An agreement is pending with a hotel brand that could lead to a groundbreaking at Bayland Island in three months. 

As islands go, Bayland Island isn’t the most impressive you’ll come across. Nestled at the point where Goose Creek enters into Tabbs Bay, only a narrow strip of water separates it from Bayland Park, just south of the Fred Hartman Bridge. 

However, its proximity to the water is also the basis of its hope for the future, as the City of Baytown is working to develop a conference center and hotel on the island to take advantage of the stunning waterfront views on three sides.
