small units,

“ADUs” have had trouble getting traction in the Bay Area as a housing solution, but a host of new players and approaches are trying to turn promise into progress BY BLANCA TORRES

or a few years, Debbie and Stephen Sharratt contemplated adding a backyard cottage to their Sunnyvale home. Juggling careers and raising two young kids, the couple did not have much time to pursue the idea. That is until a few months ago, when they teamed up with a Soup, an East Palo Alto-based nonprofit. It helped them design a unit and hooked them up with Modern Empathy, a Berkeley-based pre-fabricated home builder. Construction on the 440-square-foot, one-bedroom house will take shape over the next few months. “We think (a backyard house) is beneficial to us and beneficial to the community, and it seems financially sustainable over the long term,” Debbie Sharratt said. “The Bay Area needs more housing, and this is a pretty easy way to do it.” California politicians and housing advocates have long trumpeted adding accessory swelling units (ADUs) as a key strategy that could put a dent in the state’s housing shortage by spurring the construction of hundreds of thousands

of affordable new homes. They point to cities like Vancouver, where more than a third of single-family homes have secondary units. The Bay Area Council, a policy and advocacy group funded by businesses, estimates that the region could add 400,000 ADUs if a quarter of Bay Area homeowners built them. During the past two years, the California State Legislature passed a handful of laws to expand and streamline city approvals of ADUs, which are separate homes attached or detached from a single-family home. They are more commonly known as in-law units, granny flats and backyard cottages. Whether their potential will become a reality in California is largely unknown, but early results are discouraging. Various barriers have acted as a dam holding back what experts thought would be a flood of new housing and turned secondary units into a mere trickle. Since 2016, new applications for ADUs soared across the state in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. Nonetheless, new applications total only a few thousand

and only a small fraction of those have been built. Now a fledgling ecosystem of consultants, nonprofits, contractors, financial institutions and manufactured home producers is sprouting up to help homeowners overcome those challenges. “For a consumer, building an ADU is a daunting task. How do I get started? Who do I need to hire? That piece is overwhelming,” said Steve Vallejos, head of Valley Home Development Corp., a company that specializes in building ADUs.

Barriers to entry The promise of ADUs was that homeowners could add a small apartment then sit back and reel in extra cash to offset their mortgages. ADUs would offer low-cost options for renters. That scenario sounds enticing, but in reality, building an ADU is complicated, costly and time-consuming.

FROM MANY TO FEW In San Francisco, ADU applications spiked to 384 in 2016 and 593 in 2017 — but only 40 were built in those two years.

By customizing fabricated home kits and building others at his own small factory in Fairfield, Steve Vallejos thinks he can bring the cost of ADUs way down: “We’re trying to create a turnkey, cookie-cutter option for the consumer.” Inset: One of Valley Development’s units and its Fairfield factory.

“We are asking homeowners who have never done construction jobs before to become housing developers,” said Kol Peterson, author of “Backdoor Revolution: The Definitive Guide to ADU Development.” Experts estimate that an average ADU costs $150,000 to $200,000 all told. Costs vary depending on the size, design, site constraints and city fees and permits, which alone can run from under $10,000 to up to $50,000, Peterson said. The top barriers include access to financing and cumbersome city regulations, according to a recent study from the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at the University of California, Berkeley. “The rise in applications doesn’t necessarily mean that the units get built,” said David Garcia, who authored the study. “The longer it takes, the more people will give up.” In San Francisco, ADU applications

spiked to 384 in 2016 up from 41 in 2015, but only 23 were built in 2016. In 2017, 593 applications came in, but only 17 were built. So far this year, 32 ADUs have been completed. In late August, San Francisco Mayor London Breed issued an executive order requiring the city to process ADU applications within four months and simplify permits. Close to 900 applications sit in limbo as city departments have disagreed on how to apply safety and building codes. “We’re seeing a gap that needs to be bridged between what the rules are and education and knowledge at the city level,” Vallejos said. Some cities are taking steps to streamline the ADU process, such as offering checklists and free consultations and reducing fees and restrictions, Garcia said. The City of Fremont, for example, offers expedited permits for ADUs if they

measure under 750 square feet. On the financing side, homeowners usually have to use savings or borrow by tapping equity in their home. Taking on additional debt nearing $200,000 or more is a turnoff for some homeowners. In practice, those upfront costs mean that people building ADUs tend to be well-off homeowners. Most use them to house family members rather than rent them out because they don’t need the extra income, Garcia said. Homeowners who could use rental income to afford their mortgage payments often don’t have the equity or borrowing power to build one. Lenders such as Umpqua Bank, Bank of the West and Fannie Mae have loans that cater to ADUs and in some cases allow borrowers to use future rental income as leverage. Some cities and nonprofits are looking at how to provide low-cost financing options as well.

