This is a garage plus two story space on the back half of a SOMA 40x80 mixed-use lot. The space for rent is a building set back from the street, behind a building with a ground floor commercial office and a 2nd floor residental apartment. Access to the space passes directly under the residential apartment's back window. The owner, Michael, owns both buildings on the lot and built the place from scratch three years ago. Michael does not live on the lot.

The interior space is organized as two large rooms, roughly a total of 1000 to 1100 sq. ft. usable. Bathroom and shower included.

Andy notes:

"It's somewhat difficult to imagine how to divide this space into the rooms we want. The upstairs is hard to subdivide, because of the raked ceiling; if there are people playing video games up there, I'm not going to be able to get work done upstairs. I'm more excited by the idea of several smaller rooms rather than two giant rooms.

The dealbreaker, I fear, is that late-night access is very likely to disturb the residential tenants in the front building."

Other notes -

- water included, all other utilities extra
- front: intercom, garage door w/opener
- no alarm system, we could add one
- two car tandem drive-through garage
- rear patio, all concrete.
- two sets of double-doors; locking security is somewhat of a concern
- concrete floor in downstairs
- bathroom (with shower, IIRC.)
- upstairs: carpeted; all one big open space, gabled ceiling down to
  ~9ft at the side walls.  windows only in front (facing southwest).
- building footprint quoted at 20'x30'.  Upstairs less usable space due
  to stairwell.
- built "three years ago" according to owner.  Looks like wired with
  cat5 (but with rj11 throughout).
- Power is great -- I counted 12 20A circuit breakers, plus two 30A breakers labelled "220V".  
  (I'm not even sure how you could wire all of that into two rooms, but whatever.)
- Building has own boiler and heating; AC consists of two fans but we could

possibly add a wall unit later

- No furnishings, previous tenant may sell desks if desired
- Owner is ok with roof antennas if they do not dig into roof
