"I’ve been officed in the South Coast Metro for 32 years. The South Coast Metro Area offers a unique blend of freeway accessibility, views, and amenities such as the California scenario, walking paths and easy access to South Coast Plaza, fine and casual dining, theatres and concert halls. I think an often overlooked benefit of doing business in South Coast Metro is the impact it has on a company’s ability to attract and retain employees, who take pride in working in the unique and prestigious environment that the South Coast Metro provides. "
