Oddfellows building, 7th and Market St.
This afternoon I visited the basement of the Oddfellows building, at the corner of Market and 7th St.
* available starting November (vacant now, unclear why the delay) * quoted at 9ksf * asking somewhere around $0.50/sf/mo * newly painted, 1 bath newly built * 6 story building + basement (we're looking at the basement) * concrete floors, concrete walls * 8' clear to the beams / ducts, 10' to the ceiling in many areas * fluorescent lights installed (not the worst, not the best) * basically no natural light or windows * separate entrance from rest of building (not entirely private, but mostly) with key access * elevator available for move-in/move-out (with operator!) * Cingular GSM cell on building, equipment in locked closet in basement * fairly good electical, upgrades possible * floor floods about one year in three with 1"-6" of water * building manager onsite 3 days / week * about 80 feet from Civic Center BART (closer than 83c, if possible) * scary-ass neighborhood though not as bad as 6th/Market * late night food available nearby * fabulous period details in elevator and stairwell * crazy secret societies upstairs * no kitchen * reasonable ventilation (all new HVAC throughout) * 2 egress exits
There are definitely pluses and minuses, but it's an impressive square footage for an absurdly low $/sf rate. We're going to have another viewing next week, either Wednesday or Thursday around 4PM; please email me off-list if you're interested in attending.
