I'm not a big fan of chicken so have not tried it. I'm waiting for the fried ground beef taco shell :-)

So surprise toll has not sold out phase 1 homes in both alta vista and bella vista. 
compare to HC when it first released its phase 1 homes, they  were sold out before it was released. In fact, there was a priority list for early phases in HC...
goes to show how different  HC compares to OH..

In my opinion , a lot has to do w location and ease  of accessibility, especially given how crazy street traffic in Irvine is nowadays.  Otherwise it is a beautiful development with great floor plans.   I think we will have to wait a few months more to see how it shapes up. 

HC sold not just during the initial FCB wave of 2015 but also throughout last year when the more expensive and desirable lots came on the market.  Although recently there are many homes that are " green " and available there on the site plans.

A little more detail to the map above...

"District 4 will have walkable neighborhoods with sidewalks, Trails, Bicycle Lanes. There is a trail extending from District 1-North through the Upper Bee, along Benchmark that goes through the central park and on to the Warehouse area. Sidewalk provides access through the middle of District 4 and includes link to private parks. Pedestrian cut-throughs. The trails will connect students to the Beacon Park School and Portola H.S."

"An added feature to District 4 is the inclusion of Warehouse 415. Warehouse 415 is an existing structure that is intended for re-use for community event space, flex space, and a market hall similar to other redeveloped buildings throughout Southern California. Located in close proximity to Irvine Boulevard, the 39,150 sq. ft., single story building will include a 2,400 sq. ft. roof top deck. Proposes seven Quonset huts, a café, and bike hut on the Community Commercial site. The reuse of Warehouse 415 is a sustainable alternative to new construction. And the adding the Quonset huts is a nod to the military heritage of the overall development."

There are a few things different now vs 2 years ago. At the time when HC opened, Irvine has no brand new 4000-5000 sf luxury homes for sale in years. It created a buzz. There were a few Shady home owners buying in HC. Some of them are loaded. Also, many Asian buyers value IUSD more than TUSD. There were only 6 homes released at a time in HC vs 10+ homes in the first phase of Vistas.

Vistas is doing very well.

Could it be the cash restrictions by PROC since there's no cash flow restrictions when HC open but it has now, high end home tend to be more affected by this FCB cash crunch. 

I suspect HC also attracts more buyers from costal cities than OH but no data to back it up.

What does " fake news. " even mean - I am not providing any " news" here .  just stating my opinions, along side a few facts , and also mentioning where I could be wrong and where I hope I am wrong for the sake of the country.   Unlike you I am not parroting the language of my all-powerful "cult leader ".

I get it. So you are not spreading fake news as if you have proof of what you said, but you are making things up? Because the sources and links you provided are totally unrelated to what you said regarding the AG is going to suppress votes from young voters and majority of Floridians and people from the Midwest of 55+ voted Trump.

Anyways, your opinions cannot be taken seriously other than far-left entertainment. Tell you what, we have a President, it's not Hillary, so whining about who voted for Trump is a waste of time at this point. Making this country great is about creating good jobs, improving our economy, improving confidence of our future, securing our border, so our citizens and children are safe from crime and narcotics easily ship over from Mexico, implementing a better healthcare system for all, make ourselves strong again globally. The President is doing everything he said prior to being elected.

you realize in your rush to pass judgement , you are living up to every Trump voter stereotype ?  I listed voting data by county (to prove Newport Beach voted for Trump), I linked to a news article showing GOP tactics used in North Carolina for voter suppression (something  Sessions has himself said he wants to do), and I showed a recent Pew poll that shows older voters sticking with Trump despite all the batshit craziness he has shown so far.  But like other Trump cult members , you seem to ignore all that just to get to the schoolyard joy of calling someone else  " a far left liberal " .   "Loser " , "Sad " anything else you want to throw in there while you are at it :)

Its futile to have rational arguments dealing with Trump supporters and their personal insecurities (which they try to compensate for just like their messiah does) since they will stick with him to the very end. Even half of Nixon voters supported him to the day he left office.   

Not all Trump voters in Nov 2016 are Trump supporters now - and thats the zone that needs to be convinced to get this treasonous crew out of the White House now before they cause significant damage. 

"Making this country great is about creating good jobs, improving our economy, improving confidence of our future, securing our border, so our citizens and children are safe from crime and narcotics easily ship over from Mexico, implementing a better healthcare system for all, make ourselves strong again globally"


talking about evidence do you have any proof that the steps he has taken so far are achieving any of these goals ?  Or are you just copying and pasting your cult leader's talking points.

Buyers get penalized for delays on a per day basis, but the builder may delay closing without any buyer recourse. Doesn't seem fair, but the contract is written that way. This is especially true in a sellers market when they have a line of buyers who would purchase after the builder absorbs your deposit.

Mass immigration is wonderful. Only ignorant racists would oppose it.

Just out of curiosity, why are you concerned about riots in a Paris suburb? Are you equally bothered by the demonstrations in the US ghettos after a police shooting? Since you will probably never step foot in either place, why do you care what the Daily Mirror has to say?
