The Community of Meridana in Manvel, Texas
Meridiana recently won the coveted Texas Star Award 2017 for Community of the Year largely based on its commitment to creating a one-of-a-kind, education-based community. Meridiana Elementary School (Alvin ISD) opened in 2016. Residents have a 30-minute drive to Dow Chemical, BASF, Freeport LNG and the Port of Freeport in lower Brazoria County. While the Texas Medical Center and Central Houston are approximately 20 miles north.
Meridiana is Houston’s first master-planned community with outdoor learning labs, created in collaboration with local educators. Students of all ages can study the
earth’s movement, the solar system, principles of gravity and velocity, wildlife habitats and more. In Galileo’s Lab, students study weather, water quality, the solar system, gravity and velocity. Two other learning labs in Meridiana’s Amenity Village, a sky map and the community’s signature 60-foot Meridian Tower, demonstrate the sun’s movement in relation to the earth. The sky map’s Solstice and Equinox lines track the sun’s movement. The Meridian Tower casts a spot of sunlight on the ground that moves as the Earth rotates.
Amenity Village has a Welcome Center, fitness center with children’s play area, family pool with cabanas, splash pad, poolside café and a shady, hillside amphitheater for movie nights. Activities include catch-and-release fishing, kayaking and a trail system to Meridian Elementary School.
Meridiana’s second phase features a new addition, Chesmar Homes on 60-foot homesites. The community’s second phase also showcases homes by David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Shea Homes, Taylor Morrison and Trendmaker Homes.
