The Irvine Ranch
Located in the heart of Orange County, The Irvine Ranch® is less than an hour south of Los Angeles and about 90 minutes north of San Diego.
The 93,000-acre Irvine Ranch stretches nine miles along the Pacific coast, 22 miles inland and encompasses more than one-fifth of Orange County's total 798 square miles. Within its boundaries lie the city of Irvine and parts of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Tustin, Orange and Anaheim, plus unincorporated county land and small portions of Santa Ana and Costa Mesa.
The Irvine Ranch has been under private ownership for nearly 150 years and is considered one of the largest and most successful master-planned urban environments in the United States. It is home to approximately 280,000 people and about that many people work here, too.
The preparation and implementation of The Irvine Ranch® Master Plan was made possible by the commitment to retain the land in its entirety. The Irvine Company resisted intense pressure to sell the land piece by piece to the highest bidders.
