KATY, TX (October 13, 2016) – Less than a year after its grand opening, Katy’s Cane Island has been named Community of the Year by the Greater Houston Home Builders Association.

The prestigious PRISM Award for Community of the Year is considered one of the top honors presented annually by the GHBA as part of its recognition of the best of the best in local homebuilding.

“Our vision for Cane Island was to create a special community of new homes with attention to every last detail,” notes Dan Naef, president of Rise Communities, developer of Cane Island.  “It’s certainly gratifying to be acknowledged by our peers.”

The community of new homes also received PRISM awards for Community Entrance of the Year, Recreation Center of the Year and Landscape Design of the Year.

Cane Island’s award-winning arrival experience features a three-acre lake with seven, 30-foot fountains followed by 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.   Close to 1,000 transplanted trees and large planter boxes add to the arrival experience.

Cane Island’s resort-style Amenity Village features a 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, observation deck with outdoor fireplace, event center with professional kitchen and a glass-enclosed Conservatory, ideal for private events, with a seasonal wall of fresh flowers.

One of the most sought-after master-planned communities west of Houston, Cane Island presents 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.

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

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.
