San Diego residential developer Curt Noland loses battle with cancer

Cited as an innovator in San Diego residential development, Curt Noland gained prominence and awards for San Elijo Hills and Aviara. I have fond memories walking every last mile of fencing at Aviara as part of a construction defect case years ago. What an amazing development. Noland passed away last week from cancer at just 55 years of age.

Mr. Noland worked as director of development in the 1990s for Aviara Land Associates and joined HomeFed in 1998 where he was vice president and senior development officer, managing entitlement, design, development and sale of several projects. “He was a skillful negotiator, but always valued honesty and integrity. In all the years that I knew Curt, I never saw him lose his temper or speak harshly to anyone,” said friend David Hymer of Luce Forward.
