The Rent Is...

New, 5 comments

Everyone's favorite NIMBY, C.W. Nevius, reports today how commercial rents are rising in the Haight. Storefronts are emptying along Haight Street - the posh Villains Vault, for one, will be moving somewhere cheaper - and merchants are asking for a "reset" of rent prices that have reportedly kept rising despite the recession. There are vacant storefronts all over the city (and just down the road), so maybe the rent is just too damn high. [SF Gate/photo via Erik Wilson]
