Beacon Park at Great Park Neighborhoods is the second new neighborhood being developed on a decommissioned naval air base in Irvine, Calif., and the first to be directly linked with a neighboring 1,347-acre park, the largest municipal park in Orange County.
Residents of the development will find themselves living in close proximity to a new K-8 school campus, as well as a new high school, work centers, shopping and dining centers, and public transportation that will all be linked to the neighborhood via a pedestrian/bike crossing that extends over a major thoroughfare.
The development’s 1,029 total units will be situated in 15 groupings of detached homes peppered with condos, townhomes, and flats.
The neighborhood is designed to be walkable and pedestrian-friendly, as demonstrated by its tree-lined parkways and numerous cul-de-sacs, roundabouts, and short interior streets. The development will also take full advantage of an expansive community park, which will act as a central green and will include a multifunctional community center, tree house, and children’s adventure area.
Beacon Park is home to multigenerational families, in addition to well-educated singles, couples, and families of varied incomes and professions.
