Island residents and tenants looking for convenience in seaside living have new option with Palm Bay Galveston
Wan Bridge (WB), a Texas-based developer, builder and manager of build-to-rent (BTR) communities in Dallas and Houston, announced plans to build the first build-to-rent community, Palm Bay, on Galveston Island after purchasing bay accessible land in the existing Bayside at Waterman’s community.
The new BTR community, Palm Bay Galveston, will feature 94 single family detached homes in the neighborhood’s primary section. The homes will boast a signature island aesthetic designed by the company’s in-house design team that will evoke the architectural style of other Gulf Coast resort communities that homeowners have come to love such as Seaside and Water Color, Florida.
"As the BTR model of single family homes continues to gain popularity, it is changing the way of how we look at what is possible in residential real estate and in this case, even beach front and bayside communities have the opportunity to embrace this change," said Kevin Stuckey, Senior Vice President of Development for Wan Bridge. "Bringing the first BTR community to Galveston Island is an honor that we are excited about. Whether an island newcomer or longtime resident, we look forward to offering both long-term rental homes and condominiums that are always in demand on Galveston Island."
Palm Bay will feature both three- and four-bedrooms options with 2.5 bathrooms and living areas spanning 1,600 to 1,800 square feet. In addition to the traditional single-family options, WB will build more than 20 condominiums located in the neighborhood’s "Fish Camp Reserve."
Located at the 4500 block Stewart Road on Galveston Island, Palm Bay Galveston is on Lake Como, an inlet of Galveston Bay that features Galveston Country Club, the only golf club on the island, to the east and Galveston Island State Park to the west. Future tenants will have opportunities to access amenities that embrace the seaside lifestyle, including convenient access to the beach and direct access to the bay, including boat rentals. As Palm Bay Galveston is in close proximity to the country club, state park and Waterman’s Marina and Restaurant, tenants can lead a laid-back lifestyle while still enjoying a community feel, without the hassle of homeownership.
Construction is set to begin in December 2020.
