Project envisioned to bring never before seen attractions to Jefferson County

Posted: Updated:

A new development planned for 97 acres in Nederland is being touted as the next big thing coming to Jefferson County.

County Commissioners Monday approved a ground lease agreement with an Arizona-based developer.  The four phase project will be developed on land next to the Jack Brooks Regional Airport. 

The Nederland Economic Development Corporation compares the project to the likes of the Kemah Board Walk and the Woodlands Mall. 

It is expected to have a hotel, retail and grocery stores, a convention center, education and healthcare facilities and entertainment. 

"There will be something for every single age," Nederland EDC Executive Director Kay Duciur

Since the land will be leased revenue will go back to the airport meaning less will be needed from the county budget for operations. 

Nederland also expects to see significant tax revenue from the project. Phase one will begin development in January. Completion of the entire project is expected to take five to six years.
