I know it's not the U.S., but if there's one big city anywhere just like Irvine, it's Singapore all the way.
What high ranking universities exist in Plano and The Woodlands?

Plano is only 15 minutes down the road from SMU. The Woodlands is close to Rice.

Singapore has NUS and NTU.

I mean Singapore checks all the boxes in your criteria and more because it's got such an extensive, efficient subway that you won't need a car.

The downside is that it's the most expensive country in the world to own a car. But apartments are spacious, decent, and relatively affordable. $500 per square foot for a new suburban apartment with all the amenities, close to the subway station. What other big city can say that?

The weather is Asia's best. No natural disasters except some flash flooding, but hey, even Phoenix gets flash flooding, and the cleanest air of any city in Asia along with some cities in Japan. The violent crime rate is most as low as Irvine's. The traffic runs as smoothly as Irvine. The airport ranks #1 in customer satisfaction most years.

Singapore tops every other Irvine-like city in QOL.
