California’s Most Affordable Office Market is Orange County

Research by JLL reveals Orange County’s office occupancy costs are actually more affordable than California’s major tech markets of Silicon Valley, San Francisco, West Los Angeles and San Diego.

JLL’s Jared Dienstag says, “Orange County has a strong tech ecosystem that continues to expand. Tech firms have a large labor pool of STEM graduates in Orange County to build companies, while also saving considerably on operating costs. This enables companies to make a dollar go a longer way than other more expensive California markets.”