Removing roadblocks Nonprofit Soup created a program called Blocks that provides project management and helps line up financing in exchange for a commitment to rent the ADU at below-market rates for three years. The Sharratts learned about Soup because they are friends with the founder, Josh To, who went through an arduous journey to put a two-bedroom ADU in his backyard in Menlo Park. It took more than a year to secure city approval and cost $250,000. The Sharratts expect their ADU to come in at around $180,000 and take less than a year to complete. “They are pretty much doing everything for us,” Stephen Sharratt said. “They do the project management, get quotes, interface with contractors, handle the permitting. They helped us decide what kind of unit to build. Any roadblock we’ve hit, they helped us get around it.” So far, the Blocks program has completed one project with 20 more in the pipeline. “It’s one thing to build a unit and it’s another to make it affordable,” said Pam Dorr, who runs the Blocks program. “We’re really connecting with people who have a full understanding of how difficult this housing economy is and want to help people.” Dorr, who recently bought and renovated a home in Half Moon Bay, saw first hand the incredible demand for ADUs — or any housing, really — when she posted an ad on Craigslist to rent out the 400-square-foot, one-bedroom backyard cottage on her property. The first response came from a school teacher who wanted to share the space with three other teachers using bunk beds. A trio of seniors also inquired. Finally, Dorr chose a young couple expecting their first baby. “The crisis is harder than I expected,” she said. Shift toward pre-fab Twelve years ago, Vallejos of Valley Home Development Corp. picked up on a growing need for secondary units to accommodate elderly parents or adult children. In the years since, his company has built close to 100 ADUs throughout Northern California. His company does some onsite construction along with factory-built homes and prefabricated home “kits” that are assembled on site. The company used to contract out most of its manufacturing, but is now setting up a small factory in Fairfield. Vallejos expects to complete 30 to 40 ADUs this year and about 100 next year. “We’re trying to create a turnkey, cookie cutter option for the consumer,” he said. “It’s a one-stop-shop solution.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 6




Bidding ADU: Backers wait for small units to take off CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5

Valley Home charges a flat development fee of $9,800 for design, planning and securing city approvals. In addition to the cost of the home, homeowners also pay for other expenses such as the foundation and utility hookups. The company offers nine different pre-fab models ranging from 280 square feet to 1,000 square feet and priced from about $85,000 to $400,000. The company’s most popular designs are in the 300 to 600 square foot range priced under $175,000. This month, Valley Home will debut a new option, a 150-square-foot micro studio starting around $50,000. “We developed patterns based on the ADUs we’ve done in the past and then create prototypes,” Vallejos said. “The background work has been done. It’s a lot easier because people can look at this range of plans and pick the one they want.” Only about a quarter of Valley Home’s clients plan to rent out their ADUs. The majority, Vallejos said, are for family members. The latter group includes Mike Burbank of Novato, who commissioned Valley Home to build a 365-squarefoot, detached guesthouse next to his 2,400-square-foot home that abuts the Marin Country Club. “My wife and I are both 83 years old,” Burbank said. “We figured one day we would need a caretaker. We don’t want to leave our home or move into assisted living.” In the meantime, friends or family have stayed in the unit at least once a week. The Burbanks outfitted the space with a bed, sitting area, kitchenette, full bathroom and a balcony overlooking the golf course. Since finishing the unit in March, people have asked about renting it. One even offered $2,000 per month. “I don’t want a tenant,” Burbank said. “This is strictly for personal use.” Burbank estimates he spent a total of about $162,000 on the unit, which took about 11 months to complete. The approval process took about six months peppered with what Burbank called “bureaucratic (expletive).” Because he’s retired, he had the time to “pound on desks” to secure city permits to start construction, which took about three months to complete. When asked what advice he would give to other homeowners considering an ADU, he said, “hire Valley Home Development.”

Rethinking housing Another manufacturer, Austin-based Kasita, started up a few years ago and released its first model — a 352-squarefoot unit that features high ceilings, a queen-size mattress, smart technology tools and appliances. “The intention of Kasita is to rethink

Like most homeowners who have built ADUs, Mike Burbank says it’s for his use, not for renting out.




