Grand Oak Village kicks off site development of 16-acre tract of land in League City with demolition of former Mrs. Baird’s bakery building.
James Brockway, broker/owner of Brockway Commercial and a representative for the group that owns Grand Oak Village, a 16 Acre development just north of the intersection of I-45 and League City Parkway in League City announced the demolition of the forty-five year old former Mrs. Baird’s distribution facility that has resided there for decades. Mr. Brockway stated that the building located at 1400 Link Road near the intersection at Calder Road had been slated to be renovated and reopened as Gilley’s, the popular nightclub from the 70s and 80s affiliated with country western recording artist Mickey Gilley. Those plans have changed although there is still some interest by one prospective buyer of a portion of the 15.89 acres that would create more of a performing arts venue as opposed to a restaurant/bar.
“In light of COVID, we as a development group stepped back and reassessed the best use for this tract of land”, said Mr. Brockway. “Given its location near I-45 and League City Parkway; its proximity to the ever-expanding University of Texas Medical Branch; the proposed convention center project at Chester Davis Sportsplex that will hopefully occur in the future; the upcoming completion of the freeway expansion; and an explosion of population in the area, we believe that there are certain uses that should take priority. We are exploring inquiries for the sale or build to suit for such users as medical, innovation, the performing arts, athletics as well as traditional pad users. We are under contract for the sale of two pads of approximately an acre each and we are just about ready to begin site work development on the project. Our goal is to be a good neighbor for the city and provide for a project that is welcomed and usable by the community.“
More details will be forthcoming!
