Laguna Niguel, situated in the coastal hills between Laguna Beach and Dana Point, boasts award-winning schools, attractive neighborhoods, upscale resorts and hotels, fine dining and entertainment experiences. The city’s rolling hills offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. The beach is moments away.

This South Orange County city incorporated on December 1, 1989 and is a master planned community developed to contain a balance between residential neighborhoods (single family houses and condos), parks, schools and business space. The city enjoys access to the Orange County trail system via Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park — ideal for adventurous hikers and mountain bike riders. Abundant parks and youth sports programs add to the attraction of this vibrant and relatively new community.

The City of Laguna Niguel is home to roughly 63,000 people and has over 20 community parks

Historically, “Rancho Niguel” was the private property of Juan Avila, a resident of San Juan Capistrano, who obtained title to the land through a Mexican land grant in 1842 — title he re-established after California became US territory in 1848.

In 1895, “Rancho Niguel” became part of the Moulton Company.

The Laguna Niguel Corporation was formed in 1959 by Cabot, Cabot & Forbes, who turned it into one of the first master planned communities on the west coast. Plots in the Monarch Bay and Laguna Terrace subdivisions went on sale in 1961. Avco Community Developer took over in 1971 and continued development of the original Master Plan.

A bit of trivia: The name “Laguna Niguel” is from the Spanish word for lagoon, and the word “Nigueli” — the name of a Juaneno Indian settlement that one existed near Aliso Creek.

Another bit of trivia: Laguna Niguel is home to what locals call “The Ziggurat Building”. In 1971, a million-square-foot ziggurat-shaped (like a Mesopotamian terraced temple) building was designed by Los Angeles-based architect William Pereira for Rockwell International. The building was traded to the US government in exchange for debt before it was ever completed. Now known as the Chet Holifield Federal Building, the building’s photogenic good looks have landed it several movie rolls. It appears in the 1995 movie Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman, where it served as the exterior for the Centers for Disease Control. The building is also in the last scene of the 1975 sci-fi cult classic Death Race 2000. In the 1983 movie Deal of the Century with Chevy Chase and Gregory Hines it had a major roll as the headquarters for the Luckup Corporation. Viewed from high above, the building’s parking lot and entrance plaza form the logo of the defense contractor that never called it home: Rockwell International.

Laguna Niguel lies within ZIP Codes 92607 and 92677.