how we use space and how housing can better fit into the space around us,” said Jeremy Klitzman, who manages sales for Kasita. The total cost with installation and shipping is around $164,000 in California. So far, only one Kasita, a demonstration home, has been installed in the state. Klitzman suggests that buying an ADU should become as easy as buying a car where consumers could go to a “dealership,” pick out the home they want and then have it installed on their property. “You don’t need to be a car expert to buy a car,” he said. In contrast, building an ADU often turns into a crashcourse in housing development for

homeowners. “You need a contractor or a point person who can manage the process,” he said. “It’s a huge opportunity that is really untapped.” In California, Kasita’s point person is Corbin Jones, founder of Ovid Design and Development, who specializes in small housing developments including ADUs. Jones has a background in both architecture and real estate finance, which allows him to manage an ADU from start to finish. “As soon as I saw the legislation, I knew ADUs were going to be big,” Jones said. He calls the laws the “democratization of development” because they give homeowners more control over their

land such as going from a single home to a duplex. With an ADU, homeowners can stay in their homes or downsize into the ADU and rent out the main house, Jones said. That’s attractive for long-time homeowners who want to hold onto tax advantages from California’s Prop. 13, which caps property tax increases. Even if the process for building ADUs speeds up, it could take decades to see the potential realized. Garcia of the Terner Center said it’s difficult to project how many ADUs it would take to temper the region’s housing shortage. “Anything is better than the production we’re seeing now,” he said. “Even if we only see a couple of percentage points growth, it’s still better than last year.”

Mall pushes for 1,500 homes East Bay’s NewPark Mall proposes residential buildings next to stores As malls across the country struggle to stay afloat in the face of stiff competition from online retailers, NewPark Mall in Newark is pushing ahead on a $1 billion redevelopment project. Brookfield Retail Properties, which took over NewPark when it acquired the mall’s previous owner, Rouse Properties, in 2016, wants to redevelop the mall and surrounding land into a vibrant community of apartments, parks, hotels, office space and event centers. “We want to see the mall repositioned to take it to the next level,” said Terrence Grindall, Newark’s assistant city manager. The Newark City Council approved in April the NewPark Mall Specific Plan, which allows for the following, including what’s currently on the site: n 1,800 housing units (281 units completed) n 1.47 million square feet of retail n 527,000 square feet of office space n 1,040 hotel rooms (700 new and 340 existing) The plan comes amid declining revenue for the mall. In 2006, the mall’s revenue exceeded $200 million, but that fell to $130 million by 2012, according to a city report. The city’s report did not list more recent figures. Brookfield declined to comment for this article. To try to boost revenue, Rouse spent around $64 million on a renovation in 2014, adding a restaurant pavilion, a 12-screen AMC Theatres complex, and tenants such as 24 Hour Fitness, John’s Incredible Pizza and H&M. Some residential and hospitality redevelopment has already wrapped up. D.R. Horton has built 281 homes in the Prima Residential Project. Two new hotels, Staybridge Suites and SpringHill Suites, are currently under construction and are slated to open



“Women need a place where we can show up and be ourselves. It’s exciting that the Wing is coming because it will create the demand for women-only co-working spaces.” IRIS KAVANAUGH, cofounder of Women Who CoWork, about the Wing, a high-profile women’s coworking space, which will open a San Francisco location in October. The company is a membership-only association that bills itself as a professional workspace and social club for women and non-binary individuals.

later this year or early next year. The mall now consists of 1.1 million square feet of retail space and 337,000 square feet of retail space on surrounding properties. When the redevelopment is done, the mall’s retail square footage will shrink. Newark city manager John Becker, Grindall and other officials say the key to the mall’s — and the city’s — revitalization can be found by tapping into the housing market, which is especially hot in the Bay Area. “(Newark) is uniquely positioned between employment hubs and is really at the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Jeff Aguilar, the vice chairman of Newark’s planning commission. “The city is primed for growth.”

Now that the specific plan has passed, developers can submit development proposals, which still need approvals. In addition to Brookfield, Seritage Growth Properties, a real estate investment trust that owns NewPark’s Sears and Macy’s stores, also wants to develop projects, said Grindall. He expects the buildout to take between five and eight years. Despite Newark’s convenient location alongside Interstate 880, between Silicon Valley and San Jose, it is not densely populated. If all 1,519 apartments are leased, the population of Newark would increase by 10 percent, Grindall said. “That will just breathe life and vibrancy into this area,” said Becker. — Emily Hoeven


SWISS INVESTOR SWOOPS IN TO BUY EAST BAY OFFICE BUILDINGS Properties: 1655 and 1755 Grant St., Concord Seller: Swift Real Estate Partners Buyer: Partners Group Price: $148 million Behind the sale: Concord, once considered a backwater office market, is now luring heavy-hitting international investors. Swift Real Estate Partners sold its last two buildings in the Swift Plaza to Partners Group, a Switzerlandbased private equity firm with $78 billion in assets under management, according to a source with knowledge of the deal. The purchase of the two buildings, which total 480,000 square feet, works out to about $308 per square foot. “For Concord, this is a big validation as an office market,” said Ed Del Beccaro, head of Transwestern’s East Bay offices, who was not involved in the transaction. The buildings are part of a 1.1 million-square foot, four-building, former Bank of America campus that Swift snapped up in 2011 for $88 million. The campus is a few

