Fast and furious

The news from and about Loreto and Loreto Bay seems to be coming fast and furious these days, which dovetails nicely with the rapid pace of construction on our Casa Encantada and many other homes in Agua Viva.

Just this morning we received a long and fairly detailed e-mail report from Michael Coyle about progress development including the sprucing up (that's putting it mildly) of the Paseo, plans for the beach club (with word due out this fall about membership rates, etc.), air service, marketing, hotel renovations and more.

The most surprising news involved the closing of LB's Scottsdale, Ariz., office and a relocation of staff - those able and willing - to Loreto. This will be a major plus for homeowners and future homeowners. It will be much easier to drop in and conduct business - or just visit - if the offices are in Loreto. And it will make selling the development a lot easier with a permanent staff on site.

All this good news followed closely on the heels of an e-mail George and I received from our account manager yesterday, which included even more current photos of our construction showing the beginnings of a ceiling on the first floor. And it looks from the photos as though construction on the other homes in our cluster is also progressing nicely. Like I said earlier, fast and furious.

If you haven't already opened that e-mail from Michael Coyle, do it now! Lots of news and even an artist's rendering of plans - artist rendering - for the Paseo including a bell tower, lots of foliage and a lovely meandering walkway alongside the thoroughfare. And don't forget to check out LB's revamped Web site while you're at it.

I loved the look of the Paseo and it's nice to know about some of the work going on behind the scenes. The letter sounded promising about the future of the whole Loreto area.

I especially like the office moving to Loreto, makes a lot of sense.

Glad you heard from your account manager!

Thanks Penny. It was a nice surprise to (finally) hear from our account manager. And she sent lots of new photos which are on the top right hand side of the page. If you click on that slideshow, you should be able to see a couple showing your lot!
