OC Developer Mike Harrah – Raw and Unplugged

An exclusive two-part interview like you’ve never seen him before

Mike Harrah is definitely not your typical developer. Along with building what ultimately will become the tallest building in Orange County, he also is a stunt pilot for Hollywood, car collector, competitive racer, and the designer of a $7 million truck called Thor. He recently was honored with the “Entrepreneur of the Year “award by Orange County Business Journal, where he was introduced as a “visionary in transforming the Orange County skyline” and as a “leading Orange County philanthropist.”

In this exclusive two-part interview by OC World Executive Producer Scott Hays, Harrah talks about One Broadway and his other properties in Santa Ana, about his legacy as an Orange County developer, and about why everything that he builds or creates has to be larger than life.
