Houston developer NewCoast Properties will hold a grand opening on May 28 for Seagrass Beach, its luxury beachfront community southeast of Houston, reports Houston Business Journal staffer Paul Takahasi.

The 33.5-acre site will feature 35 homes and broke ground last summer. The developer is now putting the finishing touches on the community’s luxury amenities, which include an 18-foot-tall elevated infinity-edge pool with six cabanas overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, a beachside fire pit, two large manicured lawn areas and two 15-foot-deep stocked fishing ponds.

Once the amenities are completed next month, NewCoast Properties will begin marketing the 35 home sites in earnest. So far, nine home lots — or about a quarter — of the 35 home lots in the community have been reserved. Home lots start at $225,000; the luxury vacation homes will start in the mid-$500,000s, Ballard said.
