New Urbanism on the new Texas Coast

Posted by Lianne Thomas on Friday, February 7th, 2020 at 2:29pm.

Our Mustang Island and Port Aransas Realty agents braved the cold 57 degree weather yesterday to take a tour of Cinnamon Shore. Yes, we live on an island and when we have to pull out the scarves and boots in place of flip flops, we just aren't used to it!

Cinnamon Shore is a luxury beachfront community located on Mustang Island. Cinnamon Shore broke ground in 2006 and is comprised of about 200+ homes, townhomes and condos. This master-planned community was developed by Sea Oats Group out of Georgia and was intricately and carefully designed by Mark Schnell, who lives on 30-A in Florida, and adheres to “New Urbanism.” If you aren’t familiar with that term, new urbanism is a planning/development approach based on the principles of walkable blocks and streets, shopping and dining in close proximity and nearby public spaces for neighbors to gather. Cinnamon Shore South, an expansion of the first community, broke ground just before Hurricane Harvey hit the gulf coast. While that slowed things down for a short period, sales picked back up and CS South (Cinnamon Shore South) is now at about 25 lots sold with plans to develop 1,000 units. Other plans for CS South include a conference center, resort hotel, (which will be a new addition to Mustang Island) resort swimming pools, a boardwalk and paver trails.

Homes will be in the price range of $600,000 to 3 million.
