The high demand for housing in Southern California has led to the development of most shoreline space in Orange County running from San Clemente to Seal Beach. Orange County builders have plans to develop most of what land is left aside from preserved open space.Approximately 75% percent of the Crystal Cove project by the Irvine Community Development Co. has been planned out. The development area, nested just above Crystal Cove State Park, is 9,290 acres and will contain about 2,600 homes. As builders continue to develop on scarce shoreline land, the demand becomes evident in the soaring prices of coastal residences. Homes in Crystal Cove that were initially sold for $900,000 are now fetching prices close to $2 million. Demands have changed and have brought urbanization to cities that may have been previously known as beach towns.
