For a while, it seemed as if it would never stop. Orange County's businesses created more jobs, which brought more people into the county, which meant even more jobs for the companies that audited the books, did the legal work and sold insurance. And all those lawyers and accountants needed office space. There were plenty of lenders who took a look at all the activity and told a developer: "Sure, we'll lend you enough to put up another office building." And the developer did.

Orange County's newest office tower will probably be the area's last for at least two years. Plaza Tower--a plush, 21-story high-rise built by a joint venture partnership of International Business Machines Corp. and an affiliate of Orange County developer C.J. Segerstrom & Sons--opened last month in Costa Mesa. And the new kid on the block may maintain that status well into 1993. "There will be a hiatus," said Scott Perley, branch manager of Cushman & Wakefield brokerage in Irvine.

Re "Who lost Stockton?," Editorial, June 28 The Times gets it mostly correct, stating that running a city "requires skill, experience and a sense of duty. " Its assertion that this "involves the very business-like practice of taking risks with other people's money" is off the mark, however. The comment also applies to state and federal governments. Ever optimists, we assume that the requisite skills and experience are present to address the issues when, in fact, such an expectation is not realistic.

Amid warnings that high housing prices and snarled freeways are driving off some manufacturing companies, demand for factory space in Orange County grew more than 15% in the first nine months of the year. But that wasn't enough to whittle down a vacancy rate of 14%--or 21 million square feet of empty space--in the third quarter, according to a recent survey by real estate firm Coldwell Banker. In contrast, the national vacancy rate for industrial space was a much lower 5.

Re "Obama's strategic blind spot," Opinion, July 6 Andrew J. Bacevich paints a relatively clear picture of his wish for a U.S. foreign policy strategy, but he cannot resist revealing a common bias. His barbs directed at George W. Bush and his administration are not relevant to his point. Unfortunately, too, he fails to state what the goal of the strategy is, making it difficult to evaluate the likelihood of success or failure. Taken literally, his commentary would suggest that the only goal is a strategy.

Japan's largest consumer credit company has purchased an 18-acre parcel of undeveloped land across from MainPlace/Santa Ana for $23.5 million, a representative of the Japanese firm said Friday. Orient Finance Co., which has more than $29 billion in total assets, paid slightly more than $1.3 million an acre to acquire the site from the Hurwitz family. According to area real estate observers, the price appears to have set a local record for land sold without approvals for development.

That the recent "CenterLine Yes" flier presents a one-sided view is no surprise, but the omissions on the "yes" side are flagrant, and the references to Measure B are inflammatory and grossly misleading -- not exactly what I deserve from my City Council members. On the "yes" side, half of the 170,000 commuters who reportedly drive on Irvine streets are within "easy walking distance of CenterLine" because they drove here, not because they live near it. Except for the few who live near UC Irvine, there is no CenterLine "benefit" to Irvine residents.

Re: "Developers Back Prop. 51 With Eye on Irvine," Oct. 26: Remember how the Irvine Great Park was to be built without any cost to the taxpayer? Well, think again. What Irvine's Mayor Larry Agran and his developer friends failed to tell us is that they have slipped into Proposition 51, a $1-billion-a-year measure, $110 million to help pay for the Great Park at El Toro and additional funding for an airport terminal without the planes. They want to be able to check in and ride to the airport of their choice.
