Base camp? Great Park - Any idea?
« on: February 05, 2017, 08:59:41 AM »
Does anyone here have an idea when the Base camp retail center is going up in Greatpark? There are thousands of houses built or being built but no grocery stores or pharmacy and gas station. Will there be any around there?

Anytime lines or plans that are public anywhere that would give us more info?

I was at some of the Parasol Park models last weekend and asked, specifically, about this.  It looks like they are going to curve Great Park Blvd and include some shopping/retail for the GP community.  The retailers will be facing the neighborhood so if you're on Great Park Blvd, you'll be facing the back of the retailers.  From the sounds of it, it's going to be pretty awesome and should be completed by 2018.

The section of land at the great park Blvd and ridge valley intersection (site of proposed retail) is now being cleared...so construction. may begin anytime soon. Wondering what retail will come up at that space. Will be helpful to have a pharmacy or a small grocery in there.

According to the City Planning's doc, the Base Camp (District 1-South): "73 acres for multi-use, medical and science, and community commercial purposes."

The fist pic is an old map of GP development show where this Base Camp is located.  The attached pic is a more recent map from a city meeting in January 2016 and we can see the layout of this Base Camp more clearly.

These base camp descriptions from FivePoint look very promising.  Hope these artist rendering and design elements come through.

THE BASE
The Base is envisioned to incorporate the best of a European style village with alleyways, restaurants, rooftop entertainment, retail and more. With a location adjacent to the Orange County Great Park Sports Park, this vibrant retail district is being designed to serve residents and sports park users as well as the greater Orange County population.

Wow. Looks great! I also hope it's as nice and charming as the artist renderings. I do want a some type of grocery store or market place to buy veggies and meats.

Totally agree, need more grocery stores and not random eclectic boutique retailers that results in high turnover.

Need to build more than just this one if the next couple of GP neighborhoods are being built

Between Base Camp and Warehouse 415, we should have some great options for food and retail! I'm really looking forward to it!

Based on the demographics, you might get another 99 Ranch, Zion, HMart or Wholesome Choice. :)

How about a food hall?

From OCR article linked in this old thread: http://www.talkirvine.com/index.php/topic,14431.msg290829.html#msg290829

Base Camp

FivePoint’s first commercial district will be located just south of Parasol Park.

Trabuco Road will be rerouted to curve through the 72-acre development with stores and businesses on both sides of the road.

Plans call for two hotels, two office buildings, stores and restaurants, including a food hall similar to the Anaheim Packing House. It is expected to serve residents and patrons from the adjacent Sports Park.
