South Coast Metro Santa Ana Homes For Sale


South Coast Metro is an area loosely defined by its proximity to South Coast Plaza and John Wayne Airport, and comprising the surrounding portions of Santa AnaCosta MesaIrvine, and Newport Beach.  This neighborhood distinguishes the more cosmopolitan environment of the South Coast area from the surrounding suburbs that include Santa Ana.


The South Coast Metro area includes its namesake, South Coast Plaza, along with hotels and residences.  In addition to South Coast Plaza, South Coast Metro encompasses the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and South Coast Repertory theater company.

Several prominent outdoor sculptures and other works of arts are displayed in the area around these buildings by artists such as Isamu Noguchi, Jean Dubuffet, Henry Moore, Richard Serra and others.  This sub-section of South Coast Metro is sometimes referred to as the Costa Mesa Theater and Arts District.

A satellite of the Orange County Museum of Art, called The Orange Lounge, is located inside South Coast Plaza. Recently, plans have been drawn to move the main museum, currently located in Newport Beach to South Coast Metro.


South Coast Metro is served by the San Diego (I-405), Costa Mesa (SR-55), and Corona Del Mar (SR-73) freeways. A bus rapid transit line connecting the area to nearby John Wayne Airport, downtown Santa Ana and Anaheim is being considered for implementation in the future.
