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 Montgomery Street in the heart of the Downtown Financial District, a neighborhood that serves as the main central business district – where all of the city’s Fortune 500 companies are located. Its central location is marked by the cluster of high-rise towers in the area east of Kearny Street, south of Washington Street, west of the Embarcadero (which rings the waterfront) and north of Market Street. Montgomery Street itself is often referred to as “Wall Street of the West” and is the traditional heart of the district.

Within a rock’s throw, you will find fine dining and hotels, the Moscone Convention Center, Union Square and other retail centers, Embarcadero, the San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace and even a 24 Hour Fitness right across the street. Our building’s full-service concierge is also able to offer assistance with a variety of services. Additionally, we realize how important public transportation is, so we specifically chose a building that is directly connected to BART, which includes lines from both Oakland and San Francisco International Airports.
