Land in St. Croix
The most rural of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix has quite a bit of available land for sale. Do you have a vision of your ideal custom-built island home? Or perhaps you’re an investor with a plan to transform vacant land into St. Croix’s next great venture. From small parcels to multiple acres, incredible ocean views to choice locations, the opportunities to buy land in St Croix are many.
Land in St Croix can range in price from $15,000 to $200,000+ — or several million for prime beachfront property that is zoned for commercial development. There are many architects and builders on island who can assist with design and construction of your island home. Construction costs start at about $275 per square foot, but depend greatly on your home site, materials, finishings and amenities. One surprise to many statesiders looking to build on St. Croix is the need for a cistern to collect rain water, which can account for almost 10% of your total building cost.
Most people here will say that one of the things they love most about our island home is that it’s not overly developed with housing or overrun by resorts. Fortunately, there is still room for growth without taking away from St. Croix’s rolling countrysides and natural beauty.
