Look for 16 high-end town houses to rise on the East End of the island — 1013-21 10th St. — some on the site currently occupied by the long vacant building that once housed the Micheletti grocery store.
Dr. Ahmed E. Ahmed and business partners are behind the development called The Palms on Galveston Island. The business partners plan eight duplexes, each containing two town houses. Each town house will have three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, living room, dining room, game room, and a two-car tandem garage. The town house designs are inspired by neighborhoods in the popular Heights area in Houston.
