Biz Buzz-Stewart Road Land

James “Beau” Yarbrough confirms he acquired the parcel of land at the corner of Stewart Road and 81st Street in Galveston. He’s planning some kind of residential development, but it’s too early for details, he said.

Land lines: Island businessman and developer James “Beau” Yarbrough this week confirmed he had acquired a 3.34-acre parcel at 81st Street and Stewart Road, not far from the Tor Baseball Field in Galveston. That explains the freshly posted “Sold” sign.

Any development likely will be residential, Yarbrough said. But it’s too early to say how many housing units or whether it will be a short-term or long-term rental development, he said.
