Taylor Morrison, Highland Homes Join Cane Island as West Houston Community Prepares To Open Second Phase
Two of the nation’s top-selling homebuilders are coming home to Cane Island. Taylor Morrison and Highland Homes have announced plans to join the award-winning west Houston master planned community where both will add new family homes in Cane Island’s second phase.
Taylor Morrison, ranked number seven among the nation’s 100 top-selling homebuilders, will add new family homes on 60-foot Cane Island homesites while Highland Homes, number 21 in the 2017 rankings, will build new family homes on 55- and 80-foot homesites. New model homes by Taylor Morrison and Highland Homes, both fully furnished and expertly decorated, are expected to open in the spring.
Cane Island’s other phase two homebuilders will be announced in the coming weeks. The second phase of the community of new homes spans just over 100 acres with more than 250 homesites.
The addition of Taylor Morrison and Highland Homes comes just after Cane Island celebrated its new direct accessibility to Interstate 10 via the extended Cane Island Parkway. Since the opening of Cane Island Parkway at Highway 90 in late October, new home sales in Cane Island are up 20 percent from the previous year.
“No question the opening of the parkway into Cane Island was a game-changer for the community,” notes Dan Naef, president of Cane Island developer Rise Communities, the GHBA’s 2017 Developer of the Year “The addition of Taylor Morrison and Highland Homes certainly enhances our momentum heading in the 2018.”
Cane Island Parkway ultimately will be extended through the community’s second phase north of Franz Road.
The carefully planned, 1,200-acre community officially opened in the spring of 2015 offering convenient I-10 access minutes west of the Grand Parkway, proximity to major west Houston employers and Katy ISD schools, including the all-new Bryant Elementary.
Since then, the 2016 Greater Houston Builders Association Community of the Year has attracted first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers and active empty nesters with new homes starting in the mid-$200’s by CalAtlantic Homes, Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes, Shea Homes, Toll Brothers and Trendmaker Homes. Eleven fully furnished models homes are open daily.
The community also offers The Estates at Cane Island, an exclusive gated section of luxury custom homes on half-acre homesites.
Residents enjoy unlimited access to the Cane Island Amenity Village and its 24-hour, two-story fitness center, yoga studio with 200+ on-demand videos, lap pool, family pool with poolside cabanas and water play area, café, tree house, loft with comfortable seating and outdoor fireplace, event center with commercial kitchen, and glass-enclosed Conservatory, ideal for private events, with a seasonal wall of fresh flowers.
The community’s award-winning arrival experience features a three-acre lake with seven, 30-foot fountains and its impressive Living Arches, custom-made steel sculptures with thousands of individually controlled, programmable LED lights in glass leaves that change colors and patterns for the seasons.
