  • In response to the growing Orange County employment base, new multi-family developments in the Irvine Business Complex and greater Airport Area are providing additional housing in the county’s core business district.
  • There are 2,203 housing units currently under construction, 4,845 units approved for development, and 11,959 existing units in the Airport Area.
  • As a greater share of the population looks to trim daily commutes, this new housing supply provides people with greater opportunity to have a short drive, bike, or walk to work.
  • This rise in density will appeal to existing businesses and those looking to relocate here as they will have a growing local workforce to recruit talent. Orange County’s employment base has grown 20 percent in the last 10 years to 1.67 million people.
