Does anyone know anything about the project on Galveston Island that's supposed to have some big-name baseball players involved? All I've heard is that it's condos and will be designed by Gartner & Associates.

Roy Oswalt is involved with two other people. The project is on one of the ends of the island (west or east). I forget all the details but I'll get the info again from someone I know that is involved with this.

editor... thanks for the metro updates, all good news!

There is some info in this Chronicle story:

I was near the site of this project two weeks ago and they had they area blocked off with construction fences and there was a "sales center" set up in the Waterman's building next door. The renderings look nice and that section of the West End is pretty nice (in my opinion). In Galveston, particularly the west end, I never count any of these projects as a done deal until the concrete starts pouring. Especially since the marketing folks on this project were able to save money on thier signage by re-using the "Coming Soon" signs from the last project in the area that never got going.

Here's a link to the project website:

Some more information in the Houston Business Journal

A major league investor group has assembled 35 acres in Galveston with plans to develop high-end condominiums and a new marina and dry-stack boat storage, as well as to refurbish the old Stewart Mansion.

The majority investors are Todd Edwards and Robert Schwartz, who own Houston-based Stonehenge Real Estate Investment Co.

Other players in the deal include Roy Oswalt, pitcher for the Houston Astros; former Astros pitcher Woody Williams; Steve Sparks, former pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks; and Houston real estate broker Jimmy Pappas. The all-star investor lineup originated in Houston's Memorial area, where Edwards, Pappas and cousins Schwartz and Williams grew up. Edwards met Sparks at Texas A&M University, where both played baseball. And the men met Oswalt through his former teammate, Williams.
