Rosedale Masterplan Is Minutes From Downtown LA and Moments From Nature

AZUSA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- City convenience and natural beauty might sound like an impossible combination, but they are both part of the joy of living at Rosedale, where homeowners are minutes from downtown Los Angeles and moments from nature. There is no need to choose among the amenities you want in your new-home community when you can have it all right here in the San Gabriel Valley's #1 new master-planned community. For information on how you can take the first step toward homeownership at Rosedale, visit today.

An array of new neighborhoods overlooking the scenic foothills of the San Gabriel Valley await at Rosedale, satisfying the new home needs of first-time buyers to those in the market for a luxury move-up home.

"With the great convenience to downtown L.A., nature all around, and the wide array of homes offered for every age, lifestage, and budget, homebuyers love what Rosedale has to offer," said Mercedes Meserve, Senior Marketing Manager for Rosedale Land Partners, LLC, the developer of Rosedale. "Homebuyers immediately want to live here when they visit the community for the first time, either because they have driven by or have friends and family who can't say enough good things about living here. One look at the ease of living at Rosedale, the long list of recreational amenities and the incredible new home opportunities, and it's just a matter of picking the right home and starting to pack."

Offering the largest homes in Rosedale and Christopher Homes' signature combination of modern amenities, upscale details, and functional floorplans, the Wisteria collection has already earned a legion of fans. Priced from the $700,000s, these spacious homes range from approximately 2,887 to 3,548 square feet, with four to six bedrooms, a host of sumptuous features, and two-car garages with storage.

Wisteria's first-level bedroom suites, convenient home offices, and second-floor lofts and bonus rooms give homeowners the ability to customize their floorplan to their lifestyle needs. Wisteria's Residence 2 and 2X give homebuyers who appreciate the convenience of a first-floor master suite a much-appreciated amenity. This desirable feature is standard, while a second upstairs master suite in the Residence 2X adds another level of livability.

In Residence 3, a private, three-room casita is located just steps from the activity core of the home, offering approximately 360 square feet of space ideal for families with college students or multi-generational living arrangements. Select plans also offer large secondary bedrooms, including some with ensuite baths, and attached private casitas.

The Rosedale masterplan is moments from nature, with more than 500 acres of serene natural surroundings tucked into the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Breathtaking scenery is the perfect backdrop to the community's five-star amenities, including The Resort, a two-acre community recreation center with an approximate 4,500 square-foot private clubhouse, state-of-the-art fitness center, Junior Olympic swimming pool, spa, children's wading pool, and a recreation area with trellises, an outdoor fireplace and barbecue grills.

With the Central Arroyo, residents have a special amenity that offers 13.5 acres of open space running through the community with a trail system that links neighborhoods to each other and to surrounding trails for hiking, mountain biking and walking. When the amenities are complete, Rosedale will have a total of 10 neighborhood parks including the lighted youth sports fields, basketball and multi-use courts at the future 5.5-acre Promenade Park.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC converts the entire network into a ubiquitous communications cloud thereby connecting anytime, anywhere through any point. In his session at WebRTC Summit,, Mark Castleman, EIR at Bell Labs and Head of Future X Labs, will discuss how the transformational nature of communications is achieved through the democratizing force of WebRTC. WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
