Pacifica San Juan

| San Juan Capistrano, California

The Last of the Gold Coast.

In 2013, Lehman Brothers Holdings hired Pacific Ventures as the master developer to resolve all outstanding entitlement, development and financial obligations and manage the development and build-out of this former SunCal project. With the run-up in value for ready-to-go residential building parcels, it became clear that the best outcome for the property’s owner was a bulk sale of the entire property. It soon also became clear who would be the best buyer: us. We knew this community had great potential, so we assumed the role of master developer and brought in joint venture partners Oaktree Capital Management and Taylor Morrison to join with us to fulfill the vision of this extraordinary place.

“Creating great communities is just part of our story — admittedly, the most visible part. But behind this are other, equally vital parts – such as our ability to create great partnerships. By working closely with best-in-class companies such as Taylor Morrison and Oaktree Capital, we are able to approach any transaction with depth, flexibility and credibility. It’s a highly effective combination.”
