Diverse Industrial Choices to Match Your Vision, Goals and Budget
Industrial properties in Orange County account for nearly 234 million total square feet, with individual buildings ranging in size from 12,000 square feet to over 250,000. Typical uses for these structures include warehousing, manufacturing and product assembly. Relative to other commercial property types, industrial facilities are characterized by:
- Larger warehouse to office proportions (typically 10%-25% office area)
- Ground level and dock high-load doors
- Warehouse height for product and equipment storage
- Significant electrical power for manufacturing
Older, Newer and Everything in Between
From the mid-60s to the late 1970s, Orange County’s industrial buildings were mostly built in selected sectors of Anaheim, Santa Ana and the Irvine Business Complex, near John Wayne Airport. Prior to construction, owners would acquire parcels and custom-build facilities to meet specialized size, performance or operational requirements.
Most of these structures are still around today. The early to mid-2000s also saw a strong surge of re-development to meet the current needs and trends in the market in which large warehouses were converted to smaller, individual condos and sold to investors and business owners.
Eventually, as tenant or business owers needs prevailed, the county experienced new growth of smaller industrial buildings in areas such as Irvine Spectrum, Lake Forest and Foothill Ranch. As a result, Orange County today offers owners and investors a diverse and abundant supply of second- and third-generation industrial buildings for sale or lease.
