Rise Communities, developer of the Texas 288 master-planned community of Meridiana and the Katy master-planned community of Cane Island, has won the prestigious Developer of the Year Award from the Texas Association of Builders.

Rise Communities also was awarded for Meridiana as Best Community Over 20 Acres based on an on-site visit by an assembled panel of real estate development professionals.

Meridiana, Houston’s first master-planned community with outdoor learning labs for all ages, currently ranks as the top-selling community along the Texas 288 corridor with homes priced in the $200s.

“When the top minds in home construction and real estate development give you a thumbs up, that’s certainly speaks volumes for the quality of our communities,” says Dan Naef, president of Rise Communities.

Katy’s Cane Island, the 2016 GHBA Community of the Year, was recognized with Star Awards for Best Billboard, Best Website and Best Television Commercial.  Last year, Cane Island was recognized with Star Awards for its Livings Arches arrival experience as Best Community Feature, Best Showroom Sales Center and Best Sales Brochure by a developer.

Established in 1992, the Star Awards are the only statewide tribute to excellence in the home building industry, showcasing the work of Texas real estate professionals in more than 100 categories.  

Cane Island offers new luxury homes from the mid $200s to the millions, including those in gated sections and on prized cul-de-sac homesites.  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. 

Meridiana offers new homes from the $200s to the $500s just south of Pearland on Texas Highway 288 and Meridiana Parkway minutes between the Texas Medical Center and several Brazoria County employers.  It also is home to a sprawling, resort-style Amenity Village, Meridiana Elementary School, and the future Alvin Independent School District competition varsity stadium, opening fall 2018.
