Santa Ana, CA Commercial Real Estate Market Overview
Adding to the Greater Los Angeles area’s population of 18 million and the county seat of Orange County, Santa Ana, Calif., offers great opportunities for the commercial real estate sector.
After seeing competition in terms of commercial projects from nearby Irvine, the city of Santa Ana opened up to development possibilities. This was especially true in the South Coast Metro district, which offers easy access to the John Wayne Airport, as well as Metro East, located at the junction of the Santa Ana and Costa Mesa freeways. The city is also part of a continuous development area called the Anaheim-Santa Ana edge city.
Several companies — including musical instruments manufacturer Rickenbacker, Behr Paint and The Orange County Register — chose Santa Ana as the home for their business. In addition, Xerox and T-Mobile also have major regional headquarters in the city.
