MANVEL and IOWA COLONY, BRAZORIA COUNTY - Meridiana, a 2,700-acre master-planned community has broken ground. The community will be near the interchange of SH 288 and Hwy. 6 in Manvel and Iowa Colony.

Meridiana will include 5,500 single-family homes, and model homes are expected to open in the fall.

With its Texas 288 location, Meridiana is expected to attract workers from the Texas Medical Center as well as those at large, nearby employers in Freeport including Dow Chemical, BASF and others.

Meridiana also will include a new on-site elementary school, which is expected to open for the 2016-2017 school year and will be part of the Alvin Independent School District.

Rise Communities LLC is the developer of the community. “With Meridiana, we are making a bold commitment to education with learning and discovery experiences for all stages in life, from young children to active adults," said Rise President Dan Naef.

Rise plans to announce home builders in June. However, California-based Shea Homes has identified Meridiana as one of the communities in which it will build.

Shea Homes, which has just entered the Houston market, also will build homes in Cane Island, another one of Rise’s master-planned communities. See previous story Katy Raising Cane Island with 2,000 homes.
