Developer Plans to Close 216 Homes, Acquire More Properties for Build-Out in 2016

IRVINE, Calif. – Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California, sold 40 homes, opened three new communities and broke ground on 11 additional communities in Southern California in 2015. The homebuilder, who recently ranked number 17 on the Orange County Business Journal’s Homebuilder List based on home sales in 2014, aims to close about 216 homes throughout Orange and Los Angeles counties in 2016.

“2015 was a transition year for us with 40 closings, but it was a banner year for acquisitions and our pipeline has grown significantly,” said Dave Barisic, vice president of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes. “We are continuing to look for and acquire land for build-out in 2017 and beyond.”

In 2015, Brandywine opened Seabright, 26 townhomes in Costa Mesa; Covington, a 51-unit community in Yorba Linda; and Brighton, 60 single-family homes in unincorporated West Carson near Torrance. Brandywine also broke ground at Citrine, a 16 townhome community in Norwalk; Sunstone, 31 townhomes in Norwalk; Lakehouse, with 20 single-family homes in Anaheim; Lotus Court, 13 townhome community in Monrovia; Provence, 28 single-family homes in Yorba Linda; Griffin, a 17 townhome community in Arcadia; Newbury, 15 estate residences in Yorba Linda; and entitled Candlewood, a 53 townhome community in Whittier.

“Overall, 2015 was a solid year for new home sales in both Orange County and Los Angeles,” Barisic said. “And with 17 new sales in January of 2016 alone, we are excited for what this year has in store.”

Entitlement Battles: The Irvine Company

March 20th, 2012

This post is part of a series on how good public relations can help businesses make a name for themselves, promote their products & services, land speaking engagements for executives, influence public opinion or handle crisis situations.

Challenge: Anton Communications has been a consultant for The Irvine Company since 2000, working on entitlement and new community projects that include Turtle Rock, Shady Canyon, East Orange and the Northern Sphere near the Saddleback Mountains. New developments of this size are often difficult to entitle in California and require strong community support.

Action: We have assisted with community surveys and focus groups, participated in strategy meetings, organized supporters and speakers at local hearings and provided written copy for several publications designed to share information about the planned communities.

Results: All of these projects were ultimately approved with strong community support and sales have been brisk even in the most recent neighborhoods that opened during a downturn in the housing market nationwide.
