Beginning in late July our official headquarters will be 543 Howard St., San Francisco, which is between 1st and 2nd streets. We'll be moving from our location in Belmont where we've been for the past year and fulfilling my original vision of OSAF being San Francisco-based. We want to thank to our gracious hosts at Reactivity in Belmont who have been sharing their network, kitchen, and conference rooms.
In addition to OSAF, the 543 Howard location will be home to three other non-profit organizations undertaken by me or my wife, Freada Kapor Klein, or both of us. These are The Level Playing Field Institute, The IDEAL Scholars Fund, and the Mitchell Kapor Foundation. All in all, there will be 20+ people, including shared aministrative staff, occupying the top floor of the building, which is a newly renovated warehouse. We think there will be good chemistry to have folks from multiple organizations interacting with each other on a regular basis.
543 Howard is the first "green" office building in San Francisco, which is part of its appeal. It's also a dog-friendly building, which will have a special dog run on the roof and dog-friendly lease terms.
