Seacliff Partners, the joint venture that owns and is developing the 569-acre Holly-Seacliff project on former oil land in Huntington Beach, will be master builder and general contractor during the decade or so it will take to build it all.

A controversial extension of Seapoint Street to Pacific Coast Highway quietly opened late last month. The $1.2-million four-lane road extends 400 feet at edge of the new Surfcrest condominium project, near Palm Avenue, to Pacific Coast Highway. It was paid for by Seacliff Partners as a city condition to develop 3,800 homes in the area. The city required the extension to improve access for police and fire units and as a disaster evacuation route.

Breaking with tradition, the new school will be named for the Seacliff area in the western section of the city.

A site just across city limits in Westminster is being considered for a 9-million-gallon reservoir. The city is negotiating to buy the two-acre site at Beach Boulevard and Edinger Avenue. Appraisal of the property should be completed in about 45 days, said Jeffrey Renna, water operations manager. A well also is proposed for the site. The reservoir would be built by Seacliff Partners to mitigate the effects of the development company's Holly-Seacliff housing project on the city's water system.
