Lynn Development to break ground on Pelican Place
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.
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.
