Project Location

The proposed project involves a General Plan Amendment (GPA) and Zone Change for portions of Planning Area (PA) 12 and PA 40 in the central portion of the City of Irvine (City) in Orange County, California.

Planning Area 12 (Oak Creek). PA 12 totals approximately 1,053 acres and is bound by Jeffrey Rd. to the northwest, Interstate (I) 5 to the northeast, I-405 to the southwest, and Sand Canyon Ave. to the southeast.

  • PA 12 Site. This site (formerly Traveland USA) totals 70.2 acres and is bound by the Oak Creek Golf Club to the northwest, the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) / Metrolink railroad to the southwest, Sand Canyon Ave. to the southeast, and I-5 to the northeast.

Planning Area 40 (Cypress Village). PA 40 totals 634 acres and is bound by Jeffrey Rd. to the northwest, Trabuco Rd. to the northeast, PA 51 (Great Park) to the southeast, and I-5 to the southwest.

PA 40 Marine Way Sites. This area is composed of two sites, bisected by SR-133 and totaling 12.57 acres. The northwest site is generally bound by I-5 to the west, the planned future Marine Way to the north, the SR-133 overpass to the east, and an OCTA property to the south. The southeast site is bound by the SR-133 overpass to the west, the planned future Marine Way to the northeast, and Ridge Valley to the southeast (should it be extended in the future).


The applicant has filed a request for a GPA and Zone Change specific to PAs 12 and 40. In summary, the project proposes to:

  2. Decrease the maximum nonresidential square footage allowed by 1,520,468 square feet (sf); and
  3. Amend various text, tables, and exhibits within the General Plan and Irvine Zoning Ordinance as necessary in support of the proposed amendments and for internal consistency.
