Nothing Quiet on the Orange County Front

Although January and February are typically known as the “slower” months in the real estate world, homebuilding activity in Orange County is off to a roaring start in 2012!  See what’s making the news here locally:

  1. Trumark Homes and Brookfield Homes are proposing to revitalize a Lake Forest auto mall with 75 single family homes and 151 condos – the properties are located around Auto Centre Drive.
  2. Sales continue to move product within Shea Homes & Standard Pacific’s new Blackstone master plan in Brea. Also, Jamboree Housing recently opened its 94-unit affordable Bonterra apartments within the community.

Rockin’ Out in the OC

  • The City of Irvine approved 5,000 homes at FivePoint Communities’ Great Park Neighborhoods (See OC Register graphic :: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/park-316992-fivepoint-great.html?graphics)
  • A buyer was selected for Pacific City in Huntington Beach; the note sale is rumored to have transacted at north of $55M
  • It’s the end of a water park era: Wild Rivers shuts down this coming Sunday, September 25th to make way for yet another Irvine Company apartment project called Los Olivos, which will bring 1,750 additional units to the Irvine Spectrum area.  Not to worry, though, the Verizon Amphitheater will still be rockin’ until 2017.  http://www.ocregister.com/articles/irvine-318601-noise-units.html
