Texas-based Legend Communities, experts in managing waterfront property developments, today announced Ludlow and Associates Construction as the general contractor for its approximately $86 million, 70-unit condominium development, The Residences at Tiki Island. The high-end, mixed-use residential project is located on Tiki Island near Galveston and future phases plan to include eight villas, a marina with restaurant, and boat barn for approximately 200 boats. Currently, the development is offering a founder’s incentive for early buyers.

“We are confident that Ludlow and Associates Construction will be a great asset to the team,” said Bill Hayes, Chief Operating Officer of Legend Communities. “Ludlow really stood out as being incredibly knowledgeable and their attention to detail and quality of work is impeccable. We know that having their talented team onboard will help us continue to drive sales.” 

Legend Communities expects to break ground this summer and the project completion is anticipated for summer 2024. The Residences at Tiki Island will offer 70 luxurious two, three, and four-bedroom condominium homes, ranging from 1,200 to more than 3,000 square feet. The top floor will feature two-story penthouses with elevators included in founding members’ residences. Elevators will be offered as an optional feature to floor plans for buyers outside of the founder’s incentive. Owners will have access to a fitness center, a resort-style pool, an outdoor kitchen and lounge area, and a dog park. It will be a golf cart-friendly community, with walkability, boat valet to accommodate easy water access, and enchanting bay views. Condo pricing is from the $800s to over $3 million. 

“We are honored to have been awarded this project,” said Mark Ludlow, President of Ludlow and Associates Construction. “We specialize in condos and most recently completed The Revere, a boutique condominium development in Houston, but this will be our first ‘coastal’ development. We’re really looking forward to working on a project of this size and uniqueness.” 

The Residences at Tiki Island represent a one-of-a-kind ownership opportunity as it’s the only mixed-use development on Tiki Island and the first new-build residential project on the island in 11 years. The development will offer exceptional community amenities for the avid boater/fisherman with future phases to include a Boat Barn for approximately 200 boats, call-ahead boat valet and a marina restaurant within steps of each home. Designed with the boating enthusiast in mind the amenities and condominium finishes reflect the ultimate in living on the water and ease of ownership for those desiring a lock-and-leave lifestyle or secondary home. No short-term rentals will be permitted. 

“This will be the one and only project of its kind in The Village of Tiki,” added Hayes. “It is a remarkable offering that combines lifestyle and high quality lock and leave residential.”
