Katy’s Cane Island Wins Award for Best Community Feature

Cane Island’s Living Arches, part of the Katy master-planned community’s impressive arrival experience, has won a Texas Star Award for Best Special Feature of a Community.

Presented by the Texas Association of Builders, the Texas Star Awards showcase the outstanding work of builders, remodelers, architects, designers and sales, marketing and construction professionals throughout Texas.  The award is the only statewide tribute to excellence in the home building industry.

Stretching over Cane Island Parkway, Cane Island’s Living Arches are comprised of two steel sculptures incorporating hundreds of glass leaves and thousands of programmable LED lights which change colors with the seasons and for special occasions.  A motion sensor activates the show as a car approaches, and its planter boxes allow for native Texas vines to grow and intertwine through the sculptures.

“When we designed Cane Island, we wanted to create an arrival experience that says ‘you’re somewhere special,’” notes Dan Naef, president of Rise Communities, developer of Cane Island. “It’s certainly an honor to be recognized by our industry.”

Cane Island also won Texas Star Awards for Best Showroom Sales Center and Best Sales Brochure by a developer.

One of the most sought-after master-planned communities west of Houston, Cane Island offers new luxury homes from the $200s to the millions, including those in gated sections and on prized cul-de-sac homesites from Coventry Homes, Toll Brothers, Ryland Homes, Shea Homes, David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes and Trendmaker Homes.   Residents enjoy a resort-style Amenity Village along with easy access onto Interstate 10 via the Cane Island Parkway. 

The community also offers The Estates at Cane Island, a gated custom home neighborhood with Houston’s first street pantries.
