Commercial & Retail Development on League City’s West Side

If you are unsure as to where League City’s west side begins, just cross over (or under) Texas Gulf Freeway I-45 to the west and you will be there. Many new homes are located on the west side and now commercial and retail developers are planning projects and clearing land.

The Marketplace at Ninety-Six
A $40mil, 36-acre shopping center is being developed by NewQuest Properties. The marketplace is located at the northeast and southeast corners of League City Parkway and Hobbs Road. A 123,000 square-foot HEB grocery store will anchor the project which will be built in two phases. Phase I will consist of building the grocery store and fuel station as well as a bank, shopping center, fast food restaurant and drug store. It is expected to be operational in late 2016, Hatcher said. Phase II is projected to be operational in 2018 and consist of several restaurants, a bank, shopping center, and professional office buildings.

The project is set for completion early 2016. There are more than 6,000 homes within the immediate area, with nearby residential communities including Brittany Lakes, Brittany Bay, Sedona, Westover Park and Magnolia Creek.

Walmart Neighborhood Market
Mark Rohr, League City-City Manager, posted information about this project in his City Manager Report, dated January 30, 2015.

“The City received plans this week for an approximately 40,000 square foot Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market that will anchor a larger retail development at the southeast corner of FM 518 and Landing Boulevard.

The grocery-dominant store is approximately one-quarter the size of a Wal-Mart Supercenter and similar to those same Wal-Mart concepts in Houston, Pearland, and Atascosita. The store is also planned to include a fueling center, for which the City Council is currently considering zoning approval via special use permit (SUP). …

The developer plans to break ground in March and open to the public November 2015.”

John Eagle Honda to open dealership in League City
League City/Kemah Connections, T.J. Aulds, January 28, 2015

“John Eagle Honda plans to open a 60,000 square foot car dealership and service center on the Gulf Freeway. League City council last month gave initial approval for the auto dealer to build on land located on Interstate 45 South between Houston Garden Center and American Fence and Supply.

According to company officials, the dealership will have a two-story showroom, an auto parts facility and large service center. The 16.3-acre site will have enough room for a possible 15,000-square foot expansion of its service center, officials said. The price tag for the dealership wasn’t announced.

The dealership would be the first new car business in League City since 2008, Economic Development Manager Owen Rock said.”
