Rancho Mission Viejo
A new ranch community
The new ranch community of Rancho Mission Viejo is comprised of approximately 17,000 acres of permanent open space to be preserved as The Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo as well as approximately 6,000 acres to be developed over time into multiple mixed-use and inter-generational residential villages. These villages on The Ranch will be designed with regard to both individual land form and a set of rigorous planning principles, which include the following:
- honor The Ranch’s heritage as a working ranch and The Ranch family’s commitment to open space preservation,
- integrate residents living on The Ranch in every life stage throughout the community via programs which promote true Ranch-style hospitality and elevate the Agrihood (TM) ,
- connect neighborhoods with parks and trails which link to both regional open space and portions of The Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo, and
- offer residents the opportunity to live within scenic South Orange County where retail, employment and other essential services are close by and thousands of acres of national forest and wilderness parks are just around the corner.
Collectively, over the next two decades, Rancho Mission Viejo is expected to offer up to 14,000 homes (including up to 6,000 primarily single-story homes for people age 55-plus) and nearly 5 million square feet of non-residential uses. In addition, sites for schools, parks and recreational facilities, community farms, shopping and employment centers will be provided as well as an inter-connected system of arterial roadways and hiking/biking pathways carefully integrated regional trails networks and even some of The Ranch’s agrarian spaces and natural habitat.
The new ranch community of Rancho Mission Viejo is a development partnership between Rancho Mission Viejo, LLC (managing partner) and DMB Associates, an Arizona-based diversified real estate company with commercial property holdings throughout Arizona, California, Hawaii and Utah.
