Portola Center South, a Lake Forest, Orange County, Calif., 95.5-acre tract.

The Orange County (Calif.) Register staffer Jeff Collins reports on the big moves being made by Landsea Holdings Co., the firm managing U.S. development for one of China's Top 100 builders.

The firm recently moved its U.S. base to Irvine from Pasadena to be closer to the national and regional offices for a host of homebuilding firms.
