Congratulations on becoming a new member of the Evia community! We hope that Evia will remind of you of traditional neighborhoods from your childhood. You can enjoy the camaraderie of your neighbors while exploring the natural treasures that Evia and Galveston Island have to offer.
Through our research of communities around the United States, we have designed Evia to be a neighborhood that honors the traditional style of homes in Galveston, preserves green space and sensitive areas, requires quality construction practices and promotes a sense of community while efficiently serving her residents and neighbors.
As sixth-generation Galvestonians, our love for our island home has driven our desire for Galveston Island to have this first-class development. Evia serves as a model for new urbanist design and smart growth on the Gulf Coast. The Village Center is a gathering place for all of the residents while the lakes and trails offer access to the unique natural landscape of our island. And, the style of the homes honors the rich architectural heritage of the island.
Our vision for the community is one that provides refuge from the hustle and bustle of life. At Evia, healthy and efficient, durable and comfortable homes offer peace of mind while the serenity of your surroundings offers a retreat for your soul!

Jose Antonio de Evia was a Spanish naval officer commissioned by his patron, Bernardo de Galvez, to draw detailed plans of the Gulf Coast from West Florid to Tampico, Mexico. During his exploration, he happened upon a barrier island at the inlet to a large bay and named the island “Galveston,” after his patron.
We live on a historic island. With all that she has to offer, the man who discovered our beloved home deserves to be recognized. Therefore, Galveston’s newest community honors Jose Antonio de Evia with gratitude for his exploration.
For more information about Jose Antonio de Evia, see the Texas State Historical Association website.
Evia is built upon a unique set of ideals that reflects traditional neighborhoods. Want to learn more?
