Looks like somebody bought the house with the huge lot in the T intersection:
https://www.redfin.com/CA/Irvine/161-Cloudbreak-92618/home/66194552

Knew it wouldn't last long, 10k lot in a new build doesn't come up too often.
I wonder if an FCB bought it.

If Cash transactions taken place, how can one find out about purchased price?

Does anyone have a phasing plan map? Which streets have views?

A phasing map would be helpful.  Bountiful and Wild Horse will have some views - apparently they'll be released after remainder of Coppermine is released.

I have a phase map but I couldn't figure out how to post photo in this forum...

Try clicking Attachments and other options at the bottom of the text box?

Lasted pretty long considering they had to put it up on redfin and the house is pretty much finished. But it was a good week for T homes in PP. That harmony T home on prospect also went pending.

The main issue I see is the Gap between inner city/non performing schools and performing schools.

I think it's a teacher/school training issue.

Let's put it this way... the U.S. is way behind in education.
Math, to me, has always been easy, and considering the pace of other countries, this is how fast the U.S. should be going with math:
7th Grade: Algebra I/Geometry
8th Grade: Algebra II/Precalculus
9th Grade: AP* Calculus-BC (my kid was able to self-study this in two weeks)
10th Grade: Multivariable, Linear Algebra, and Differentials
11th Grade: Abstract Algebra, Real and Complex Analysis
My kid actually experienced 1 year of Common Core in Algebra II before we transferred to another district (not because of CC). Common Core introduced topics in Precalculus early, so that was nice. However, our old district had no textbooks for CC since my kid's school year were guinea pigs. Instead, they used workbooks.
I have nothing bad to say about CC, but both traditional and CC math cover topics from past years too much and need to accelerate. At the school my kid currently goes to, nearly every single 9th grader is taking Algebra II, numerous are taking Precalculus, and some are taking Multivariable/Linear Algebra/Differentials!

On the other hand, Integrated Math has some good and bad things. The only good thing is that you aren't going back and forth between algebra and geometry. The bad things have already been mentioned. I have no faith in Integrated Math.

And honestly, no matter how hard that Algebra placement test could have been last year, check out the AMC 8 and it'll make the test look like a piece of cake.

Does your kid go to a magnet school?

Physician couples can afford HC in their 30s. You just need them to be in a subspecialty (prob surgical). If they both make, let's say, $500k a year, then HC is no problem.

Who in their right mind will pay top dollar for the property and high taxes to go to the assigned schools @ Greenwood?
