This event is exclusively for SPUR business members and invited guests. Please contact April Gubatina at [email protected] for information on how your organization can get involved and support our work.

San Francisco’s economic recovery is progressing more slowly than other urban centers across the globe. Factors like a low percentage of employees returning to the office, a 22.4% commercial vacancy rate in Q4 of 2021, and less tourism are key contributors to the slower levels of market growth. The decline in major drivers of the city’s economy has wide-reaching implications, particularly in downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods.

Join us for a presentation by Ted Egan, San Francisco’s Chief Economist, and Alexander Quinn, JLL’s Director of Research for Northern California, to learn the specifics about San Francisco’s economic trends and potential solutions for current challenges. Sujata Srivastava, SPUR’s San Francisco Director, is moderating the discussion.

  Registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending please contact April Gubatina at [email protected]