blocks from the Concord BART Station. Chris Peatross founded Swift in 2010 with a focus on a revamping underutilized properties, leasing them up and selling them off. He declined to comment for this article. After pumping in millions to spruce up the property, Swift sold Chris Peatross two buildings at 2001 Clayton Road and 2000 Clayton Road to DivcoWest in 2012 for $94 million. Swift rebranded the two Grant Street buildings as Swift Plaza and continued attracting new tenants including Wells Fargo, which leased up 282,238 square feet in 2016. The seller plans to stay on to manage the buildings for Partners Group. The buildings were 100 percent leased at the time of the sale. Breck Lutz and Alex Grell of Newmark Knight Frank’s Walnut Creek office handle leasing in the building.

Can new luxury Oakland apartment complex snag $8,000 for a townhouse? It used to be that $3,000 studios and $5,000 two-bedrooms were average rents for new apartments in San Francisco. Now those monthly rents are migrating to Oakland. A new development at 4901 Broadway in Oakland’s trendy Temescal neighborhood just hit the market with prices ranging from $2,950 per month for a 415-square-foot studio to $8,000 per month for a 1,300-square-foot, three-bedroom townhouse. The project, Baxter on Broadway, consists of 130 apartments and features a rooftop with a club room and barbecue pit, a bocce ball court, vegetable garden, dog run and pet grooming area. “Baxter on Broadway is a perfect combination of community and location,” said Jonathan Figone, district property manager at Legacy Partners, the company managing the development. The project sits within a mile of the Rockridge and MacArthur BART stations and retail strips along Telegraph and College avenues. A joint venture between apartment developer SRM Development and equity investor USAA Real Estate developed the project. Baxter on Broadway is one of several new apartment buildings coming online in Oakland. The city is dotted with cranes for projects that total 3,600 new homes after years of little to no construction. Most of the new housing is concentrated in Oakland’s downtown core and the former Auto Row area. The first homes are underway in the city’s largest project, the 3,100-unit Brooklyn Basin near the city’s waterfront. The influx of new homes comes at a time when rents have soared in Oakland. “Leasing began just a few weeks ago, and we’re already getting immense interest from prospective renters who currently live and work in all corners of the Bay Area,” Figone said. The median rent in Oakland is $2,935 per month, a 5.2 percent increase during the past year, compared with a median rent of $4,215 per month in San Francisco, a 1.1 percent increase compared with a year ago, according to apartment listing site HotPads. “The trends we’ve seen in San Francisco over the last few years are starting to shift to the East Bay,” said Jay Parsons, vice president of RealPage, a company that makes property management software for apartment landlords. The trends include a shift toward more high-end, luxury apartments that can command higher monthly rents. While developers have delivered several thousand new apartments in San Francisco during the last few years, that is just now happening in Oakland, Parsons said. At the same, construction and devel-

opment costs have gone up, meaning that developers target higher price points to justify new construction. “This new wave of construction reflects some catch up that is occurring in Oakland,” Parsons said. “These are high rents for Oakland, but they are substantially cheaper than a comparable apartment in San Francisco.”

THERANOPE Prominent, star-studded Theranos promised blood testing revolution. Instead, it’s on the verge of closing

Theranos Inc., the once high-flying company whose principals face federal fraud charges over its bloodtesting technology, reportedly will shut down after paying unsecured creditors with its remaining cash. The company — led by Stanford University dropout Elizabeth Holmes to a $9 billion valuation that dissipated when its technology couldn’t hold up to scrutiny — leaves behind yet-unresolved criminal and civil charges and a lesson in caution for investors and the media. Theranos CEO David Taylor wrote in an email to shareholders that Theranos breached a covenant of a $65 million loan it received last year from private equity firm Fortress Investment Group, the Wall Street Journal reported.

WHAT NOW? Theranos last year settled a lawsuit brought by onetime partner Walgreens but failed to make its scheduled $5 million payment in June 2018. Walgreens on July 2 again sued Theranos; that case remains open in U.S. District Court for Delaware. A criminal case by the Justice Department against former CEO Elizabeth Holmes and her former boyfriend/former President Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani is continuing. They pleaded not guilt to two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud.

Theranos could take months to shut down. Investment bank Jeffries Group LLC had contacted more than 80 likely buyers.

Most investor lawsuits have been settled. An action by Arizona’s attorney general also resulted in a settlement. Consumer lawsuits were dropped or consolidated.

Balwani is fighting civil charges brought by Securities and Exchange Commission; the case isn’t expected to go to trial until next year. Holmes and Theranos settled the SEC charges, with Holmes agreeing to pay a $500,000 penalty, forfeit her super-majority shares and is barred from being an officer or director of a public company for 10 years.


