Gone are the plans for a grandiose, 27,000-square-foot headquarters for the Stein-Brief Group at the upscale corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Ritz Carlton Drive. Because of the poor economy and a shift to new ventures, South County developers Barry Brief and David Stein have come up with a more modest plan for the corner spot now occupied by a cottage housing Monarch Beach Realty.

Six homeowners living in a posh section of San Clemente will receive between $300,000 and $500,000 each to shore up their sagging homes.

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.

Monster machines are moving more than a million cubic yards of earth and sand to stabilize a landslide-threatened ocean bluff between Monarch Bay and Dana Point where developers already have sold 75% of the bluff-top home lots for up to $2.2 million. The unstable condition of the bluff near the exclusive Ritz-Carlton hotel in Laguna Niguel "has been recognized for years. It's the location of an ancient large landslide," said James A.

David Stein won't say how much he actually made when--with Hawaii resort developer Christopher B. Hemmeter--he sold 232 acres of prime property in Dana Point for a cool $132 million in July, nearly four times what was paid for it two years before. But you can be sure that his development firm, Stein-Brief Group, can afford an extra print or two and some house plants to gussie up its unassuming offices in a small Dana Point shopping center.

Two prized coastal properties in Dana Point that are scheduled for resort development have been sold to an Australian entrepreneur for about $245 million. Christopher C. Skase, who burst upon the Southern California scene in March when his Qintex Group agreed to buy the United Artists movie studio, said Friday that he plans to build a "five-star integrated resort" on the two sites, known as Monarch Beach and the Dana Point headlands. The properties are less than a mile apart off Coast Highway.
