My business, currently located in the North Valley, is looking to move down to Nob Hill. Ideally, we would need about 600 square feet and a storefront.
If you know of anyone looking to transfer a lease or a space opening up, we'd love to talk to you.
I would highly recommend you get to know the neighborhood association folks:
If you're new to the area they could be a tremendous asset to you, not only in maybe knowing the buzz and being able to help you find a location, but by being involved in the association you'll be sure to know about City plans for the neighborhood (ie. Lead/Coal construction).
Try contacting the Nob Hill Main Street Organization.
Jim Neustel who runs Peacecraft is chairperson of the Board.
It would be great to have more retail to balance the restaurants.
I am a member of the Nob Hill Main Street group that deals with economic development in Nob Hill. I made a request to send you a personal message, if you accept I can send you more information about Nob Hill rental spaces.
I run a one-woman web development shop and art studio. Currently I rent a space across from the Fruit Basket next to Sophia's where Obama was on 4th street.
