San Francisco, officially the City and County of San Francisco, is the cultural, commercial and financial center of Northern California and the only consolidated city-county in the state. Further, it is the most densely settled large city in California and the second most densely populated major city in the United States.

San Francisco is the heart of the Bay Area, a nine-county major metropolitan area with a population of more than 8.6 million, making it the fifth most populous market in the nation. The population is highly educated and ethnically diverse. This major west coast market includes many corporate headquarters (including major banking institutions, Levi Strauss & Co,. Gap, Inc.,, Dropbox, Reddit, Square, Inc., Dolby, Airbnb, Weebly, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Yelp, Pinterest, Twitter, Uber, Mozilla, Wikimedia Foundation and Craigslist), small businesses and technology-based companies. In addition, San Francisco has many biotechnology firms and healthcare companies that encompass a variety of specialties.

The city itself combines sheer physical beauty, cultural diversity, leisure and recreational offerings, and an ideal climate. From the famous icon of the Golden Gate Bridge to the exquisite art galleries at the SFMOMA, San Francisco takes pride in its unrivaled attractions, renowned museums, and unique neighborhoods, which are treasures of their own. The iconic city has several nicknames, including “The City By the Bay” and “The Paris of the West.”

Nichols Research is on Sansome Street, nestled in a characteristic part of the  Financial District, a neighborhood that serves as the central business district. Its central location is just blocks from the Embarcadero, the promenade that flows along the San Francisco Bay waterfront, and is within walking distance of the iconic cable cars, Transamerica Pyramid, and the famed North Beach neighborhood.

Within a rock’s throw, you will find local sustainable casual restaurant options,  exquisite dining, boutique and five-star hotels, the Embarcadero Center, Chinatown, North Beach, The San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace, and a Planet Fitness located right in the ground level or our building. Additionally, we realize how important public transportation is, so we specifically chose a building that is closely connected to BART, which includes lines from both Oakland and San Francisco International Airports.
