Come July 20, 2015, we are moving to a new office space in the Financial District at 255 California Street, on the 6th floor. The move is precipitated by the end of our lease at 405 Howard Street and a lack of additional space in our current building to accommodate our growth. The new space on California Street will continue our same standard of LEED Gold premises and will also include a number of sustainability upgrades, which we can’t wait to unveil in July once the design and remodel is complete.
