Climb’s New Mid-Market Office is Launched!

Climb Real Estate is truly the most innovative real estate company I know of anywhere in Northern California and possibly in the country. I am constantly blown away by new ideas, apps/platforms, and ways of “seeing” the business of real estate that Climb brings to the table.

One such idea is a work space, or, “Lab”. It’s a combination of real estate office shared with other companies in the very successful WeWork concept at 25 Taylor Street in San Francisco. It’s also a place where Climb’s Director of Technology, Mark Choey, and the team create new technology to help those interested in buying, selling, or just staying current in the industry by way of inventions like Explore, Climb’s custom search platform. This space is also about design. Part of what makes Climb so special is its desire to stay connected to people visually by way of amazing aesthetics in furniture and architecture.

Come take a tour of our new office in Mid-Market. You’ll find me there during the week doing deals, making great connections with the folks who share space with us, and just enjoying the beauty of the space. This place is amazing!

 If you’d like a tour of the space, please contact Gabriel at gabriel@climbsf.com or 415-562-6999.

New Ideas for Using Idle Buildings in San Francisco

A whole new take on who and how our citizens are helping to plan out areas of San Francisco that need the help.

“Civic innovators” are coming up with new ideas for using idle buildings in San Francisco. Also called “civic hackers,” they are socially-minded citizens who want to improve their city yet work outside of develpment firms and city planning departments.

San Francisco’s Mid-Market area was a perfect target, with multiple vacant buildings lining the city’s main thoroughfare while the area is under redevelopment. Civic innovators at last year’s Creative Currency hackathon came up with ways to use this inactive space by creating an online platform to connect the building’s owners to entrepreneurial renters who could use short-term leases to jumpstart their businesses, host gallery shows, or just have fun.

“A cafe popped up at an SF Chronicle newsstand kiosk hosting a bike-repair station by Huckleberry Bicycles; an outdoor sidewalk market displayed wares from local artisans and shopkeepers; a sidewalk came alive with a mobile library in collaboration with the San Francisco Public Library; a yoga class took place in the GAFFTA office; and people let loose at a game night in the commissary kitchen at SF FoodLab. Over 500 people attended, and that stretch of Market Street felt alive. Local business owners and residents alike said they wanted to see the street charged with so much energy more often.” –Emily Eisenhart, The Bold Italic
