The Texas Hamptons

Oh please.
A small trailer with a sign out front was advertising Beachtown, a New Urbanist community of pastel-colored shorefront homes. The sales team inside [says] that eventually up to 2,000 shore area homes would be built around three town squares with shops, parks and a lagoon. Andrés Duany, a leading architect in the New Urbanism movement, had designed the project. The Wisemans liked what they saw.
