GALVESTON, Texas – (Realty News Report) – Manny Mehos, CEO of Green East Realty, announced plans to develop Roseate Beach, an upscale residential community on Galveston Island’s West End.
Roseate Beach will offer 172 homesites, including 22 beachfront lots, set within a landscape that preserves and accentuates the natural beauty of the Texas coast.
The project will be developed in two phases, with Phase One slated to break ground in late fall 2023.
“This is the perfect time and place to create an upscale housing development on the Texas coast, and in Galveston in particular,” said developer Mehos. “With its close proximity to the fourth most populous city in the United States, providing remote workers convenient access to both their office and beach house, Galveston Island has enjoyed a recent spike in demand for vacation properties, second homes, and investment properties. As a proud Galveston native committed to making a lasting impact in my hometown, my vision is to create a first-of-its-kind development in Galveston unlike anything else on the island.”
Roseate Beach is located on FM 3005, just east of 11 Mile Road.
Roseate Beach residents will have numerous access points to a broad stretch of beach expanded by the continuation of the Galveston Island Beach Nourishment Project, an ongoing effort to protect and preserve the beachfront for future generations by mitigating shoreline erosion. In addition to unrivaled beach access, the community emphasizes pedestrian circulation and embraces an environmentally sensitive, nature-focused design. A network of trails and greenways weaves through a coastal ecosystem where residents experience the area’s native landscape and passage to the various open spaces throughout the community, including a central promenade, community park and wetland preserve.
The extensive native plantings provide a welcoming habitat for local wildlife, including the project’s namesake: the Roseate Spoonbill, a large bird known for its pink feathers.
“Our primary goal for Roseate Beach is to connect people with nature,” Zachary Broussard of Baton Rouge, La.-based CARBO Landscape Architecture, the community’s master planner. “The native marsh and dune landscape of Galveston Island is exceptionally beautiful, and Roseate Beach celebrates that natural beauty by creating an immersive pedestrian experience within the landscape. Every resident has direct access to the extensive greenway network from their home and can walk or bike to any destination within the community, all while enjoying the land’s exceptional scenery.”
Inspired by the simple, graceful structures of coastal areas, the forms and materials of Roseate Beach homes and buildings will create a character unique to Galveston.
Through the guidance of an architectural pattern book, they will visually complement one another and the coastal landscape, while offering modern luxuries in a relaxed environment. More than a group of individual homes, Roseate Beach’s cohesive design concept will establish a true sense of community, foundational to authentic seaside living. Expansive porches, elevated upper-floor balconies, soaring windows and French doors blur the line between indoor and outdoor spaces, and this distinct architectural character will be a hallmark of Roseate Beach.
“The use of simple building forms will allow the homes to serve as the backdrop on which the residents, community and nature take center stage,” said Chris Janson, architect and principal at LRK. “The clean lines of the homes will complement the native coastal landscape and natural beauty of the island, while expansive glass and outdoor living spaces allow owners the opportunity to connect with nature.”
