IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 -- The charming architecture that will grace The Branches in the Village of Woodbridge and Willow Bend in University Park are now online -- a great way to get up-close with these brand new single-family detached home neighborhoods that will be conveniently located within two coveted Irvine communities. Visit www.lyonthebranches.com and www.lyonwillowbend.com today and enjoy a personal view of the different exterior styles available per floorplan at these highly anticipated William Lyon Homes addresses. Homebuyers are encouraged to take a first look now and get one step closer to their new Irvine home of a lifetime, one that will also offer the added benefit of no Mello Roos fees and low HOA dues.
"The architecture sets the tone for a new neighborhood and is an important factor for buyers who have a certain vision and expectation of their home's appearance and design," explained Lesley Pennington, Vice President of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "People who visit the individual websites will get a sneak peek at the exterior styles and gain a better sense of the neighborhoods' different architecture and even decide which one is their favorite. For instance, Willow Bend will showcase California Ranch and Craftsman exterior styles, while The Branches will offer Early Californian and Traditional architecture. While quaint window boxes and traditional shutters will be displayed in select floorplans, both Irvine neighborhoods will offer fresh color palettes as well as extensive windows to infuse beautiful interiors with soft natural lighting.
"As we move closer to the 2013 openings of The Branches and Willow Bend, prospective homebuyers should take advantage of the online information available to them. The artwork is a revealing look at the architectural influences at these Irvine neighborhoods and another exciting step for buyers who are eager to become more familiar with the different aspects of design that will soon be unveiled."
A limited opportunity of just 48 residences, The Branches will signify the first new home neighborhood in more than 15 years within the established Village of Woodbridge. This brand new Irvine address will be surrounded by meandering streets and nestled in a tranquil corner of North Lake adjacent to Fallbrook Park; a single entrance to emphasize a sense of privacy will greet homeowners. Three beautiful, two-story floorplans will range from approximately 2,209 to 2,542 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages. Prices are anticipated to start from the $900,000s.
Residents at The Branches will enjoy instant access to established recreation where they can play, stroll and socialize, including beach clubs, lagoons, tennis courts, parks and miles of trails. The newly improved Fallbrook Park and neighborhood schools within the top Irvine Unified School District are also within walking distance. Well-suited for busy homeowners who demand easy accessibility throughout Orange County, the neighborhood will showcase a premium location near business, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, as well as John Wayne Airport.
Willow Bend will debut an intimate enclave of just 58 residences, the only new home offering of this size to be built for 25 years in University Park, one of Irvine's most respected master planned communities. Three beautiful, two-story floorplans will range from approximately 2,209 to 2,556 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages. Prices are anticipated to start from the $900,000s.
Residents of Willow Bend will have fantastic recreational opportunities to delight every family member and access to the acclaimed Irvine Unified School District. Students will attend the highly ranked University High School, which was listed among the top 10 in Newsweek's ranking of the nation's Best High Schools in 2011. Willow Bend is also located near University of California, Irvine, an exceptional institution for higher learning. Residents will be within easy reach of William R. Mason Regional Park, a 345-acre natural sanctuary with its own nine-acre lake, biking paths, model boat sailing and wilderness hiking area. Nearby community parks have opportunities for soccer, tennis, sand volleyball and picnicking; golf enthusiasts can hit the links at nearby Rancho San Joaquin or Strawberry Farms Golf Clubs. Two nearby retail centers offer convenient shopping and Willow Bend will be just minutes away from the world-class boutiques of Fashion Island and Corona Del Mar, the 405 Freeway and Orange County's major business and leisure destinations.
The coveted Irvine settings of The Branches and Willow Bend will reinforce to future buyers the exceptional lifestyle they will experience as residents here -- the city of Irvine was ranked sixth by CNN Money as one of America's best small cities, with 44 miles of bike trails, 20,000 acres of parks and preserves, and a beach 10 miles away. CNN Money noted in a recent article that "Thanks to smart planning, this big city can feel surprisingly small. The 40-year-old community is divided into 40 'villages,' and a minimum of five acres of park space is added for every 1,000 newcomers."

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
