The Meadows, Lake Forest by Toll Brothers
« on: January 21, 2021, 01:14:17 PM »
Website is up with Neighborhood Site Plan:
https://www.themeadowslakeforest.com/

This is where the old nursery was between Bake and Lake Forest.  Looks like 5 collections and all Toll Brothers.  Would guess small courtyard and motorcourt homes but no information on homes yet.

I'd guess that it'll be a mix of attached condos, detached condos, and single family homes.  It'll be interesting if Toll builds this whole thing out themselves or if they bring in another builder to build the attached condos.

I would invest out of state before I look at this.

Friend of mine represented the owner on this deal with Toll Bros.
Toll is currently talking with the usual guys shopping it around. Initially Toll was thinking being only builder here. Recently they closed a $200m deal in Montebello, and they are currently in early talks with me about a deal in inland empire. This lake forest development isn't huge especially compared to other stuff they have going on in the area but they are open to not doing it solo. You never know till the ink is dry on the paper.

This development will add value to Baker Ranch as an elementary school is in the stages of being planned by the local school district. No Mello-Roos is always appealing for Lake Forest, but this might impact the development of the school. Great location near the Lake Forest Sports Park.

Why is this? Or are you only talking about purchasing as an investment vs. a property to live in?

Probably just doesn’t know real estate very well. One of those always bearish on RE people.

I guess you can say I don’t know RE that well.
My first purchase was a foreclosure. My other purchase was in 2014.

Is an elementary school confirmed on the site?

Also interesting that the largest is 3600.  Baker Ranch toll brothers homes seem to be very popular wtih the exception of the super large 4000 sq ft ones.  Sounds like Toll Brothers found the sweet spot for families in this area.

Interested in seeing the plans. I like the location. I still can’t believe that nursery is going to be gone. I’m not used to seeing it any other way.

Sweet spot for home sizes seem to be 2,500sf to 3,500sf nowadays as people want more space.
