Rosedale in Azusa One of the Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities in the Country

AZUSA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- Buyer confidence is on the rise and national media has taken notice of Rosedale, a prime example of a master-planned community that is thriving with strong sales and happy homebuyers. The CBS Evening News recently visited and profiled Rosedale, where new home sales tripled from 2011 to 2012. Data that further underscores the recovery of the national housing market highlighting the exceptional performance of Rosedale is its national ranking among a comprehensive listing compiled by John Burns Real Estate Consulting. The company surveyed nearly 100 large-scale residential communities across the country to rank the 50 best-selling communities for 2012 and Rosedale proudly joined this prestigious list for the first time, ranking at #35. According to the survey, Rosedale was additionally recognized for demonstrating the biggest sales increase of any master-planned community on the list, with a 204% increase from 89 in 2011 to 271 sales in 2012.

The John Burns Real Estate Consulting Rosedale survey concluded that, "Rosedale is a great example of a community where product segmentation, community design, and superior execution come together to create a master plan that generates excitement in the market. Incorporating a thoughtfully considered 'resort' community recreation center, 10 parks, natural open space, and a future Metro Gold Line rail station, Rosedale has emerged as the place to be in the San Gabriel Valley."

"Rosedale's recent press coverage and national ranking are positive signs that point to the recovery of the housing market, as well as the thoughtful, innovative planning that have put this community in the national spotlight," said Carina Hathaway, Vice President of Marketing for Rosedale Land Partners, LLC, the developer of Rosedale. "We have been committed from the beginning to create a master-planned community where the finest new homes in the San Gabriel Valley, private resort recreation, beautiful parks and a naturally beautiful setting come together to offer a higher quality of life. Our goal is to deliver a fulfilling lifestyle to homeowners and watching this all come to fruition has been very gratifying for our entire team."

We heard for many years how developing nations would be able to develop mobile-phone networks quickly, perhaps even leapfrog developed nations, because their lack of traditional, wired networks would not inhibit them from deploying the new technology. Now there is talk of history repeating itself with the Industrial Internet--a key aspect of the emerging Internet of Things. For example, Guo Ping, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said in a recent report from the World Economic Forum, "The Industrial Internet will afford emerging markets a unique opportunity ...

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies.

As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
