Planning Area 1: Progress Photo

Last week, Rancho Mission Viejo Company has tantalized us with a detailed graphic representing the new Village of Sendero and some of its planned amenities.  We mentioned that in this post, and you can see the graphic here.  A few weeks ago, we were up on the Ladera Ranch Trail and we took a few high-res photos of the construction site.  We’ve stitched three images together and annotated them with what we can see in the Sendero graphic so you can see how it might lay out in real life.  The image below is a small thumbnail.  The full sized version is here.  A full sized un-annotated image is available here.