CHIEF CRISPR RESEARCHER TO LAUNCH NEW LAB AT GLADSTONE Jennifer Doudna, a pioneer of the revolutionary CRISPR genome-editing technology, will launch a lab at the Gladstone Institutes focused on new ways to apply it, including a first-of-itskind “genome surgery” approach to disease. Doudna will maintain her faculty positions at the University of California, Berkeley, and UCSF, and she will continue to lead the universities’ joint Innovative Genomics Institute. But the new appointment will expand on that role and pair Doudna with Gladstone senior investigator Dr. Bruce Conklin and the recently established Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology, led by Katherine Pollard. Snaring Doudna is on par with Gladstone a decade ago wooing Shinya Yamanaka, who engineered a way to induce mature stem cells to return to an embryonic-like state in which Jennifer Doudna researchers can manipulate them to become skin, heart or any other type of cells. Yamanaka went on to win the 2012 Nobel Prize for medicine or physiology, and several academic and biotech labs now work with so-called induced pluripotent stem cells. Doudna’s work on CRISPR, allowing scientists to make specific changes in the DNA of plants and animals without killing cells, offers similar visions for dramatically changing medical research and health care. A handful of companies are applying the technology to drug discovery and development, agriculture and more.

Waterfront view Restaurateurs step up to fill challenged Embarcadero space The Port of San Francisco has struggled to attract restaurants to fill two of its vacant waterfront spaces, but one local hospitality group is preparing to take on the challenge. Anchor Hospitality Group, a partnership among two Bay Area restaurateurs and Highway 1 Hospitality, has proposed a new Baja-inspired casual dining outpost at Pier 33 1/2. Dubbed PuertoSF, the proposed restaurant would be spearheaded by the team behind well-known concepts such as Nick’s Cove, The Cosmopolitan, the Social Club and Contrada. If approved, Anchor Hospitality Group said it is planning to invest about $1.8 million into PuertoSF. Its goal is to open by mid-2019. The port is expecting to approve the lease agreement sometime next month. In its proposal, the restaurant group said boats would be able to order from the restaurant’s dockside take-out counter, and pedestrians would be able to walk up to the grab-and-go window along the street.

‘Coming up with the capital improvement costs to open will be the biggest issue.” JAY EDWARDS, the S.F. port’s senior property

manager for Pier 33 1/2 and Pier 40

The restaurant would be open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, two happy hours and weekend brunch. A sample menu details pricing ranging from $10 for a small plate up to $40 for a steak dinner. The group was the only respondent to a request for proposals the Port released last year for vacant restaurant spaces at Pier 40 and Pier 33 1/2. The two spaces were previously occupied by Butterfly Restaurant and SB40. By October last year, both spaces had been vacated.

Under the proposed terms, the lease will be structured as a 10-year agreement with one fiveyear option to extend. Rent will be calculated as the greater of two amounts, either a $42-persquare-foot amount that will be increased annually by 3 percent, or a 7 percent portion of the tenant’s gross annual revenue. “The cost of building out space in San Francisco is expensive. (The Port doesn’t) have the resources or ability to (finance) that, so coming up with the capital improvement costs to open will be the biggest issue,” Jay Edwards, the port’s senior property manager for Pier 33 1/2 and Pier 40, previously said. Neither Mick Suverkrubbe nor Dena Grunt, the two restaurant partners, were available to comment. The Port of San Francisco did not respond to requests for comment.



STARTUP AIMS TO HELP RETAILERS BEAT AMAZON GO TO THE PUNCH It has been four years since Krishna Motukuri had his lightbulb moment about grocery checkout lines. But with Amazon Go’s looming arrival in San Francisco, he is stepping on the gas with his new checkout-free technology startup, Zippin. Since Motukuri and his two cofounders, Motilal Agrawal and Abhinav Katiyar, got started about two years ago, the market for cashierless retail systems has ballooned. According to Juniper Research, smart store technologies are expected to generate more than $78 billion in annual

transaction revenue by 2022, up from the expected $9.2 billion this year. Whether it’s through checkout apps or automatic scanning, more than 5,000 retail outlets are estimated to incorporate some form of retail technology over the next five years as businesses look for ways to both Krishna streamline the customer Motukuri experience and trim costs. “All of these stores are missing out on sales with customers who want things quickly,” said Motukuri. “Once you remove the biggest bottleneck, you’ll see a big drop in cost and a big increase in sales from customers who otherwise would have been deterred by long lines.”

After customers enter a shop by scanning a smartphone interface, overhead tracking cameras and shelf sensors automatically ensure they are charged for what they take from the shelves.

