Newland Communities recently announced the eight home builders for their new 3,642-acre community, Elyson: Chesmar, Darling, David Weekley, Highland, Perry, Pulte, Trendmaker and Westin are building in the first phase of Elyson. The eight builders have begun construction of 10 model homes that will be featured in the community's Model Home Village this fall.

Homes in the development will range in price from the mid-$200,000s to $600,000s, with plans for over 6,000 single family homes. Per the Houston Chronicle, amenities are also planned, with the first major amenity, Rorick House, opening this fall:

Rorick House also will include the official home buyer welcome center for Elyson. It will also have a cafe, Rorick Kitchen, which will serve pizzas, salads, smoothies, and other fare to visitors and residents.

Another amenity will be community orchards where residents can pick pecans and citrus fruit.
