As many of you know the Laguna Riviera experienced a slope failure during the record setting rains of February 2005. In the ensuing 7-1/2 years we worked with our team of engineers, geologists, and contractors to develop a long term solution that would pass the cities various engineering and design approval processes and make the property safe for years to come.
We have finally cleared those hurdles and, as of the beginning of 2012, the slope is now under re-construction. As a result there will be some noise during the weekdays and during this process, the beach access will be via St. Anns street on the north side of the property. The street can be accessed from coast hwy., or stairs on the 4th. level, or stairs on the 3rd. level.
The project was scheduled to be completed before the Summer season but due to unforeseen geological conditions, it will continue into the Summer and beyond. The work while mostly quieter than the crashing waves, on occasion requires loud saws and jackhammers. Please be aware of this when planning your stay.
We will post pictures here from time to time to show the current status of the work. If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