Making bank S.F. fintech gets OK to open coast-to-coast bank, but don’t bother looking for branches

Walsh: Varo Bank “represents the future of banking.”

San Francisco-based Varo Money received preliminary approval from federal banking regulators to start Varo Bank, the nation’s first all-mobile national bank. It’s a big step forward for both Varo and those that want banking to be more accessible and innovative. Getting approval to operate a national bank will allow Varo to do business in all 50 states vs. the state-bystate approval fintechs often undertake. “This is an historic moment and marks the start of a new era in banking,” Colin Walsh, co-founder and CEO of Varo Money, said in a statement. “We founded Varo because we saw that banks weren’t serving the majority of their customers very well, and we wanted to fix that. So we decided to build a bank from the ground up with the goal of improving consumers’ financial health through better technology and a more efficient business model.” Varo, founded in 2015, has raised more than $79 million in capital, led by Warburg Pincus and The Rise Fund, a global impact fund by private equity firm TPG. Varo plans to move its headquarters to the Salt Lake City area when it opens Varo Bank, most likely next summer. But the fintech will continue operating an “important office” in San Francisco, Walsh told the Business Times. He declined to discuss the size of the company’s workforce or the number of workers in the two cities. Varo Bank, which will have no brick-and-mortar branches, plans to add several new products after it opens, including offering certificates of deposit, credit cards and home equity loans, said Walsh, who doesn’t expect much industry opposition to Varo’s application to start a national bank. “It’s hard for them to argue with innovation,” said Walsh, a veteran of Wells Fargo and American Express. “Varo represents the future of banking.”

WHY SAN FRANCISCO’S “CACHET” KEEPS THIS STARTUP’S HEADQUARTERS HERE San Francisco-based Revel Systems plans to keep its headquarters in the Bay Area even though the CEO and half the executive team call Atlanta home. The company, with a workforce of almost 500 employees, makes a point-of-sale system for retailers based on Apple’s iPad. “San Francisco has a unique cachet around technology and (it’s) forward thinking. That’s a benefit to us. We have some great employees here that we would never want to lose,” Revel CEO Greg Dukat told the Business Times. “San Francisco has been the headquarters and will remain the headquarters, with a presence in Atlanta.” Revel is one of the Bay Area’s largest fintech employers, with 150 workers in San Francisco and plans to hire another 25-plus here. Last month, the company opened an office in Atlanta, where it employs about 40 people and expects that figure to grow to 170 over the next two to three years. Revel also has an office in Lithuania to provide after-hours customer support. Revel’s decision to keep its headquarters in San Francisco comes at a time when soaring housing costs, growing traffic congestion and rising taxes for some residents thanks to Trump’s tax overhaul are sparking concerns of a tax exodus out of California. Last month, San Francisco-based Wonolo, a staffing platform for hourly and temporary workers, told the Nashville Business Journal that it could eventually employ more people in Music City than it does at its San Francisco headquarters. “Nashville had the most unique flavor of all the cities we considered. Maybe it’s the culture or a buzz, but it’s the city people got the most excited about moving to or visiting,” said Wonolo co-founder and Chief Operating Officer AJ Brustein. Since taking the reins in February, Dukat has sharpened Revel’s focus on customers that are a little larger than the company’s roots in serving small businesses, with one to five locations. Now the company focuses on small business owners with track records of successfully operating as many as 20 locations, while an enterprise sales staff focuses on companies with 21 to more than 1,000 locations. “We realized we were trying to do too much for too many different constituents of all sizes and in all verticals. We’re looking to pivot into organizations that are of a bit larger size than we traditionally sold to, where there’s an underserved market in the mid-market, in verticals where we do well, such as coffee, pizza and snacks,” Dukat said. “It’s starting to pay nice dividends for us.”

“Customer communication has moved online,” says CEO Josh Melick.


Broadly makes customer online reviews easy for small businesses BY NATHAN FALSTREAU

For small businesses, navigating social media and online review sites can seem daunting. Broadly aims to bridge the gap via an online and mobile app that helps streamline customer reviews and communication through webchats. “We help with getting customer reviews online after a job or service is complete and then work to get that next customer for the business,” said Broadly co-founder and CEO Josh Melick. The inspiration for the company comes from growing up “in the field swinging hammers” with his father, who owns a contracting business, he said. Today, small businesses often lack the technology to properly compete, Melick argues. “Customer communication has moved online,” he said. Additionally, Melick said that small businesses “have to compete with larger companies and still meet the needs of the customers in the age of smartphones” where goods and services can be delivered “within a couple of days.” The product’s webchat function

LESSONS LEARNED Sell the dream internally and externally: “Businesses are made of people and you’ve got to solve for that,” said Melick. “Sell the things that people believe in, the mission of the company and the product. There has to be a reason why people should want to come into work every day.” Be rigorous as well as casual with hiring: “We have two components to our hiring practice, one rigorous and one casual,” Melick said. “We like to end an interview by grabbing a beer or attending a light happy hour. One side is to learn about their skills and the other is to determine if we could hang out with them a little bit.”

