Development Takes Live/Work To The Next Level
The Rancho Mission Viejo company incorporated live/work units into its suburban Ladera Ranch development as an experiment. Separated by firewalls, the office portions have display windows and a place to hang a shingle. A response to a nationwide work-from-home trend, the project presented a challenge to county building officials, who adapted to commercial building codes intended for much larger single-use structures. The county also adjusted its zoning law to create a "home-based business enclave" classification to accomodate these units.
