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.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, wil...
