Ocean View Estates
A development of 78 luxury homes on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, by Capital Pacific Homes.
MDS Consulting provided planning, final design engineering and surveying for development of this rare and environmentally sensitive oceanfront site.
One of the many challenges during the design was to insure that the orientation and terracing of the homes would take full advantage of the panoramic ocean vistas from the site. While the minimum homesite is approximately one-half acre with sites as large as three quarters of an acre, the design of the project also preserves approximately seventy acres of open space including a bluff top ocean trail and park.
The project infrastructure includes two sewer lift stations and a bluff top storm drain installed by slant drilling methods and design by MDS. Water quality issues were also addressed in the Storm Water Management Plan prepared by MDS.
