High Concept, Low Price: At the other end of the condo scene:
RecreActions Group of Companies, a Newport Beach builder known for its high-concept, high-density, user-friendly developments, opens its newest project July 20 in Rancho Santa Margarita.
RGC's Montana del Lago is situated on the last lake-front parcel in the planned community, yet meets the Santa Margarita Co.'s demand for lower-cost housing. Prices for the 192 units will run from $119,900 to $165,900, and the units will range in size from 780 to 1,400 square feet.
The two- and three-story buildings are designed in an early California villa theme and contain five different floor plans, ranging from one-level flats to three-level town homes, all built over subterranean garages.
