Cinnamon Shore to Expand Further


With the village of Cinnamon Shore flourishing, its $1.3 billion expansion, Cinnamon Shore South, is rising quickly and strengthening its influence on the Texas Coast. Almost three times larger than the original, 63-acre community established in 2007, the nearby, new development boasts 150-Gulf-front acres.

In just over a year, ‘South’ has sold 25 home sites, with almost a dozen luxury homes finishing this spring. Construction on the resort-style pool complex has started, and work on the first of four dune crossovers begins soon. “Cinnamon Shore South gives Texans a new alternative for an upscale beach vacation right here in Texas,” says developer Jeff Lamkin of Sea Oats Group.

Cinnamon Shore South follows New Urban design principles that call for a pedestrian-friendly aesthetic. Visitors enjoy charming, luxury vacation homes set along walkable, landscaped streets, paver sidewalks, parks and green spaces, plus a Town Center with retail and restaurants. The new community centers on a 7-acre lake and offers home sites that overlook the beach, lake, parks, and streetscapes. With only two Gulf-front lots remaining from the initial release at South, the developer recently opened a second group of home sites in prime locations, including six along the Gulf that are selling swiftly.

“With so much Gulf-front land marked for preservation along North and South Padre Islands, premium beachfront lots are hard to come by,” says Lamkin. “But at Cinnamon Shore South, buyers have their choice of Gulf-front lots, along with other prime sites around the community.”
