Jesse Zimmer is looking forward to building more contemporary style homes near the shores of Surf City with rooftop views for residents and vacationers.
The town’s planning board recently received a subdivision plan for 2.2 acres of land. According to plans provided by Surf City’s planning and zoning department, plans for Decks to Sea LLC includes two parcels facing South Topsail Drive and another two will front the right of way of Charlotte Avenue.
Zimmer and his wife, Mandy, operate Stay TI, a business specializing in real estate sales and rental properties in Surf City.
“I love the Topsail Island area,” Zimmer said. “You’re only a few blocks away from downtown, but what’s nice is that you can go for a little stroll with your loved one and make it down to the peak and go unwind or you’re close enough we’re you can walk along the beach and relax.”
Zimmer, a former transportation businessman, is originally from Minnesota and lived in Raleigh for almost 20 years before he and Mandy move to the Wilmington area about six years ago.
They lived in a house on Charlotte Avenue, with a flattop roof, that is also a deck to host guests. He also pays tribute to veterans and people currently in the military with a “Thanks for your service” message on the top.
Another property on South Topsail Drive will have a large flat roof with an American flag. He’s planning to do more to honor veterans.
“I was never part of the military, but I want to show the people that were that I really love them for their dedication,” he said. “It’s always good to give back as much as you can. I think there’s a lot of interesting stuff you can do to help people who gave everything for us.”

The goal for the upcoming subdivision listed at 605 S. Topsail Drive include two duplexes and two single-family homes. Stay TI is working on another duplex across the street at 606 S. Topsail, a single-family home at 602 S. Shore Drive, and another a single-family home at 1823 N. Shore with a walkover.
Designs for certain single family homes will include swimming options from Steelwater Pools, a Holly Ridge-based business.
“I think it’s some of the best sunset views that you can get in Surf City,” Zimmer said about a single family property in the Intracoastal Waterway area.
Zimmer expects to see all of the projects completed in about two years.
