Eichler, right, president of Eichler Homes of Palo Alto, shows City Administrator George Weimer (left) and Mayor Rex Parks where his firm will build 133 homes in southeast Orange starting Oct. 19. Eichler’s project, the first venture of the large-scale developer in Southern California, is one of the many developments which have pushed the year’s building figures close to an all-time record in Orange.
