A New Dawn for Baldwin County, Alabama – September, 2023

The Visionary Leader and CEO of UC Funds, Daniel Palmier, strikes gold yet again in the realm of real estate investing. Seven years back, Dan set his sights on Gulf Shores, Alabama, a quaint beach community along the Gulf of Mexico. Then, a complete brand renovation of a golf and apartment community to become ONE Club Gulf Shores, a top-tier community celebrated as the number one residential community in Baldwin County for four years running.

Featured in a recent Wall Street Journal article, Baldwin County has garnered attention as the new hotspot for those seeking an idyllic, affordable, and quality lifestyle in a cordial community. This includes not only retirees but also a growing crowd of professionals between 30-50 years old who have embraced the work-from-home trend. Gulf Shores has served as a landing place for individuals from Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, the Midwest states, and even the Mid-Atlantic.

Gulf Shores has also become a popular vacation hub, serving as an alternative to Florida beaches. With the motto of “Small Town, Big Beach,” many vacationers have begun to prefer the quieter and calmer lifestyle of the Alabama beach towns, less crowded with tourists but still bursting with family activities, nightlife, nature, and restaurants. Those looking to make this vacation lifestyle more permanent may be influenced by the new renovations coming to ONE Club and Gulf Shores.

Daniel Palmier and UC Funds have taken a step further with an ambitious investment in 100 acres of land directly adjacent to the ONE Club multifamily and mixed-use resort community on the bustling Route 59 and County Road 6, amassing a total investment that sprawls over an impressive 200 contiguous acres.

This newly claimed land will soon be transformed into a stunning mixed-use resort experience, an epicenter of best-in-class homes, townhomes, retail, entertainment, luxury RV parks, senior housing, and so much more, including Bar 45, complimenting the best 45 holes in golf, and a Top Golf swing suite. Every element will be in harmony with the existing ONE Club renovations carried out over the past 7 years. Daniel enthuses, “Our passion for Gulf Shores is boundless. We remain committed to generating value, fostering economic growth, and providing additional opportunities for businesses and residents to choose our beautiful town.”
