The Segerstrom family has announced it would add more than 900 homes and scale back office space in an effort to win more support from nearby homeowners for its South Coast Metro Home Ranch development in Costa Mesa. Planning Commission hearings on the project, which were originally scheduled for next week, have been postponed until Aug. 28 to give the public and city officials time to study the changes.

Segerstrom & Sons, that activists say discourages the hiring and promotion of gays. In a memo to managing partner Henry T.

C.J. Segerstrom & Sons plans to build offices and stores on 86 acres near its prized project, South Coast Plaza. The Costa Mesa City Council agreed this week to accept the family-owned firm's applications for general plan amendments and zone changes that could allow the developments to go forward. The property is between the San Diego Freeway and Sunflower Avenue, just west of Fairview Road. Most of the land would be used for office buildings, four to nine stories high.

C.J. Segerstrom & Sons is proposing a "radically different" Home Ranch development at the 86-acre site. A previous proposal became the center of controversy a decade ago, when the company sought to build a 32-story office building on the land. This plan features only low-rise office buildings and includes a freeway offramp to ease traffic. But the project, which Segerstrom said could generate $1 million in sales and property taxes, would require a General Plan amendment.

The law firm of Rutan & Tucker, one of the county's larger office tenants, has negotiated a new lease at Central Bank Tower in Costa Mesa said by the landlord to be worth about $25 million. The lease is one of the largest in Orange County this year, covering 90,000 square feet over 10 years. Brokers said such a large tenant as Rutan & Tucker probably negotiated a very favorable deal with the landlord, C.J. Segerstrom & Sons.

The owners of South Coast Plaza plan to build a bridge across Bristol Street to link the shopping mall to the Town Center office and entertainment complex. C.J Segerstrom & Sons submitted plans to the city last week in seeking permits for the bridge. Malcolm Ross, who represented the developer before the City Council, said his firm hopes the bridge will be capable of handling a people-mover--either a moving belt or a monorail car.

As it has been for thousands of years--regardless of technology--the fate of farmers is firmly in the hands of an ever-fickle Mother Nature. Two years ago, a cool, overcast summer made a smooth farming season for C.J. Segerstrom & Sons and their four large Orange County lima bean fields. While it took longer than usual for the broad, flat beans to dry out, Ted Segerstrom said, they were spared the harsh heat that can leave them dried and cracked.

Talk to merchants at Crystal Court or South Coast Plaza Village and expect to hear the same word pop up over and over again. The word is quiet. "The mall overall is really quiet," one said. "It gets rather quiet here," another said. "It gets so quiet you can hear the crickets," yet a third said. In the mall business, quiet is bad. Most retailers depend upon a steady stream of customers to attract attention to their stores.
