Sorry mythicquest. I never saw your original post. My thread is old news / double post. You beat be by 2 months!  :D
I started researching only after seeing construction by the SCE substation.

No worries. Curious how these will turn out!

I’m excited as well but this community will be too expensive for me. The extraordinary number of view lots will only be matched by the price.

So, most people do not care about the asphalt plant and potentially toxic fumes?

There is very little inventory. To the point where people are going out of their way to buy areas they normally wouldn’t. 2020 was the surge, 2021 was the beginning of FOMO, and now 2022 is the year of FOMO.

This is a health hazard. Potentially make you sick or developed some chronic conditions or even death. If I know there is a 70% chance I develop cancer, FOMO is not a factor.

I certainly understand your concerns but many Irvine buyers don't care about what they can't see. Time and time again, new and resale homes have proven this:
--Great Park / former superfund site
-- Portola Springs / proximity to landfill and fire danger
-- Woodbridge / TCE toxic plume
--Orchard Hills / asphalt plant and fire danger
--Cypress Village / proximity to the 5

If you're talking about a high visibility headstones / cemetery, that will certainly crater home sales.

VOC, together with other harmful substance in asphalt, will induce cancers (lung, leukemia etc.) quite rapidly with high possibility, especially by inhaling. It may only need just a couple years to show up.

I am interested to see whether there will be a study in the cancer rate in OH area in the next 5 years.

Fire burned down your house, rebuild. Toxic plume, don't grow fruits. Proximity to the freeway, houses all over the place are next to the freeway. None of these are as risky as living right next to the asphalt plant and breathing in those fumes everyday. But it maybe true, there are people who just want to fool themselves and still rush to buy.

VOC is not being released 24/7. If you have not smell asphalt before, I can tell you it's nasty and definitely hazardous if you exposed to it regularly.

They do care. People are not vocal enough.

I personally wouldn’t buy at GP because it was a superfund site. But actions speak louder than words. Thousands of people bought homes at GP.

You can protest all you want about the asphalt plant / air pollution (and I would support you). But TIC will have zero problems selling all 520 homes unless the economy crashes.
