TEXAS CITY - Lago Mar, a long-awaited residential project along I-45 at Holland Rd., is underway.

Crews are working on infrastructure and preparing land for houses. Houston-based developer Land Tejas Cos., which is behind the project, is working on filling lot positions with builders.

So far, Land Tejas has contracted with home builders D.R. Horton, Westin Homes, Long Lake Ltd., Anglia Homes and Censeo Homes.

Those builders, however, have not made any announcements on home prices, according to Collin S. Campbell, a development manager with Land Tejas.

Lots in the first phase won’t be complete until mid-summer, with the second phase scheduled to be complete by the end of 2015.

The first phase consists of 170 lots ranging between 50 feet by 120 feet and 65 feet by 120 feet. The second phase will consist of 120 lots with lots of 45 feet by 120 feet and 55 feet by 120 feet.

Lago Mar is on land east and west of I-45, but Land Tejas’ 2,033 acres is all on the west side. Another 1,300 acres on the east side of I-45 is owned by two companies not affiliated with Land Tejas.

Land Tejas alone plans more than 4,000 home sites in gated and non-gated communities.

Commercial projects in the development include the 350,000-sf Tanger Outlets and the 60,000-sf Buc-ee’s convenience store and gas station.
