Katy: 3,600-acre Elyson community to rise near Grand Pkwy.Katy: 3,600-acre Elyson community to rise near Grand Pkwy.https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=25102014-11-11T13:14:00Z2014-11-11T00:00:00Z

KATY - Newland Communities submitted plans to the City of Houston for Elyson, a 3,619-acre master-planned community near Beckendorff Rd. and the Grand Pkwy.

The community will consist of single-family homes, townhomes and commercial space. The first homes are expected to be built near Porter Rd. and Beckendorff Rd., according to city plat records.

Elyson residents will be zoned to either Katy Independent School District or Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. At least three Katy elementary schools and one Cy-Fair elementary school are planned for the community.

Bear Creek runs through Elyson, so plans call for several detention ponds and lakes in the community. Several dozen acres of land along the Grand Pkwy. are planned for commercial place and "future development," according to the plat records.

Elyson will join four other Newland communities in the Houston metropolitan region: Cinco Ranch in Katy, Telfair in Sugar Land, Summerwood in Houston and Eagle Springs in Humble.

Earlier this year, local investors snatched up 621 acres near Elyson for a new development, and Johnson Development announced plans to build a master-planned community on 1,300 acres at the intersection of the Grand Pkwy. and West Airport Blvd.
