Ehret, vice president/manager of the Orange County branch of Iliff, Thorn & Co. Orange County demand for research and development and corporate headquarter space doubled last year, while office leasing declined slightly, according to Robert Dunham, president of the Newport Economics Group.

Despite the glut of office space in Orange County, the recently completed Plaza Tower--Garden Grove's largest office complex and the first in the county to be linked to a hotel--has nearly 70% of its space leased or committed a week before the building is scheduled to open. The connection of office to hotel via a sprawling, 160-foot-high atrium appears to be a big attraction for tenants.

It is the ultimate in office politics. Forget the ideological fights, the political bickering, the policy flaps. The fiercest battles in our state's Capitol are over who gets a room with a view. Now into that tussle over office space wades Orange County Assemblywoman Marilyn C. Brewer. The Irvine Republican has gotten the somewhat dubious honor of heading a subcommittee that will hand out the office assignments for the coming year.

In the wake of major cutbacks announced by the Irvine Co., officials in several Orange County cities predicted Wednesday that there would be no immediate impact on the company's building projects planned for their communities.

Tenants will probably rent less office space in Orange County in 1990 than in any year since 1985. That was the word Tuesday from Grubb & Ellis Co., a big commercial real estate broker that tracks the local market. After the frantic building boom of the mid-1980s, 23% of the space in the county's 660 largest buildings is now empty. That amounts to nearly 11 million square feet, the equivalent of more than 500 floors of the average high-rise office building.
