If you enter the amenity village at the new Houston-area master-planned community Cane Island, you’ll be greeted by the community’s resident ambassador, Hub. Hub’s main job is to welcome new or prospective buyers to the neighborhood. Hub is a golden retriever, by the way.
Besides the resident canine, Cane Island’s amenity center encompasses six structures and includes a two-story fitness center, a yoga studio with on-demand instructional videos, a café, and a treehouse with observation deck and fireplace. There’s also a glass-enclosed greenhouse conservatory on the property that’s used for community gatherings.
Not content to keep amenities to designated area, there’s also an “amenity van”—a Ford 650 pickup truck that pulls a 44-foot-long trailer outfitted with AV equipment—used for concerts and movies on the community’s event long. (The van cost $2 million.)
The 1,100-acre Cane Island opened in 2016, and homes here run from the $200,000s to $2.5 million. At full build-out the community will include 2,000 homes.
