Urban Redevelopment Calls For Drought Tolerant Landscaping

August 31st, 2015

Drought around the world is causing serious damage to existing resources, and threatening the extinction of many others. In Brazil, the current drought situation is the worst in 50 years, and that country’s largest city, Sao Paolo, is now running on emergency reserves and rationing water usage. Brazil does not have any man-made infrastructure to respond adequately to the drought – the reservoir water is often polluted, which contaminated city water in rainy conditions.

In the US, drought conditions have been alleviated in Texas, where they recently received sufficient rain (well, floods) to recover from a four-year droughtCentral and eastern states have no “extreme” or “exceptional” drought conditions, and only a few “severe” drought conditions in Florida and the southern states.

Brandywine Homes will begin constructing model homes this month at Brighton, a fully entitled 4.46-acre community with 60 single-family detached homes in unincorporated West Carson, just east of Torrance in southwestern Los Angeles County.

“We are very excited that the models at Brighton will be under way this month,” said Dave Barisic, vice president of sales and marketing for Brandywine. “We haven’t seen such strong interest in a new home development in a long time. I chalk this up to its fantastic central location, the abundance of jobs in the South Bay and the long-time lack of new homes in the Torrance area. The pent-up demand is proving to be huge.” Read More >

CARSON, Calif. – August 24, 2015– Brandywine Homes will begin constructing model homes this month at Brighton, a fully entitled 4.46-acre community with 60 single-family detached homes in unincorporated West Carson, just east of Torrance in southwestern Los Angeles County.
“We are very excited that the models at Brighton will be under way this month,” said Dave Barisic, vice president of sales and marketing for Brandywine. “We haven’t seen such strong interest in a new home development in a long time. I chalk this up to its fantastic central location, the abundance of jobs in the South Bay and the long-time lack of new homes in the Torrance area. The pent-up demand is proving to be huge.”
Torrance and other nearby communities have an established population approaching 1 million, but the area’s housing stock is aging and new communities are limited to small infill developments. The South Bay’s diverse employment base extends into petrochemical, aeronautics, avionics, education, healthcare and international shipping and trade. This market also serves as a residential area for downtown Los Angeles.
Brighton will offer three and four bedrooms ranging from 1,564 to 1,966 square feet, designed to appeal to young singles and couples, growing families and established families with children, and empty nesters. Prices are expected to start in the $500,000s.
With its proximity to Interstate 405, the 110 Freeway and the Pacific Coast Highway, Brighton will be within easy commuting distance to 3.1 million jobs, the Los Angeles International Airport and downtown Los Angeles, near excellent schools and shopping and within a mile and a half of 10 public parks.

According to the National Association of Home Builders’ formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 60 single-family homes will generate $12.7 million in local income, $1.3 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 194 local jobs.

Finding New Housing that’s Pet-Friendly

August 24th, 2015

Fido and Kitty have been in your life since before the kids were born so everybody considers them members of your family. As such, their needs enter into your new housing purchase, even if all they can do is bark or meow their approval.

Scope out the yard

It’s not news to you that cats and dogs need space to run around. But we’ll be the first to admit that while the backyards of most developments provide enough room for you, your family, and your toy poodle, the spaces may prove confining for larger breeds. The size of your yard may be irrelevant in the end, because most developments have parks and paths inside the community, or nearby. At Covington in Yorba Linda, for example, you can access the Fullerton Pooch Park, which offers the wide open spaces in which your furry friend can run free.  Read More >
