LUX – KTGY, Intracorp Open Uptown Irvine Townhomes


January 25, 2019

Priced from the mid $800,000s, LUX homes range from 1,587 to 2,077 square feet.

KTGY Architecture + Planning announced today the grand opening of LUX by Intracorp, an enclave of 39 townhomes in Uptown Irvine offering access to the best schools, workplaces, shopping, dining and entertainment venues.

This pedestrian-friendly, luxury, urban lifestyle community also provides easy access to the Southland’s major transport hubs and freeways, lock-and-leave convenience to John Wayne Airport, and excellent walking trails, bike paths and golf courses. The grand opening will be held on Saturday, January 26, from 12-5 p.m.

Priced from the mid $800,000s, LUX homes range from 1,587 to 2,077 square feet. The contemporary, open floor plans feature three to four bedrooms and attached two-car garages. Select home sites include private entry courtyards, spacious decks for indoor/outdoor entertaining and either a den or convenient first-floor bedroom with an en-suite bath. Master bedroom suites have large, well-placed windows to maximize natural light and expansive walk-in closets. Gourmet cooks and take-out types alike will appreciate the well-appointed, energy-efficient kitchens. A community park with built-in barbeques, dining tables, shade trellis and open turf area make for a lovely place to meet neighbors.

KTGY’s LUX townhomes.

“A haven of luxury within Orange County’s commercial and entertainment heart is Uptown Irvine, which has been increasingly attractive to new residents,” said Intracorp Vice President of Development Rick Puffer. “We are pleased to open LUX located in the center of Uptown Irvine, which offers the opportunity to reside minutes away from the area’s top corporate offices, centers for research and learning, world-class entertainment venues, shopping and dining.”

Built on what was once an office park on the residential side of the Irvine Business Complex (IBC), this new 1.97-acre residential development is part of a new wave of residential housing and upscale amenities in Uptown Irvine.

According to KTGY Associate Principal Bryan Sevy, LEED AP, “This new development fits right in with the fabric of the existing residential neighborhood. The majority of the residential communities in the IBC are rental apartments so it is exciting to give people homeownership opportunities, where there are professional jobs, shopping, dining and entertainment all within walking distance.”

Sevy continued, “The floor plans are open and thoughtfully designed around entertaining and social gatherings in the home and offer the flexibility to accommodate a wide variety of buyer preferences. The kitchens are generous in size and a ground-level bedroom may serve as a bedroom, office or studio space, ideal for professionals who work at home. Each home also has an attached, private two-car garage with direct home access and plenty of storage.”

Modern design elements such as clean lines and expansive windows are complemented by a contemporary color palette with stone accents, Sevy noted. Facades oriented to both public and private streets and a large private park create an active ground floor and promote walkability to nearby employment centers and restaurants.

Located at 17821 Gillette Avenue in Irvine, across from the Irvine Concourse, LUX is close to the area’s hundreds of corporate HQs and startups such as Google, Houzz and Edwards Lifesciences, as well as commuting hubs such as Irvine and Tustin Metrolink stations and John Wayne Airport. Nearby, family-friendly dining, shopping and entertainment venues include The District, Diamond Jamboree, Park Place, South Coast Plaza, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. LUX also offers easy access to the I-405 and 55 freeways.
