Katy’s Cane Island Reports Sharp Increase in 2018 New Home Sales


New home sales in Cane Island jumped an impressive 54 percent in 2018 as a growing number of west Houston families continue to discover the Katy community, its broad selection of new homes, resident-only amenities and ease of accessibility from Interstate 10 via Cane Island Parkway.

“Our buyers are busy families from the area who appreciate the convenience of immediate I-10 access,” said Lawren Eckhardt, director of marketing for the Katy community on Cane Island Parkway one half mile north of I-10.

Now in its third year, Cane Island offers new homes from the $200s to the millions by several award-winning Houston builders.  In 2018, more than half the community’s new home sales were on 50, 55 and 60-foot homesites.

“Very simply, we listened to what the market wanted – highly amenitized luxury homes on smaller properties,” said Eckhardt. The community’s Cane Quarter also continues to be a popular draw for buyers, Eckhardt added.

The resort-style setting features a lagoon-style family pool and cabanas, children’s water playground, lap pool, two-story fitness center, yoga studio with on-demand classes, fireplace loft, Katy’s only glass-walled conservatory and a central lawn for movie nights and other community gatherings.  An onsite restaurant also will open in Cane Quarter this spring.

Later this year, Cane Island will open two new model homes, a 60-foot plan by Shea Homes and a 100-foot plan by Partners in Building as the community continues to introduce new floorplan designs by Houston’s leading new home builders. “We’re constantly looking for opportunities to present the broadest selection of new home plans,” Eckhardt said.

The Katy community of new homes also offers an exclusive custom home neighborhood, The Estates at Cane Island, a gated enclave featuring half-acre homesites with spectacular lakefront views and forested settings.

To reach Cane Island, take the Cane Island Parkway exit off Interstate 10 minutes west of the Grand Parkway.  Head north on Cane Island Parkway one half mile to reach the community entrance.
