Commercial Real Estate
The San Francisco commercial real estate market comprises approximately 75 million square feet, primarily located on the east side of the City and divided into two sections: the North side of Market Street (NOMA) and the South side of Market Street (SOMA). These two distinct areas are divided into approximately nine sub markets, each with specific characteristics. Jackson Square, for instance, has mostly older, mid-rise and low-rise buildings. The central business district (CBD) houses extensive office and retail space. The original Financial District also comprises one of these sub markets. With only two parcels of open land remaining in the North of Market Street area. Most of the City’s recent growth has occurred in SOMA driven by the technology sectors including Mission Bay and the Life Science sector.
