Welcome to the latest edition of The TenantBase Tour Guide, for startups and businesses looking to move into our wonderful Orange County cities. This week’s featured city is Costa Mesa, centrally located between San Diego and Los Angeles and only minutes from the beach. Costa Mesa office space is plentiful and affordable!
Since its incorporation in 1932, Costa Mesa has grown from a semi-rural farming community of 17,000 to a suburban city of about 113,000. Costa Mesa is known for world-class shopping center South Coast Plaza, theatre mecca Segerstrom Center for the Arts, and one of the largest fairs in the world, Orange County Fair.
Coffee Nature has been in Costa Mesa since 2014 and has since gained many fans due to their friendly service, gluten free treats, and wide range of drinks, including the always popular Stumptown coffee.
“It is great to work in Costa Mesa because there are a lot of small businesses,” said Chelsea. “A great resource for small businesses is other small businesses. For example, we buy our bagels and gluten free treats from shops down the road. We all support each other!”
As far as things to do, both sisters are big fans of The Wayfarer, a music venue that hosts indie rock singer/songwriters. They also name the Lab Anti-Mall as a great place to try out new restaurants and visit local shops.
“There is something for everyone here,” said Megan. “There are so many different types of people that come here for recreation. There is the Rockreation for rock climbing, a cool music scene at the Wayfarer, and upscale shopping at South Coast Plaza.”
