At this workshop we will introduce you to SFMade’s “Places to Make” Program, which assists manufacturers in finding production space in San Francisco. We will illustrate what kinds of spaces are available for manufacturing, where they are, and what you need to do to secure them. Whether you are a new company, in the process of expanding, or need to relocate, this workshop will help you navigate your options and point you in the right direction.
We will cover:
- Which San Francisco neighborhoods are zoned for your work: PDR (Production, Distribution, and Repair), and what that means to you.
- Manufacturing clusters and hubs
- Lease negotiations
- Planning and permitting info
- Creative uses of space, including co-locating with compatible companies
