Posted on Jul 28, 2016 in Meridiana

MANVEL/IOWA COLONY (July 28, 2016) – Trendmaker Homes has opened the doors to a new, fully furnished model home in Meridiana, the all-new Texas Highway 288 master-planned community, where the luxury homebuilder is adding new homes on 55-foot homesites starting in the $290s.

Now open daily, Meridiana’s twelfth model home is a two-story, four-bedroom, three-bath showcase featuring open-concept family room, gourmet island kitchen, casual dining area, inviting master suite, spacious secondary bedrooms, game room and covered patio.

A collection of single and two-story plans by Trendmaker ranging from 2,432 – 2,951 square feet also are available offering the highest level of architectural designs with a variety of modern lifestyle conveniences and builder options.   Plus, several move-in ready homes by Trendmaker are completed or near completion.

With 12 new models now open, Meridiana’s development team continues to focus on the completion of the community’s resort-style Amenity Village where its Welcome Center and fitness center with on-site personal trainer and dedicated children’s area are now open.

Scheduled for completion this fall are Meridiana’s family pool with cabanas, lap pool, splash pad, amphitheater, café, fishing pier, glass-walled conservatory set over the water, outdoor play area, 60-foot tall Meridian Tower and an Ambassador Yacht for Meridiana dog ambassador Soleil, the community’s loveable golden retriever.

Also scheduled to open soon as part of the community’s initial phase are the first of Meridiana’s outdoor learning labs, three engaging outdoor learning and discovery experiences for every stage of life, created in collaboration with educators from the Alvin Independent School District.

The all-new on-site Meridiana Elementary School will open in August while the Meridiana/Texas Highway 288 interchange is scheduled for completion later this year.

Developed by Rise Communities, Meridiana is the newest master-planned community on Texas Highway 288 and the Meridiana Parkway (formerly County Road 56) minutes south of the Texas Medical Center.  Spanning 3,000 acres south of Highway 6, Meridiana also is minutes north of several major Brazoria County employers.
