2 gates but only 1 has a guard.  What's the use?  Everyone who can't get in the guarded gate will just wait to tailgate their way in at the non-guarded gate.

There are ways to prevent people from tailgating into a gated community. Swinging arms could be installed to allow only one car per arm-raise.

This isn't anything new. Several high-end communities already employ this method. Some that come to mind include Turtle Rock Summit, Lambert Ranch, Harbor Ridge in Newport Beach, and Pacific Ridge in Newport Coast (Fiano). The only thing that I find slightly odd in Altair's scenario is that the secondary non-guard-gated entrance is also off Irvine Blvd; the un-manned gates usually tend to be off a smaller, lower-traffic street. Because both entrances are on Irvine Blvd, both entrances really should be manned, even if one of the gates remain manned for a select number of hours while the other remains manned for 24 hours (a method employed at Turtle Ridge).

These homes are going to have very nice views and low density.

It'll have a prime view of the cemetery.

I agree.. what's the point? 

Swinging arm gates won't prevent it  either.. people still will trail

Swinging arms will prevent it, unless you want to damage your car or break the arms. If they're smart, they'll have video set up to fine the perpetrators. Yes, someone wants to get in, they'll get in no matter what the security is.

We could totally make a whole rap...

Innnnnn West Irvine, born and raised
At the Spectrum, was where I spent most of my days
Chillin out maxin, Laguna Altura
Drinkin some boba outside of the school
When a couple FCB's, that were up to no good
Started makin trouble in my Irvine hood
I got in one little street race and my mom got scared
She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Altair'

<I digress>

Wow, a lot of very large homes here.  Also a good amount of descent lots if you look around the perimeter of the community.  I think this neighborhood will be very nice, but it will have to be since the only leg up it will have on Baker Ranch is the school district.

Proximity wise I think this might be closer to the jail than Baker Ranch (or a very close second).  Most likely to get to the 5 you'll be going down Alton instead of Sand Canyon.

I would bet the developers are considering going no Mello Roos here but time will tell.
