Diamond Beach Holdings LLC and Ashlar Development LLC broke ground on Whitecap NPI, Corpus Christi’s first-ever master-planned community within its city limits. It is also the first and only coastal contemporary luxury residential and resort destination on North Padre Island.


“Today marks a significant milestone for the future of Corpus Christi and North Padre Island,” said Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo. “Whitecap NPI is a catalyst for economic activity on the Island and mainland and will benefit residents and visitors. This high-quality development will bring new and expanded services, improved water quality and infrastructure and significant revenue to the city.”


“We are excited to celebrate this incredible milestone and the positive impact the development will have on Corpus Christi and the Texas Gulf Coast,” said Dennis Nixon, CEO and Chairman of International Bancshares Corporation. “International Bancshares Corporation is committed to investing in this community and this one-of-a-kind project because we believe it is critical to the future of Corpus Christi and Nueces County.”

“We have been very conscious of creating an interactive community where nature can balance itself alongside development for the long-term benefit of the environment, locals and visitors,” said Nixon.


“Whitecap sets a new standard for coastal living,” said Steve Yetts, president of Ashlar Development. “The focus is on building up, not out, and enhancing the feel of community through both canal- and street-level experiences. Whitecap is destined to become the most influential coastal community on the Texas Coast, if not the country.”
