Mustang Island, Texas, Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sea Oats Group today announced the spring 2018 opening of Five Town Center, the first mixed-use development at Cinnamon Shore, Mustang Island’s premier “new urbanism” resort living community.

“We are excited to lead the charge in bringing mixed-use development and exceptional retail to Mustang Island,” said Jeff Lamkin, CEO of Sea Oats Group, developers of Cinnamon Shore. “With Five Town Center, we will significantly increase the upscale retail and creative dining options available within a short stroll of Cinnamon Shore owners’ homes.”

Five Town Center will house several distinctive restaurants and retailers, including Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria, a contemporary, inventive restaurant that will serve coal-fired New York-style pizza, fresh Italian pastas, salads, desserts and signature coal-fired chicken wings; The Bottle Shop, a boutique liquor shop featuring specialty liquors, unique wines and mixers; The Market, a small grocery offering fresh fruits, vegetables and specialty items; and an ice cream and candy shop, the name of which will be decided via a contest among local elementary school children. Already open nearby at the Kiera Pool is the C Bar Café, a poolside café serving lunch and dinner, with a full cocktail menu.

Nestled behind 300 feet of protective dunes and just minutes from Corpus Christi, Cinnamon Shore is the ultimate expression of coastal living. The vibrant, master-planned “new urban” development on Texas’ Coastal Bend promotes an environmentally friendly lifestyle by combining elegant housing, work spaces, retail amenities, and parks and recreational facilities in a highly livable, walkable seaside resort community. Nearby activities include links-style golfing, unique shopping, parasailing and charters, all effortlessly booked for residents and guests through Cinnamon Shores’ exclusive concierge services.

Over the past decade, Sea Oats Group has been one of the most successful developers of coastal properties in any market nationwide, including the Texas Gulf Coast, where the value of its beachfront portfolio is unequalled.

With phase I of Cinnamon Shore 85 percent sold out, Sea Oats Group last month announced it is embarking on a $1.3 billion, 300-acre expansion featuring distinctive new home designs and a wide array of appealing amenities. The phase II expansion will take place over 15 to 20 years and will more than quadruple the size of the existing community. It will encompass Cinnamon Shore South, an $800 million investment, and Cinnamon Shore Bay Shore, projected to be a $500 million buildout. Sea Oats Group envisions four primary pillars of distinction for phase II: (1) home craftsmanship and a lifestyle unrivaled on the Gulf Coast; (2) a dining district with dozens of restaurants to please any palate or mood; (3) enticing destination retail; and (4) a health and wellness center. 

 Phase II will include a 3,300-foot wide beachfront, maintained daily – almost three times the size of the beach at Cinnamon Shore North. Eventually, the development will lie on both sides of State Highway 361, about a mile south of Cinnamon Shore North, with a golf cart bridge enabling residents to easily access amenities on both sides of the roadway. Plans include multiple swimming pools and lakes to provide refuge and enhance the landscape. A key feature of phase II – an approximately 10-acre lake, one of the largest on the Texas Gulf Coast – will be encircled by a mile-long boardwalk. The development will also feature honeymoon cottages, town centers for retail within each phase and a boutique hotel opening in 2018. Site work is already underway, and Sea Oats Group expects to begin building homes on the property in mid- to late-2018.

“With Five Town Center, we are taking a significant step toward fulfilling our vision of making Cinnamon Shore an unparalleled place to live, work and play on Mustang Island,” said Lamkin. “Phase I has already been extremely well-received, but as we roll out our phase II plans over the next several months, we anticipate an exponential increase in interest in our development as an ultimate coastal destination.”

 Construction of Five Town Center will be completed in late 2017. Its retail establishments will open in the first quarter of 2018, in time for spring break.
