Why do you think OH3 will be in trouble?  Look the history of new Irvine homes.
1) GP is toxic > all neighborhoods still selling just fine
2) OH Groves has pesticide concerns > original neighborhoods all sold out
3) Cypress Village 3 is on the plume and too close to a power substation > selling quite well
4) PS has 3 story condos right next to the toll road > sold out

Don't worry young man, your investment in Irvine will be just fine.

This sounds a little different. You can actuallly see/smell the factory.  The other you mentioned are not visible. Out of sight out of mind (to some extent). Remember, people are very stupid, they will tolerate an environmental concern they can’t see, but not one they can because it is a daily reminder that they are slowly killing themselves.

Didn't some homes in The District have to have a disclaimer about planting fruit trees?  Where is that notice buried, no pun intended, on resale?

If IP and AAA cannot address OH3 residents' concern, OH3 sale will be in trouble.  If OH3 does not sell well due to impact of AAA, future OH4 will be affected as well.

I for one live in OH3 and have never smelled the asphalt after the day it was laid/cured.  IMO, OH3/OH4 will be fine.  I work in the real estate field and wouldn't hold my breath by hoping that AAA will be moving anytime soon; they're one of the best construction companies out there today, and likely not going anywhere.

Yes you can see it (if you want to drive up there) but no, you can't smell it.  Echoing what the OP just mentioned, that smell was exclusively the day they laid pavement and he hasn't smelled it since.

Was considering Alta/Bella Vista, any of this smell at Alta/Bella Vistas?

Bump on this post. Has the smell since dissipated? I’m interested in Vivo at the Reserve in OH. Thanks!

See my responses above.  I live in OH3, and these complaints are nothing but baseless WeChat rumors.

Residents of Eastwood village and OH3 started a petition to the city, and hopefully they can get 1000 signatures. The issue is real, not some "baseless WeChat rumor".

I can share that we went one time to one of the sales offices at OH3 I mentioned to the sale rep that I hear people complain about smell. she said she did not notice this but can see the steam from the site.

I doubted that Eastwood residents can smell the asphalt from Orchard Hills. So why are they signing the petition?

As a Eastwood resident, the smell is so strong, especially in the middle of night.
