Longwood Businesses

Observing the most recent report of Seminole County Companies (PDF), the City of Longwood can truly be called a City of Entrepreneurs. With a population of 15,156 it has 1,736 registered businesses; second only to Altamonte Springs (population 42,150) in Seminole County. Small, 1-9 employees, and medium, 10-99 employees, companies are a significant part of Longwood's economic engine. The flexibility of space that the facilities within Longwood's industrial parks offer and numerous Class B/C class office buildings assist the entrepreneur in starting and growing a successful business.

In the most recent Central Florida Office Market Report for 1Q 2017(PDF) it was noted that as the Class A vacancy rates continue to drop, demand for space in Class B is expected to increase. Class B inventory led the way in positive absorption with 270,158 square feet(sf).The limitation of space below the 15,000 square foot is also driving investors toward Class B/C office space. The ability to meet both of these demands is a strength of Longwood. For more information on available properties see Available Properties.

According to the Central Florida Industrial Market 1Q 2017, fundamentals in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties remained strong in the first quarter of 2017. Direct vacancy rates decreased 0.5 percentage points from 5.3% in 4Q 2016 to 4.8% at the end of 1Q 2017.
