The Orange County Register

Progress is moving full speed ahead on South Cove, Dana Point’s premier barefoot community featuring 168 luxury condo residences located just steps from beautiful Doheny State Beach and Dana Point Harbor’s restaurants and shops.

San Diego-based real estate development company, Zephyr, officially broke ground on the beach-side community last week.

“South Cove is the first project of its kind to be built in Dana Point in more than 25 years,” says Zephyr Chief Operating Officer Chris Beucler. “Finally, residents will be able to enjoy laid-back luxury in a community that offers immediate access to Doheny State Beach and Dana Point Harbor via a short stroll on the San Juan Creek Bike Trail, or the Pacific Coast Highway Pedestrian Bridge.”

The community will feature three models: “Aliso” flats, “Trestles” townhomes and “Strands” twin homes – each ranging from one to three bedrooms with 883 to 2,341 square feet. All residences will have attached garages and top notch interior finishes and accents, with select homes featuring indoor/outdoor floorplans, balconies, porches, rooftop decks, idea spaces and options for beach rinses, dens and more. Ten residences will feature live/work space fronting Pacific Coast Highway.

In addition to the area’s abundant natural beauty, South Cove residents will enjoy a multitude of amenities, including a resort-style swimming pool with cabanas and common areas throughout the community. And outdoor enthusiasts will have access to miles of walking/bike paths, plus ocean sports like surfing, paddle boarding, fishing and more.

Homeowners will also enjoy a new public park though a partnership between Zephyr and the city of Dana Point. The park will border South Cove and feature art and installations that pay tribute to the surf culture and celebrated history of the city. One of two plazas will feature a series of 10 life-size sculptures by Bill Limebrook depicting surfing pioneers like Phil Edwards. The Hobie Memorial Foundation is fundraising for a 30-foot bronze Hobie Cat Sailboat, built as a tribute to Hobie Alter, who created and sold the first foam surfboards in Dana Point. The other plaza will focus on California history, with interpretive signs and a detailed timeline chronicling the history of Highway 1, among other features.

Presales on South Cove begin this spring, and the models are slated to open in summer 2017.
