Prompted by shrinking office vacancy rates and spiraling rents, a Phoenix-based developer plans to build a speculative high-rise office building near John Wayne Airport, the first such project in Orange County in seven years. Opus Southwest Corp. said Tuesday that it had formed a joint venture with SPI/Irvine Holdings, the owner of the last remaining acres in Koll Center Irvine North, to build a 12-story office building of about 250,000 square feet.

Orange County wasn't born yesterday. But most of its high-rise hotels were born after 1974--the year that California adopted an ordinance mandating automatic sprinkler systems in new buildings taller than 75 feet. Therefore, the vast majority of high-rise hotels in the county are protected by sprinklers in every room.

When it comes to high-rise buildings in Orange County, the extreme isn't all that extreme. Costa Mesa's Center Tower, at 287 feet and 21 stories, is the tallest. The second-tallest building in the county is just 2 feet shorter: the 21-story Plaza Tower, also in Costa Mesa, near South Coast Plaza. Signs indicate that these kings of the Orange County skyline probably won't be dethroned by other structures any time soon.

County and Anaheim fire officials revealed Thursday that several high-rise buildings, including a retirement home in Laguna Hills and eight high-rise hotels and office buildings in Anaheim, do not have sprinkler systems. Fire officials said most high-rise buildings in Orange County were built after 1974, when the state building code set forth a requirement for sprinkler systems and other fire prevention precautions.

The costly fire at the 62-story First Interstate Bank building in Los Angeles had firefighters in Orange County taking inventory, and what they came up with should move local elected officials into speedy action. A partial list of tall buildings that were constructed before a 1974 state building code change made sprinkler systems mandatory in high-rise structures included eight hotels, a 14-story retirement tower and several office buildings.

The Anaheim City Council voted Tuesday to take the first steps in adopting wide-ranging fire ordinances requiring sprinkler systems in 12 older high-rise buildings and in new residential and commercial buildings. The City Council will vote next week on whether to formally adopt a high-rise sprinkler ordinance. They also set a public hearing for April 4 to consider requiring sprinklers in new residential and commercial buildings.
