The first master planned community in Katy, TX, called Cane Island, is set to open early next month on March 5th. A celebration will be held throughout the weekend and visitors can view the property’s 14 model homes.
The community is developed by Las Vegas based developer Rise Communities, LLC. Being a Las Vegas-based company means lots of glitz and glamour. This is actually a new trend for master planned communities in Houston and beyond. In order to compete with an ever changing, ever demanding client base who wants as many amenities as possible within a close range of where they live, developers are investing more and more money to build high-end and even unique amenities that you may even be surprised by.
In Cane Island, an amenity village will include a pool, two story fitness center, spa, and Bellagio-like conservatory. Community plans include eventually building 2000 homes on its 1000 acres near I-10 and the new Cane Island Parkway. Homes will be priced from $200,000 and up.
Harvest Green in Fort Bend is built by Johnson Development Corp and will have 30 acres of lakes, 280 acres of greenbelts and open space, 50 acres of parkland, and a very walkable trail system that connects everything. Harvest Green is set to open on March 12 and will be Houston’s first “agrihood.”
This new home subdivision will be anchored by a working farm and homes and common areas will have edible landscaping. Other amenities include a full scale farm to table restaurant, greenhouse, a vineyard and groves of fruit trees, a nursery, farm stands, and community gardens.
This is all in addition to the other amenities such as an expansive pool and patio, state of the art fitness center, community activities room, splash pad, spacious event lawn, amphitheater overlooking a lake, plenty of parks and playgrounds.
Harvest Green is a 1,300 acre community with an eventual 2000 homes priced from $260,000 to $550,000.
