Our new address: 545 Sansome Street, Suite 850, San Francisco, CA 94111
When our last five year lease for our San Francisco Market street location expired, our landlord proposed very nearly doubling the rent. Although we loved being centrally located and smack dab in the middle of the Giants biennial World Series parade route, we knew it was probably time to move. In days of yore (say 4 or 5 years ago), before the San Francisco techie invasion, the logical place for us to look would have been in the industrial south of Market area (otherwise known as the A-E ghetto). Times have changed. Class A office rents south of Market there have now shot up to the $85 to $120/SF range.
So now, like many of our fellow designer types, we are slumming it with the bankers in the financial district in the Transamerica Pyramid office complex where the rents are in the still high but less ridiculous $55 to $85/SF range. We have signed a five year lease not on the parade route but with significantly increased space to allow for future growth. Feel free to stop by and say hello!
