Good Planning Goes a Long Way
More than 60 years of highly praised, large-scale master planning, design and building are imbedded in our company DNA, and informs and guides all that we do.
We planned and developed, from scratch, the City of Irvine, a California town of nearly 250,000 residents that is world renowned today for its charming neighborhood villages, vibrant work communities, top-ranked schools and lowest crime rate of any large American city.
Our comprehensive planning and long-term ownership philosophy translate into timeless designs, exceptional quality, continued reinvestment, sustainability, thoughtful stewardship, and community engagement. We care for all the land—both which is developed and that which is conserved.
On 93,000-acre Irvine Ranch, we’ve permanently preserved more than 60% of the land, creating a biologically and geologically diverse, 22-mile swath of open space in Orange County, Calif. that stretches from the Cleveland National Forest to the Pacific Ocean.
Our commitment to the environment also extends to our sustainable work/live/play mixed-use communities; industry-leading water conservation efforts; the world’s first fleet of hybrid-electric buildings; Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)-certified buildings (first in California with more than 60 office buildings); and a No. 1 ranking nationwide by the Environmental Protection Agency for energy-efficient buildings.
Through careful planning and a long-term commitment, we create sustainable living, working and shopping environments that allow residents, customers and businesses to flourish.
