The ones closest to the freeway will either be condos or apartments. It's a formula they have been using since Quail Hill... use the "riffraff" as a buffer.

I can say that because I am riffraff.

I was surprised TIC placed the rental apartments on such valuable property adjacent to the community park (sites 2 & 3). Anything along the 5 will have terrible noise and pollution issues. Those locations would have been better for rental apartments.

I think it will be interesting because Magnolia and Mulberry are similar in sqft and basic features and are priced similarly/sqft.  I guess if the "extra long driveways" were 25 feet long it would be a difference? I don't know if anything would make me want a motorcourt.  But I did a rough estimate and they're not getting that much, if any, additional units/acre for the motorcourt ones.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong- I measured it in Paint, haha.
I don't think they gain additional units, which is why pricing is similar... but they can get more footprint out of the homes in the 4-court cluster.

I think they are trying to sell Magnolia based on bigger interior square footage, whereas Mulberry is a more "traditional" SFR setup.

But I'm like you... why get the reduced privacy of a motorcourt set up... I didn't like it at Montecito (and they had driveways too) so I doubt I'll like it for Magnolia.

Yeah, looking at it I suppose in the 4-home cluster, half of them are Plan 3.  It's still very close though considering Mulberry Plan 1 can add on square footage (4th bedroom option) to make it larger than Magnolia Plan 1, and Mulberry Plan 2 is larger than Magnolia Plan 2.

I still see no reason, price/sqft being virtually equal, to choose the motorcourt.

If you look at Irvinepacific.com it has a big marketing piece about the California Court.  I mean it's better than not having a driveway, but why would someone choose it over the SFR?

Garden Hills at PS has the same set up, a 4-house court.    It is terrible.  It is very interesting to find out who purchased this type house with over $1mm

Seriously...Mulberry and Magnolia are starting at the mid-800s? Stonegate is a bargain compared to those prices.

I wouldn't...why would I want to get closer to the freeway (noise/pollution) and traffic?  Stonegate is much more set back and quieter.

because other people think it's too close to the landfill which I have yet to smell.  Or I guess they think there is enough waste and chemical stuff you'll get cancer or other health problems.

can you hear the traffic from trabuco? i would agree stonegate is quieter but if this part of Cypress Village is far enough from the 5 that i cant hear it, i would take that over stonegate.

Woodbury > Stonegate > Cypress Village

At least the Cypress homes offer better value and design than Branches. Still hopeful about The Great Park homes later this year.

I think with the buffer from the park and whatever they are building south of it, freeway noise won't be an issue for the Triple M Hoods.

I also prefer being closer to the freeway... just not right next to it (oh the irony).

I've read the Great Park homes are going to offer something "different".  To be perfectly honest I'd rather just have a 5,000 sqft lot, not many amenities past greenbelts and passive parks, and low or no mello/low hoa.

It's pretty far from the landfill and it's much better than the freeway.

Being next to the middle school is also interesting.

Minus
Stonegate -> Landfill, lack of amenities and the floor plans are rinse and repeat as there is only 1 home builder
Woodbury -> low income housing, schools with significant Hispanic population and poor API scores
Cypress Village -> even more low income housing, more apartments and adjacent to a busy free way.

Plus
Stonegate -> furtheres away from freeway, access to Irvine's top schools
Woodbury -> amenities second to Woodbridge, variety in home types, Woodbury Town Center
Cypress Village -> freeway access, California Court, California Garage and Super California Room
