San Francisco brokers must be part of the permit streamlining process


Supervisors Katy Tang and Ahsha Safai have introduced legislation that is intended to attract small businesses to their respective districts by shortening the entitlement and construction permitting process. The legislation proposes to create a two-year program that will allow small businesses to set up their businesses and streamline the permitting process that, currently, can take six months or more to complete. The legislation would also allow a reduction in the time required for permits necessary for a storefront to switch from one use to another — if a laundromat were converted into a restaurant, for instance. This currently requires a Zoning Change of Use. Further, in many cases, uses are not allowed without securing a Conditional Use Permit (CUP). Tenants are often required to secure both permissions, a very expensive and time-consuming process.

How San Francisco’s Startup Culture is Changing Tenant Representation

Over the past 20 years, San Francisco has pivoted from a conventional banking and financial hub with classical architecture and conservative offices to today’s technology capital with innovative and creative office environments.

SF needs creativity to meet Eastern Neighborhoods' office needs


Afters years of analysis, the City Planning Department is actively implementing the Eastern Neighborhoods Area Plans approved in 2009. It is notifying building owners who leased industrial spaces to office tenants without formally converting their properties to office use that they must evict their tenants or be fined $250 a day. There is still an opportunity to reverse the Planning Department's changes to zoning and permit regulations so that the law benefits both small building owners and their tenants.

If landlords are fined or forced to evict their tenants, it will have an enormous impact on small building owners as well as many tech office tenants.
