Seven years and a lot of work have now resulted in groundbreaking on South Padre Island and the Ci­bola Land Project. Troy Giles of Giles Realty & Management say that see­ing is believing when it comes to this new proj­ect.

“Oh yes,” said Giles, “so many people have said that they would be­lieve this when they could see it, and now with the equipment here and in op­eration they can see this is real.”

The project will pro­duce lots for five homes about eight miles north of the bridge. There will be paved streets, utilities and more for the homes and it comes after many years of work to get it done.

“This has been a long road,” said Giles, “from getting permits to running six miles of sewer lines and electric. Every step we took seemed to be a hurdle but we kept work­ing towards this goal.”
