Katy, TX News (May 30, 2017) – As Cane Island begins its second summer since its grand opening, the Katy master-planned community reports more than 50% of its phase one homesites either sold or under construction as new home buyers continue to flock to the 2016 GHBA Community of the Year.

Upon build out, Cane Island’s first phase will include approximately 550 traditional and lifestyle patio homes from the $200’s to the millions amidst a resort-style setting which earned Cane Island the prestigious GHBA Community of the Year Award for 2016.


Lawren Eckhardt, Cane Island’s director of marketing, says the presence of the community’s resort-quality Amenity Village plays a big role in attracting buyers at all price points.

“When families come to our Amenity Village, they just sense they’re in a different kind of place,” says Eckhardt.  “With a family pool and cabanas, children’s water playground, 24-hour fitness center, yoga studio with on-demand classes and lap pool, it’s like having a private resort in your neighborhood.”

Eckhardt adds Cane Island’s oversized homesites with extended back yards are another big selling point. The community also offers the Estates at Cane Island, a gated custom home neighborhood featuring half-acre homesites and Houston’s first street pantries.

Other conveniences include a full-time Lifestyle Director who plans family movie nights, wine dinners and tastings, culinary classes, signature and holiday festivals, arts workshops and photography classes.  Cane Island also has been recognized for its impressive Living Arches, two steel sculptures stretching over Cane Island Parkway incorporating hundreds of glass leaves and thousands of programmable LED lights which change colors with the seasons and for special occasions.

“You add it all up and you have the ideal community for first-time home buyers, move-up buyers and active empty nesters looking to downsize,” says Eckhardt.  “Our residents experience a resort life right here in Katy.”

Looking forward, Eckhardt says the extension of the Cane Island Parkway into Cane Island will be a big boost for the community.  Upon completion later this year, motorists will be able to travel directly from I-10 north on Cane Island Parkway and into the residential development.

Cane Island also has added a full-time Realtor Relations Ambassador, Monica Conchola, to serve as a one-stop resource for licensed agents.

To reach Cane Island, take the new Cane Island Parkway exit off Interstate 10 minutes west of the Grand Parkway.  Head north on Cane Island Parkway and take the temporary detour into the community.  For more information, including builder incentives, go to www.CaneIsland.com.
