Office Space for Rent in San Francisco

It is hard to find great office space for rent in San Francisco.


We can help. Our local tenant reps know the market thoroughly and will leave no option undiscovered! All at no cost to you.

With over 76 million square feet of office space, you’d think that there would be a lot of available office space in San Francisco. Unfortunately if you are looking for San Francisco office space, what you will find is a very tight market, especially in many of the more popular areas of the city like South of Market (SOMA), the Financial District and Union Square. Not only that, but the office space that is available comes with a very high price tag in the $50+ per square foot (per year) price range. So, for a 2,000 square foot office you’d most likely find yourself paying in excess of $100,000 per year.

The main San Francisco office space submarkets include:

Financial District
South Financial District
South of Market
Union Square
Civic Center
North Waterfront
Potrero Hill
Mission District

Making mistakes in your selection of office space in SF is not something that you would want to do. It can get very expensive quickly. It is easy to avoid. Just make sure you take advantage of having a qualified LOCAL San Francisco office space tenant rep by your side. It won’t cost you anything to engage their services. They will make sure that you get to see all of you viable options, avoid mistakes and will help you negotiate the best possible deal available for the office space you select. Trying to do it yourself is not only time consuming, but risky. Keep in mind that listing agents and owners do this for a living and do not have your best interest in mind. You need someone on your side who also does this on a day-to-day basis

This is where our services come in. We will connect you with a San Francisco office space specialist to assist you. We have some of the top local tenant reps in our network to help you. All you need to do is complete the short form at the top of this page, telling us a little bit about what you are looking for and we will find the rep best suited for your needs and have them contact you right away. There is no obligation and as we said before, it won’t cost you anything. It is a no lose proposition and we are confident you will be glad you found us. We have been doing this online since 1995 and during that time have located the best tenant reps in San Francisco.

San Francisco is a great place to locate your office space. The public transportation system, Known as the Muni, is especially good with the combination of BART, busses, and streetcars. Adding taxis to the mix, it will allow your employees to easily get around carless and saves on parking costs.

While the cost of office space for rent in San Francisco is expensive, it is still worth it. Let us help you find your next office!

SF is home to six fortune 500 companies, at least 1900 technology companies, and more than 120 biotech companies. It's no wonder San Francisco is called "the Innovation Capital of the World."
