Irvine Real Estate / Re: Park Above Stonegate?
« Last post by iacrenter on Yesterday at 11:37:34 PM »
Gateway park is north of Portola, but the question might be what's actually on the north-west corner of the SG village map which has a big open space (south-east corner of Jeffrey/Potola). Driving by Encore I see tall walls surrounding it so doesn't look like they are going to build houses there. Anyone knows what's building there?

Intersection of Portola and Jeffrey;
NW Corner: Future phases of Orchard Hills and Eddison Substation
NE Corner: Future Gateway Sports Park
SW Corner: Future Eastwood Village (old name NW Paseo/Planning Area 5B)
SE Corner: Jeffrey Open Space Trail/Stone Gate

I ordered a birthday cake from Ralphs before that had whipped cream topping.  It tasted pretty good and the cost was reasonable.

There's nothing wrong with that.

Thanks!

Anyone know if there is a "wait" period before you can refi with Shea? I think I remember reading something in one of the forms I signed, but can't find it again...
I have heard some lenders want you to wait 6mo to refi if you're doing it with the same lender, but usually nothing stops you from a refi right after close, especially if it's with a different lender.

BUT, you will notice for many lenders a new purchase loan is 1/8% cheaper than a refi loan. So I would definitely go with the outside lender. 30 days is enough to close. As long as you are operating in good faith and keeping the builder informed on progress, i highly doubt they will fine you for a delay. And some of the large lenders will give you on-time closing guarantee and offer to pay any fees if there is a delay. Builder just wants to close, they don't care much who you use. They just like in-house because it gives them more visibility on what's happening with the buyer and easier to control the process.

City Hall / Update on the Crazy People

There's a thread about this somewhere here. Remember that whacko couple, both of them attorneys, who planted drugs into the Irvine classroom volunteer's car to frame her because they felt their precious little snowflake wasn't getting enough attention in school? The husband just got sentenced to 6 mos. behind bars.

Has anyone else but me actually eaten at the Cafe? So good.

Eaten at their cafe a few times and their sandwiches are just as good.  Pan con bistec sandwich is one of my all time favorite.  A slice of marinated steak, tomatoes, grilled onion, and string thin french fries they call potato sticks on Cuban bread, it's so good.

Shiver me timbers. It's an eyesore. They can - and should - have done better than that.
Suuure... if that was in Foothill Ranch it would be beautiful. :)

 ;) I think you know me better than that. If it was in F.R., you can bet I'd still say it's fugly... just like our Walmart parking lot.
