Galveston CAD hasn't helped my initial inquiries. I'm not sure how much lag time affects their records updates, but as of yesterday, it still showed that tract as belonging to the Credit Union across the street.

The tract in question is on record as being 15-2-0 (shorthand cross reference) at 2.081 acres in size.

Note that it says "W. League City Pkwy" without reference to a precise street address, however.
This will not be the only new construction to potentially affect us here in Centerpointe in the coming months. After a few years of commercial developmental doldrums, we should expect to see accelerated dirt sales in our general area in the near future. There tends to be a "domino effect" with development, where a few large projects touch off a cascade of additional projects as investors try to ride a hoped-for profit wave. I suspect that we've recently reached a developmental tipping point with the announcement of the following initiatives:
- There's the massive $70 million Tanger project underway just down the freeway from us near Dickinson.
- The Victory Lakes Park 'n' Ride recently opened.
- Last week, a large movie theatre project was announced. This will fundamentally change the character of the commercial area to the south of us and will likely prompt coat-tail projects just by itself.
- UTMB recently opened its Victory Lakes cancer center.
