Following a year of work reviving the previously stalled Pacifica San Juan development, homebuilder Taylor Morrison is unveiling four new model homes and launching residential sales in two Pacifica neighborhoods this Saturday, Aug. 27. The grand opening marks the first model homes to debut in nearly a decade.

From atop a bluff, Pacifica San Juan overlooks San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point and the Pacific Ocean. The 416-unit development was previously owned by Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., which began development in the early 2000s, but only completed 98 of the planned homes before the recession hit, leaving the company bankrupt. Taylor Morrison purchased the community in the spring of 2015 and is set to complete the remaining 318 luxury homes.

During the grand opening this weekend, visitors can tour four model homes in Pacifica’s Belle Haven and Blue Harbor neighborhoods. Belle Haven will have 39 residences priced in the low $1 million range, and Blue Harbor will have 23 homes in the same price range.
