It’s a legendary place. You know you wanna.
Here’s the deal, according to Craigslist:
We are three women looking for a new officemate to share our unique space inside an incredibly unique arts collective space located in the Mission District. You are a full- or part-time creative freelancer type person, but we’re also open minded.
The shared space is an open 25″ x 10″ room with two white walls, one bright sea green wall, and one black wall. We have built three desks into the space using redwood and welded rebar. We also created a small chill space with two chairs, a coffee table, a record player, and a bar set-up. We’d love your creative input and help in finishing the design of the space, if that’s something that interests you.
We are not directly inside the arts space but rather right next door to it. We are considered part of the community and have access to the shared space inside, including a magical events space and kitchen/bar area. Other tenants include filmmakers and a community radio station. On the first floor is a gallery space that is currently being built out. Our space is on the second floor and there is a working elevator.
I’m sure you can hear the sirens. (Photo by Mike Chino.)

I’m a Mission resident living at 16th and Capp. I was walking my dog last night by the new giant residential place that’s opening up on the corner of Van Ness and 15th (giant gray horrible ugly building across the street from the artist’s billboard that reads: “Sell Your Hopes”) and saw the property owner showing another businessman around the building. As my dog was pooping on the sidewalk, I heard him say, “In the commercial space, we are either going to lease to a Starbucks or a pizza joint.”
My jaw dropped.
If a Starbucks opens here, I will probably commence looking for an apartment in another neighborhood.
