Comparatively living next to freeways is paradise for FCBs from Shanghai or Beijing.

Air by the fwy 5 is super clean when one could see headlight or the sun.

Does this mean Beijing or Shanghai babies are screwed?  The air pollution in those cities are off the charts.

Did a quick drive by the neighborhood today. It looks like the model homes are situated furthest away from the freeway (obviously); however, the phase 1 construction looks like it's closest to the freeway. Seems like they plan on building the phases from the freeway inward, instead of furthest first and then build out towards the freeway.

See red outline in general map attached.

They always seem to build the models furthest away from the freeway first (caserta too).  Then build the phases closest to the freeways in the first phases to get the suckers in.  Great plan, I would do the same if I was the marketer. 

*next*

well, the further the distance justifies overpaying paying higher prices in the future phases.

In that case, it seems like IP marketer > CalPac marketer  ;)

The Jade development is starting from closest to the models and building towards the freeway.

If air pollution really does affect newborn babies with more autism, we should see a spike in autism now in Beijing/Shanghai relative to 5 yrs back.  The teens today would not be affected.

I'm pretty sure it's the exact same plan, but not sure where the 3-6 sq feet difference (if in fact there is) is made in plan 1 and 2. They just moved the pantry cabinets around, added linen cabinets in the laundry room (thus requiring a stacked W/D).

I recall on the original plan that I saw somewhere - Jasmine was named San Mateo.

Hi all.  Newbie here so bear with this first post of mine.  :)

My wife and I have been shopping around CV for the past couple months now, and recently have been working with the WF mortgage consultant for CPH on the Caserta neighborhood right next to Jasmine.  Fairly spacious townhomes for the price IMO, especially compared to some of the other CV neighborhoods for $/sq ft.  Granted, Caserta are attached townhomes and not detached SFR's.

In any case, the mortgage consultant mentioned to us just this morning that her associate is working Jasmine, and the anticipated purchase price is going to be above $700,000.  I'm sure some of you may have already known or anticipated this, but thought I would share for the rest of us.

It was certainly news to my wife and I as I'd thought (or at least *hoped*) the prices would stay under $700,000--in the high $600,000's--as originally advertised.  Perhaps that was only to be the case with the starting price, say for the Plan 1, with the other Plans 2 & 3 easily creeping above and well into the $700's.  I've certainly seen this happening all throughout the CPH and IP neighborhoods in CV, so I know I really shouldn't be surprised here.

Nonetheless, it's a bit of a bummer as we were hoping to move before the baby in July.  We've literally been driving through CV nearly every Sat/Sun since the new year.

Cheers

Might as well buy Marigold.
