Great article, I always wondered how owning there worked.

was curious to find out more.

Yes, California Pacific Homes still exists.  It did not get absorbed by IP. Cal Pac helps Irvine Campus Housing Authority build these homes including using plans from Campanile, Camillia and Portisol. UCI does not have the know how to develop and build single family homes so by partnering with Cal Pac UCI benefitted greatly with creativity, land use and construction efficiency.

nice article...

Sorry, I have no liaison with Irvine Campus Housing Authority nor have anything to do with what got built.

That is because it looks just like a typical 2 car tract all over the planet.
