palacios City Council unanimously approved Pelican Place in December 2020. At a city council workshop, Lynn presented information about the new subdivision for the body’s consideration and approval in a special-called meeting that followed. Currently, utilities are being installed at the location on Seventh Street, and streets will be installed in the coming weeks.

Pelican Place is ideal for first-time homebuyers and empty nesters alike, who seek the amenities of living near the bay without sacrificing time with family for a long commute. The development company is excited to market the location and encourage homebuyers to take advantage of historically low interest rates.

“We are thrilled to be the first residential development bringing new housing opportunities to Palacios,” said D.C. Dunham, Lynn Development’s chief executive. “We have been working with local banks, mortgage companies, and USDA to bring a wide range of financing opportunities. Our goal is to make homeownership an attainable and enjoyable process in the Palacios community.”

Matagorda County, and Palacios specifically, is known for its birding superiority. Many hundreds of bird species frequent the locale on migration paths, and people travel the world over to visit Palacios during peak migration times to watch and photograph rare birds. The development name, as well as the floor plan names and street names inside the development, pay homage to Palacios’ claim to fame.

Pelican Place is located just one mile from the South Bay Marina, Palacios Pavilion, and Palacios Bay Beach. Homeowners will have easy access to remarkable sunsets along the seawall, local shopping, and a multitude of desirable dining options. Whether a family is buying their first home or is looking to move up, they will enjoy comfort and convenience in this modern community.