BROADLY HQ: Oakland What it does: Broadly helps busy small business owners stay connected with their customers through webchat and review management. Founders: Josh Melick and Assaf Arkin Founded: 2014 2017 revenue: $4.7 million 3-year revenue growth: 3,529 percent Funding: $20 million Employees: 100 Web site:

allows businesses to instantly qualify a customer when they visit its website. “A quick message can be sent to a customer with a quote, for example,” Melick said. “And the customer can ask questions like, ‘Are you free tomorrow to work on my car?’ and “Are you available to work on my taxes next week?’” Through the Broadly mobile app, employees can respond to customer’s questions and requests. Once a job or service has been completed, Broadly sends an email or text message to ask if the customer would like to recommend the business in what is billed as a “one-click process.” If a customer responds “yes,” Broadly directs them to online review sites they’re already active on and an automated review is posted. If the customer is unsatisfied with the service and they respond in the negative, they may leave a private message to the business, which allows for the issue to be addressed before negative reviews are published online. Broadly’s clients include contractors, salon owners, carpet cleaners, dentists and attorneys, among others. The company earns

revenue through monthly and yearly subscriptions, which average roughly $300 per month. Addon services such as promotion on social media sites, an email marketing program, and website hosting and design are available for an additional charge. “Broadly is probably the biggest, most effective marketing tactic we use and it’s really easy for business owners who don’t have time,” said Wesley Bloeme, owner of WiseGuys Pro-Wash in Atlanta. “In the first 60 days, we got 45 five-star, authentic reviews from our customers and it took me no extra time because Broadly was integrated with our (customer review management).” Broadly hit $4.7 million in 2017 revenue and has seen a 3,500 percent increase in revenue over the three years prior. Looking forward, Melick said that Broadly’s next version of its mobile app will include new tools for customers to communicate directly with a business’ employees when on a job site, for example. “Phone calls are hard for both parties,” he said. “Because people are in meetings, or on a roof working, or in a car. Messages are both fast and asynchronous.”

BUILDING A BUSINESS What fundraising challenges have you faced as a company? It was definitely more challenging to raise money when we started the company. It took quite a long time to convince more traditional investors, and we only raised a small seed round. But ultimately, when you have great traction and great growth, people start waking up and realize you’re onto something. Investors and bigger VCs finally woke up to the size of the opportunity around mindfulness and how fundamental things like stress and insomnia and mental health are to human life.


Alex Tew

In 2017, Calm was named Apple’s App of the Year — what does it take to create an app worthy of that status? For anyone creating a mobile app, an emphasis on simplicity and good design and a clear use case is really critical. For Apple, they want to shine a light on apps that can do good and have an impact on millions of people, and that was one reason that they chose us. Design and a great user experience are really super important.


HQ: San Francisco What it does: Calm is a software company that sells mindfulness meditation products. To date, its app has been downloaded more than 32 million times. It generates revenue through Founders: Michael Acton Smith and Alex Tew 2017 revenue: $22.3 million Three-year growth: 10,549 percent Background: Prior to starting Calm in 2012, Tew founded Million Dollar Homepage, Pixelotto and PopJam. Employees: 39 Funding: $27 million in Series A funding

As a serial entrepreneur, do you see yourself always launching companies and trying new things, or do you see yourself sticking with one thing? You never know. I love coming up with ideas, but for now, Calm is where all of my focus and energy is. Calm is something that I can imagine working on, potentially, for the rest of my life in some form. It’s that exciting and interesting and it’s that big of an opportunity that it’s probably one of those things that’s once-in-a-lifetime. We want to see where we can take it and how big and successful we can make it. What piece of advice do you have for other entrepreneurs? Get on and move as fast as you can and learn as quickly as you can: don’t have analysis paralysis. You need to just get out into the market and figure out what is going to work. I’ve made the mistake of just taking ages to launch something and then it hasn’t worked, and the best way is just to get out there and move really quickly and start testing in the marketplace. — Shane Downing

