The construction has halted for time being as far as i can tell. Maybe if this belongs to Irvine Company they are focussing on finishing up Highlands by 2022 Q2. I am expecting some activity or announcement by 2021 Q4 or early 2022.
I don't know if IP can finish up Bluffs/Highland by 2022 Q2. Q3 is probably more likely. When I was talking to Bluffs consultant, she said that they have 13 phases remaining and they release once a month. I counted about 60 lots remaining and they release about 4 homes per phase, so that sounds about right.

I hope IP will have at least 2 communities there, so in case I can't get a Bluffs or Highland (plan 1) home, I can go for the new ones.

What is current price point for Bluffs and Highland? They started from ~1.2M range i think

In the last release:

Bluffs Res 1 - $1.346M
Bluffs Res 2X - $1.54M (view lot)

Highland Res 1 - $1.519M (small lot)
Highland Res 1 - $1.59M (bigger lot)
Highland Res 2 - $1.61M (non view lot)
Highland Res 2X - $1.71M (view lot)

They both should have new releases this week. Highland confirmed she's working on new releases right now. Haven't got confirmation from Bluffs yet.

This phase doesn't have view lots. In the previous phase, the 2X view lot was facing N-NW, looking across Portola Pkwy, I guess.

Most of the releases in highland are for view lots but are going to priority list people. Apparently, folks are waiting for over a year for those view lots!! I dont know but there is always something fishy going on with those builders priority list as they are not transparent to public. People with cash only buyers, extra commissions, etc, anything can work for desperate people to get into housing and lots these days.

You're right. I'm looking at the site map again and all of these are view lots.

There's a new release that the sales consultant is working on. Wonder which lots they are.

Builder's Priority List is same thing as VIP Guest List at the hot clubs or restaurants. :)

That's actually not the latest one. The latest ones are lots 10-13, which were released on 10/23.

Here are the latest price sheet from Highland.

Site map file size is too big, so I couldn't attach, but they're the 4 lots next to lot 14.

Highland and Bluffs are detached condos, not SFRs.  Rather wait for those SFRs to be built at Dreamcatcher, next to Highland park.

You're wrong. Highland are not detached condos. Highland are SFRs, "quasi" SFRs, but still SFRs.

If you're convinced by the Site Plan, which clearly states that Highland are Single Family Homes, you can even check City of Irvine GIS map.

Lol, SFR doesn’t allow you to park your car in front of your house in Highland. You also pay $250HOA, $100 more than SFRs were built at Ceremony….
