Green Brick Partners Subsidiary GHO Homes Closes on Barrier Island Site in Vero Beach, Florida

GHO Homes to develop single-family and attached villas with beach access across 26 acres.

PLANO, Texas, Oct. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Brick Partners, Inc. (GRBK) (“Green Brick”) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, GHO Homes, has closed on the land for its newest community on the Vero Beach barrier island in Vero Beach, Florida.

GHO Homes intends on constructing new homes across the 26+/- acre parcel, divided between single-family and attached villas.  Homes in the community will be priced starting under $1 million.  Plans for the new homes and villas are still in design, with a planned opening for sales in 2021.

"Part of what makes this community so special is that the site represents one of the last parcels of any size on the north end of the island for residential development," said Bill Handler, President of GHO Homes.  "We believe this community will quickly become one of our premier sites for those seeking a new home, with a Vero Beach island location built to today's updated standards".

The community, located on the corner of Wabasso Causeway and A1A, will offer residents deeded beach access, which enhances the value of those seeking a beach lifestyle without beach property. This new community will bring an additional level of opportunities to live in a GHO Home. Currently, GHO Homes is building in over 20 neighborhoods throughout Indian River County and offers products from the low $200s to over $1 million. 

"GHO Homes has worked aggressively this year expanding their brand throughout the Treasure Coast, opening 6 new communities for sale, with plans for an additional 2 communities before year end. Orchid Cove, GHO Homes other island community, will open its new model center in December," said Jim Brickman, CEO of Green Brick Partners. "Despite the higher price points of the island, the product offerings, included features, and GHO Homes quality workmanship provides the buyers a great value for their investment."
