area, which he attributed to the nearby U.S. Post Office.

Beaver assured him that prospective buyers would be forewarned.


The Pacific Standard project site is on the northeast portion of

the Home Ranch site, on the corner of Sunflower Avenue and Susan

Street. It lies alongside the administrative offices of the Auto Club

of Southern California. The gated community would consist of a mix in

townhomes and single-family homes, as well as two community parks, a

pool and a recreation center.

Other major components of the overall Home Ranch development

include an Ikea retail store, Emulex industrial headquarters and a

mix of campus-style office space.

The former lima bean farms, once cultivated and still owned by the

influential Segerstrom family, are bordered by Harbor Boulevard,

Sunflower Avenue, Fairview Road and the San Diego Freeway.
