Homes for Chinese: Largo Vista Group, Ltd., a Newport Beach maker of manufactured homes, said it has signed a deal to export its houses to China. Models are scheduled to be shipped this week from the Port of Long Beach to Shenzhen, China, 30 miles from Hong Kong. The models will be erected in China for viewing by potential buyers. The population of Shenzhen, China's largest "Special Economic Zone," has grown from 40,000 to 4 million in the past 10 years--creating a severe housing shortage.

Like many Orange County developers, John A. Jones has visions of wooded hillsides covered in ranch-style homes. The difference is that Jones' vision doesn't stop at Temecula or Rancho Santa Margarita or any of the Southland's new edge cities. The hillsides he sees are near the Chinese free enterprise zone of Shenzhen, China--just north of the Hong Kong border. And Jones isn't a builder, he's an exporter. His company, Largo Vista Group Ltd.
