Costa Mesa, CA Economic Overview

Location Photo

Costa Mesa is located in the heart of affluent Orange County, between San Diego and Los Angeles and just one mile from the Pacific Ocean. The city is bordered by Santa Ana, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley and Irvine. With a population of over 112,000 residents, Costa Mesa is a retail power house, ranking the 10th largest among all of the California cities. One project alone, South Coast Plaza, generates an amazing $1.4 billion in sales annually, more than double its nearest competitor. In addition to retail, the city's seven primary industries of Action Sports, Hospitality, Luxury Retail, Education, Arts, Autos, and Restaurants all drive the Costa Mesa commercial real estate market. The city has successfully attracted and kept both national and international businesses. The diverse economic base of Costa Mesa includes not only the booming retail center of South Coast Plaza, but also businesses such as Metro Pointe, The Camp, The Lab, SoCo Collection, countless five-star restaurants and hotels, and leaders in the action sports industry like Hurley International, Rip Curl, and Vans.

With a median household income of over $66,000 and a job growth of over 2% last year, households here earn more money than those in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim metropolitan area and the State of California. The economy is expected to remain strong, with future job growth in Costa Mesa over the next ten years expected to exceed 40%, thanks in part to the business-friendly municipality, diverse mix of industry, access to the integrated transportation system of Orange County, and the area's highly educated and motivated work force.

Costa Mesa, CA Commercial Real Estate Market

The continuous growth of the commercial real estate market in Costa Mesa is due in no small part to the city's unique geographic positioning, the diversity of businesses in the retail commercial industry, light manufacturing of electronics, pharmaceuticals, plastics, action sports industries, and last, but definitely not least, its retail sales base.

Major retail centers in Costa Mesa include South Coast Plaza, Metro Pointe, SoCo, The Camp, The Lab, Harbor Center, The Square, The Courtyards, and The Triangle. The combined retail sales of all locations in Costa Mesa is nearly $4 billion annually. Despite the number of retailers in the city, vacancy rates are just a touch over 2% with even more retail development projects in the pipeline.

As testimony to Costa Mesa's pro-active business development stance, there are more than a dozen major development projects, including the 78-acre Harbor Gateway Business Center, the 43 acre Segerstrom Home Ranch, the 33 acre Sakioka Farms Lot 2, The Californian by Legacy Partners at 580 Anton, the Avenue of the Arts Hotel, and the 393 unit Symphony Apartments.

The Costa Mesa office submarket is known as one of the most desirable in Orange County. Office vacancy in Costa Mesa is hovering right around 10%, with the Industrial Area and South Coast Metro Area attracting the largest percentage of office users. Commercial and retail use is centered along the Commercial Strip area and the South Coast Metro area. The industrial market in Costa Mesa remains tight due to strong demand from tenants in the professional & scientific, manufacturing, construction, and wholesale trade industries.
