"Ridgegate MiraVerde Private Townhome Village," Rancho Palos Verdes, California

Abstract/Description: Image shows the intersection of Highridge Road and Ridgegate Drive located in Rancho Palos Verdes and the entrance to the Ridgegate-MiraVerde Private Townhome Communities. Visible in the background is a building and signs advertising the exclusive Peacock Ridge condominium development. Both Ridgegate and MiraVerde were developed by the B.R. Morris Development Company. The 325-unit Ridgegate complex, designed by architect Christopher R. Wojciechowski, started selling in 1973. MiraVerde, a 250-unit development adjacent to Ridgegate opened model showrooms the following year. Floor plans for the MiraVerde homes were designed by the architectural firm of Stephen G. Oppenheim, AIA and Associates. Townhomes for both communities featured panoramic ocean and city views, recreational centers including swimming and therapy pools, night-lighted tennis and paddle tennis courts and clubhouses.
