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.
