Both the Espresso Break property and West Plaza are a part of the "super block", the area of Town Center that is zoned for up to 7 stories. The block has a number of property owners with parcels in odd shapes and some shared parking lots.

The magenta area in between the two properties is owned by Calvary Fellowship Church, who also owns the building that the post office is in as well as the main church building south of West Plaza. The gas station and the building with Mandarin Chile are both separate owners.
