THE STORY

Part of an 18-year old Specific Plan that stood dormant through housing’s recession, this plan re-ignites a high profile segment of historic Tustin Fields. Revitalizing 2 major parcels with 4 product lines, it won a City-sponsored bid for highest/best use.
 

  • Fresh concepts reconfigure City’s preliminary plan for a one-way road to an oblong park. A new, two-way entry leads directly to this public amenity, which is expanded and features private recreational facilities for homeowners.

  • Most homes benefit from direct adjacencies or views to the park, or to the connecting linear bio-swale.

  • Traversing the site and linked to project wide-walking trail, the bio-swale softens density and supports City commitment to pedestrian connectivity. Small retailers, dining, theaters, and food markets are walking distance; major shopping and airport are within minutes by car.

  • Rear-loaded homes integrate with garage-forward lines, enhancing streetscape vitality. Widely varied footprints, plan sizes and designs for 4 new home lines address equally varied buyer demographics, and generate open, friendly and interactive architecture.

  • Particular thought to courtyards, patios, traditional yards and deeper setbacks of edge conditions further enlivens the plan and promotes an inward orientation that strengthens neighborhood identity.
