Eastlake, California is a master-planned community within the city of Chula Vista, CA. and San Diego County. Between 1979-1981 the H.G. Fenton Company hired Cadillac-Fairview Homes West of Newport Beach to plan, zone, and develop 3,200 acres of land just south of San Diego in the City of Chula Vista. Later, Cadillac-Fairview Homes West transferred the project to employees Ron Lane and Dave Kuhn. Lane and Kuhn formed the Eastlake company and developed a team to entitle and develop the land.
Through some initial opposition from Chula Vista community leaders, the Eastlake Company was formed and the vision of Eastlake was to create a community that has everything a family would ever need — schools, parks, stores, business centers — within a single area.
Most importantly, the founders wanted to create a community that’s safe, serene and supportive of healthy, happy living. EastLake has been voted San Diego’s best new home community in The San Diego Union-Tribune reader’s poll every year since 1997.
