Elyson announces homebuilders as 3,642-acre community heads toward fall grand opening

Newland Communities has announced a lineup of eight homebuilders for the first phase of Elyson, its 3,642-acre community at Grand Parkway and FM 529, approximately six miles north of I-10 West.

Chesmar Homes, Darling Homes, David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Pulte, Trendmaker Homes and Westin Homes will build in the first phase of Elyson, which will include 337 homes. The community’s grand opening is planned for this fall.

Homebuilders have not released their pricing for Elyson, but homes in the first phase are expected to be priced from the high $200,000s to the $600,000s and up. The first phase will include five neighborhoods for five different price ranges, with homesites offered in 50-, 55-, 60-, 65- and 70-foot widths.

Overall, Elyson is planned for more than 6,000 single-family homes, along with more than 750 acres of parks, trails, recreation centers, waterways and natural open space.

In June, Elyson homebuilders will begin construction of 10 model homes in a Model Home Village located next to the community’s flagship recreational amenity and new-home information center. Both the Model Home Village and this amenity, called Rorick House, will be completed for the fall grand opening.

Elyson is the fourth community that Newland has developed in the Katy Independent School District. The largest, the 8,100-acre Cinco Ranch community, has consistently ranked as one of the top-selling communities in the nation, and is expected to be built out by 2018. Newland has also completed Seven Meadows and Grayson Lakes in Katy ISD.

Elyson is owned in a joint venture partnership between American Newland Communities, LLC (Newland) and North America Sekisui House, Ltd. (NASH).

Newland is the largest private developer of master-planned mixed-use communities in the United States, with more than 45 years of community development experience and with more than 40 communities currently under development in 14 states.

NASH is the U.S. business operations unit and a full subsidiary of Sekisui House Ltd., Japan’s largest homebuilder and a leading diversified developer since 1960.
