The developers of a plush oceanside resort in Dana Point say construction has been delayed again, this time at least until fall. The California Coastal Commission approved the $300-million Monarch Beach Resort more than a year ago. As late as March, Dana Point developer Stein-Brief Group Inc. said construction would begin in May. Now it could be the end of the year before construction starts, Stein-Brief said this week. The developer said the delay was caused by "minor processing things" but declined to elaborate.
