In honor of the season premier of The O.C., we turn our eye southward to see what's happening in the land of the Mouse. A 41-acre lifestyle community featuring high-rise condos, lofts, and shops, and imaginatively dubbed "A-Town", has been approved by the Anaheim City Planning Commission by a vote of 6-0, and will now go before the City Council for final approval.
A-Town, as the development is called, will be divided into seven architecturally unique districts, with six districts nestled together, bordered by Katella Avenue and Gene Autry Way. Plans for a 13.5-acre seventh district, at the corner of Orangewood Avenue and State College Boulevard, will be presented to the commission in the fall.
The Lennar development will be centrally located in the Platinum Triangle (a marketing term neatly used to describe where the 57, 22 and the 5 Freeway meet in a choking cloud of car exhaust). Construction is slated to begin this year with homes available for sale by late 2006.
