New community off Grand Parkway to break ground on first homes

Builders are expected in June to break ground on the first homes in Elyson, a new master-planned community in Katy.

Newland Communities has selected eight homebuilders for the first phase of the 3,642-acre community, located near the Grand Parkway and FM 529, west of Houston.

The eight homebuilders are: Chesmar Homes, Darling Homes, David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Pulte Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Westin Homes.

The first phase of Elyson will feature 337 homes sitting on 50-, 55-, 60-, 65- and 70-foot lots.  Preliminary plans for Elyson – revealed just as oil prices plunged in fall 2014 –  called for double the number of homes in the first phase: as much as 800 homes.

Exact home specifications, floor plans and prices have yet to be released, but will likely be a mix of traditional and patio-style homes priced from the high $200,000s to more than $600,000. Townhomes, twin villas and multifamily projects are planned for later phases in Elyson.

The homebuilders will begin construction on 10 model homes, which will be located next to Rorick House, Elyson’s recreational amenity and new-home information center. The model home section and amenity center will be completed in time for Elyson’s grand opening, planned for this fall.

Elyson will eventually feature 6,300 single-family homes and more than 750 acres of parks, trails, recreation centers, waterways and green space.

Elyson is Newland Communities’ next major master-planned community in the Houston region. Cinco Ranch, Newland’s 8,100-acre community in Katy, is expected to be built out by 2018.

Elyson is owned in a joint venture between Newland Communities LLC and North America Sekisui House Ltd. (NASH). Newland Communities, a San Diego-based developer, is the largest private residential developer in the U.S. with more than 40 communities under development in 14 states. NASH is the U.S. subsidiary of Sekisui House Ltd., the largest homebuilder and developer in Japan.
