Magic Johnson Vacation Home Would Be Nice AAEA Office

Magic and Cookie Johnson just bought a $7.6 million vacation home in Orange County, California. AAEA needs a west coast office and it would be an excellent location for AAEA's supplemental west coast research operation. The 7,700 square foot home is newly built and located in a gated community with a private beach in Dana Point (see map). There is a view of Catalina Island, the coastline or the ocean from almost every window. This would be an excellent environment for an auxillary AAEA outreach/research/office/residence. AAEA has a very specific research and education program it would implement from this location. AAEA had a similar location (not that expensive though) south of Annapolis, Maryland (Highland Beach) for 3 years.

Since Earvin "Magic" Johnson and Cookie are so busy and will only spend (maybe) a week per year in the home, the facility could be put to great use in service of protecting the environment. Magic became part owner of the L.A. Lakers in 1994 and has been a head coach of the team. He has been a sportscaster on NBC-TV and a studio analyst on TNT. He also owns Starbucks coffee shops and movie theaters.
