Florence Oregon Business Guide

About Us

Florence Oregon is a quickly growing community on the central Oregon Coast, conveniently located to provide both the quality of small-town coastal life and easy access to the big-city amenities of Eugene and the I-5 corridor. 

Forward-looking land use planning has created an optimum balance between tourism, retirement living and business development.  Community leaders carefully designed areas for tourism growth in Old Town, business growth in the new Pacific View Business Park, and retail stores along Hwy 101.  The new Boardwalk and Siuslaw waterfront area is designed to allow a casual strolling and seating area with room for 10-12 developments of shops, diners or other marina based uses.   The Pacific View development features 55 acres of full-service sites, including fiber optic high speed.  The neighboring world class Sandpines Golf Resort and spectacular ocean views makes this an ideal location for company headquarters, financial services, or any number of customer service industries. 

Florence neighborhoods provide several cozy independent living facilities along with gated modular home communities.  Condos along the Siuslaw River and in charming Old Town are among the new residential developments that make Florence inviting and affordable to retirees.  The largest employer in the city, Peace Health Assoc, provides both a stable job base as well as trusted health care to the growing retiree population.

Florence is a unique location for conventions, trade shows and business meetings as well. The  Florence Event Center offers quality services, as well as Driftwood Shores located directly on Heceta Beach.. Florence’s many fine hotels regularly accommodate business functions as well.
