On September 27th, 2007, I visited and wrote about the Great Park for the first time. I was excited for the promise of the park and what it would bring, though I had some doubts. Six years later (my how time flys), I am not disappointed. There are some photos I shot around the base a few months later in October 2007 (you can see the post here; then it was a baked & cracked place where the scrub was quickly reclaiming the base bit by bit.
The planned residential areas on the Great Park property are being billed as the “Great Park Neighborhoods”; while I think that is a sensible choice, this is bound to get confusing over time as people reference the Great Park proper which is a separate entity… no matter, it’ll all get sorted by the right people.
This post is about the first Great Park Neighborhood – Pavilion Park. I wanted to show our readers a couple of facets of the Pavilion Park development. I’m going to do this post in 2 or 3 parts; haven’t decided yet… the first bit will be a quick look at some of the development in its raw phase, then a quick look at some model homes and then into the community facilities.
There is a grey fence that surrounds the construction areas and I can’t decide if it is a permanent fence or temporary. It has staying power graphically – hard charcoal surface set against big skies, rough stone and shrubbery – it works. If it is temporary, kudos to Five Point Communities for the sharp window dressing.
To be continued.
