I live in a Mark Singer home at 28981 Top of the World Dr. located across the street from the project proposed by Mark Singer and Joe Kramer for 28911 Sommet du Monde (Variance 7616 and Design Review 09-022).  I would like to go On-Record that I am very much apposed to this Project. I believe it is important to note that the Homes within the gated community (all but 2 at the south end) have "sunken foundations" which protect the view of the Ridgeline of not only the neighbors but of all residents of TOW which enjoy the overall Landscape as they take walks to enjoy this very special area of TOW.  In addition, it is clear that Joe Kramer, as a Builder knew if he had originally asked this Board to approve such a Large Project when he first purchased the property, his chances of success were limited at best.

A groundbreaking ceremony for two Laguna beachfront residences took place July 23, with construction already underway. The two homes, developed by Tresor Properties, are designed to be highly eco-friendly and could be the “greenest” homes on the California coast, according to Tresor. More than 100 people attended the ceremony with several dignitaries also in attendance, including Mayor Kelly Boyd and other city council members. Darren Moore, host of Planet Green Television’s “Alter Eco,” hosted the event.

Barbara Diamond Neighborhood compatibility was the key to the rejection of a home proposed for a site near the gateway to parkland at the end of Alta Laguna in Top of the World. The City Council unanimously rejected a proposal Tuesday to construct a residence that opponents argued was out-of scale with the neighborhood, blocked public and private views, was inappropriate for the location adjacent to three parks and posed a danger to pedestrians, hikers and bikers.

Same-sex partners deserve same rights I completely support AB 205, giving same-sex registered domestic partners many rights of married couples. If two people love one another and have the courage to choose to share their lives, they should be saluted and honored for their commitment. I believe such rights are human rights and, therefore, are meant for everyone. If one group is given legal rights, then all should receive them. KIM DE ST. PAER Irvine Design board deserves thanks Holidays!

Glori Fickling Achieving Zagat survey notoriety consistently for almost 10 years since opening in the summer of 1995, the phenomenal success of 230 Forest in Downtown Laguna Beach is further exemplified in the quartet of equally popular restaurants launched by dauntless co-owners over the last five years. Plaudits go to Marc Cohen, the indefatigable executive chef, quintessential hostess Terry Rothbard, architect Mark Singer and new-site negotiator Jules Swimmer.

Barbara Diamond The City Council rejected the advice of its own staff and Planning Commission and the pleas of neighbors and environmentalists to retain long-standing building restrictions on an Alta Laguna lot next to open space. "When is a deal not a deal?" Top of the World resident Karen Schwager asked. The council voted 3 to 2 at the Feb. 11 meeting to modify limits on the height and width of construction and the requirement for a turnaround placed on Lot 8 at 3355 Alta Laguna Blvd.

On Peppertree Lane, that venerable old pepper tree watches over the changing scene, embracing all comers, the newest being Watermarc, the restaurant that has transformed the former Partners’ Bistro into a chic boîte for sipping and grazing. It certainly helps to have Mark Singer as a partner when redesigning a restaurant. Laguna’s premier contemporary architect has worked his magic on yet another space, creating a rooftop greenhouse setting for dining, beneath the arms of that arboreal patriarch.

The evolution of 230 Forest Avenue reflects the evolution of Laguna Beach itself. Once it was the site of the historic Forest Market, a little grocery store and sandwich shop that sported undulating plank floors, an ancient deli case and folding accordion-style wooden doors that opened across the front onto the sidewalk. You could pick up a tuna-salad sandwich, an apple, a bag of chips or a chocolate bar. It was a Laguna institution that served the locals and tourists on their way to the beach.
