For today's post, we take a look at an already under construction infill residential mixed-use project near the Laguna Hills Mall located in the City of Laguna Hills. The project is known as the Reata At Oakbrook Village and is located right next to the Oakbrook Village Shopping Center which has a Trader Joe's and an El Torito. The mixed use development will have a total of 289 rental units. The mixed user is located about 10 minutes (walking) from the Laguna Hills Mall. According to the OC Register, the mall will under-go major renovations and be renamed as Five Lagunas. Pending City's approval, if the City approves the plan, work could begin sometime in 2016 and plans for opening their doors in 2017 (Source). Also the Laguna Hills Transportation Center is within walking distance. The transit center is located at the intersection of Calle De Los Caballeros & Paseo De Valencia. When the OC Fair is back, it is possible to take the OC Fair Express at the transit center. This express service, provided by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), is a direct service from the transit center to the OC Fair in Costa Mesa. The benefit of taking the OC Fair express pertains to avoiding the parking cost, receiving a $3 admission coupon to the fair upon boarding the express bus, and best of all, avoiding traffic hassles (Source and for more info such as fare cost and days of operation, and schedules).
