Landlords Trying to Impress

With the influx of tech company tenants, San Francisco commercial landlords are desperately trying to keep up, spending upwards of $400 million to make their office buildings cool enough for techies. Common renovations include the removal drop ceilings and cubicle walls, and exposing the structural and electrical systems - see, now it's like a hip industrial loft! A Cushman & Wakefield report found that 12% of office space in downtown has been tech-ified, now that tech companies make up 40% of office space users in the market. According to the SF Business Times, historic and boutique office buildings, like 500 Sansome and 101 New Montgomery, have had the largest amount of conversions. [SF Business Times/Photo: Shutterstock]
