Cane Island

Cane Island

Cane Island is an amenity-rich master planned community in the City of Katy, Texas that sprawls over 1,000 acres on the city’s west end.  It has the distinction of being the very first master planned community within the city’s boundaries, and when complete will boast over 2,000 new homes and families.  Named after the 1872 settlement which later became Katy, the Cane Island community is directly accessible from Interstate 10 and the the Cane Island Parkway interchange, right next to the new Buc-ee’s.

Developed by Rise Communities, Cane Island is located mere minutes from the Katy Mills Mall and Boardwalk, La Centerra in Cinco Ranch, the Energy Corridor, and the Medical Center West Campus.  Families in Cane Island attend highly acclaimed Katy ISD schools, which are currently zoned to Katy Elementary, Katy Junior High, and Katy High School.


Cane Island’s heavily forested, half-mile arrival experience features a three-acre lake alive with fountains (which are colored red on Katy football game nights) as well as an occasional view of elk, buffalo and deer on the adjacent properties.  You’re sure to enjoy the one-of-a-kind living archways – two impressive tunnels made of evergreens and seasonal color stretching over Cane Island Parkway.

Homebuyers looking to Cane Island for their new homes will have no shortage of prestigious homebuilders to choose from.  Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes, Ryland Homes, Shea Homes, Toll Brothers and Trendmaker Homes all have beautiful offerings from which to choose.  Both traditional family homes and luxury patio homes, as well as lakefront lots are available throughout the community.  Three of the seen neighborhoods will be gated.

Cane Island’s masterful amenity village is built out over four acres and features an outdoor amphitheater shaded by rescued 75-year-old oak trees.  Residents also have unlimited use of a family pool with adjacent splash pad, an adult pool, a fully-equipped two story fitness center, a yoga studio, and a multi-purpose room with a commercial kitchen.  Among it’s most unique features are the glass walled, heavily planted conservatory, which is ideal for exhibits, lectures, private events or just a special place to relax.  Residents also enjoy two spaces tree houses with decks offering elevated views of the amphitheater!
