The co-working market is finally making a big splash in Orange County. Co-working operators have been active in Los Angeles and San Diego, and now the Orange County market is seeing an increasing demand for co-working space. The market has grown to more than 680,000 square feet. While the market is still said to be in its “infancy,” it is expected to grow thanks to the millennial population and adopting of technology in the workspace.