Recruiting, hiring and retaining talent can be difficult in the Bay Area — what’s working for you at Calm? For us, the ongoing challenge is recruiting phenomenal people. We’ve built an amazing team, but we’re in one of the most competitive cities for amazing talent anywhere in the world. It’s not easy. For us, the main thing is to continually invest in the product and make the company more successful. That attracts great people who want to come and work with us. If we have that same approach, we’ll naturally attract great people as we grow. CALM / LUCAS FLADZINSKI

t the intersection of Van Ness Avenue and Market Street, San Franciscans can hop between multiple Muni stops and — soon — rapid-transit bus lines. The corner is one of the city’s most transit-rich areas, but it also lacks a sense of place and cohesion. Today the city is trying to mold the area into a dense, vibrant neighborhood that takes advantage of its rich transit. Encompassing the patch from Octavia and Market Streets up to 10th and Market streets, plus Otis Street and parts of South Van Ness, the Hub will be upzoned to include up to 9,000 new housing units and over 50,000 square feet of public space like parks and plazas. But the city is juggling a complex panorama of projects with the need to push the plan through quickly as construction costs rise for developers. “The whole point of doing this rezoning is to increase housing capacity and address housing issues,” said Josh Switzky, the city’s land use program manager. Two projects, at 98 Franklin St. and 30 Van Ness Ave., will be approved in the rezoning plan itself. Related California and the French American International School are planning a 36-story tower with a high school on the bottom and apartments above at 98 Franklin — the first mixed-use project of its kind in San Francisco (see story below). Meanwhile, Lendlease Group’s development is moving ahead with 222,600 square feet of office space, 14,900 square feet of retail and 562 homes in a 49-story tower. Other developers in the area have moved forward with projects separately from the rezoning. Atlanta-based Integral was orig-

new type of mixed-use highrise is coming to San Francisco. Developer Related California and the French American International School are working on a plan to build a 36-story tower with a high school on the bottom and apartments on the top. While developers have built other types of mixed-use projects — housing and retail or housing and office space are common combinations — no one has built a highrise consisting of a school and housing in San Francisco. Related came to French American with the idea after completing a similar tower in New York City. “In cities like San Francisco and New York, where land is at a premium, the need to find more innovative ways to utilize that land is paramount,” said Matt Witte, Related’s senior vice president for acquisitions and development. Architecture firm SOM is designing the tower at 98 Franklin St. Plans call for a 365-foot tower with

five stories for the high school and 31 stories for 345 apartments. The school submitted preliminary plans for the tower in 2016 before it made the partnership with Related official. “We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Related to build a mixed-use project that will bring together great urban design, affordable housing and educational space in the heart of our city,” said Melinda Bihn, head of French American. The high school part of the tower will consist of mostly classroom space for up to 400 students. French American, a private school, operates a campus with close to 1,100 students in other nearby buildings on Oak Street. The idea of putting throngs of teenagers in the same building as apartment dwellers may sound odd, but Witte said it will be like have two buildings in one. The two uses will have separate entrances on different sides of the building. Also, after the building is completed, the school will own the land under the tower and the school portion of the building while Related will own the apartment portion. “What we’re doing with French American is the

future of development in San Francisco,” Witte said. Related pitched the idea to French American after taking on another development nearby at 1500 Mission St. that is under construction for 550 homes and a 16-story office building. Witte knew that the city was in the process of upzoning the surrounding neighborhood to encourage taller, denser high-rise buildings. That upzoning is part of a specific plan for an area known as the Hub around the intersection of Van Ness Avenue and Market Street. Specific plans outline zoning and development guidelines for a section of a city, but in this case, the Hub would include project approvals for 98 Franklin and another tower at 30 Van Ness. The Hub plan area encompasses one of the city’s most transit-rich zones with multiple bus lines and light rail connections, Witte said. “Congestion is at top of mind,” he said. “It only makes sense to put more housing where you have public transit.” Witte anticipates construction could start on 98 Franklin in 2020.

inally slated to include its mixed-use project at 33 Gough in the plan’s environmental review, but pulled out in February. The company wasn’t ready to commit to one site description yet, said President Jay Stark. Details of the mixeduse tower — which Integral is spearheading with City College of San Francisco — are still in flux as the developer debates the exact configuration of the tower. “We want to fill in the outer rim of the Hub, if you will, with both residential and commercial opportunities,” Stark said. “A lot of people are solely focused on residential.” Delays to the rezoning process have caused other developers to pursue their projects outside the specific plan. The city initially wanted to finalize the new plan by November, but now adoption is slated for January 2020. At 30 Otis, Align Real Estate’s project could have been upzoned further through the Hub, but the developer wanted to push ahead with plans faster than the city’s timeline allowed. Align could not be reached for comment. Meanwhile Crescent Heights, which is developing 980 units at 10 South Van Ness, is also pursuing a review process separately from the rezoning. But the delays aren’t just on the city,

‘Development stops because people don’t know what to put there. It can have the effect of freezing a neighborhood.’ DAVID PROWLER,

Development consultant and president of Prowler Inc. TODD JOHNSON

Lendlease is replacing this building at 30 Van Ness with office space and 562 homes. Switzky said: When the plan-specific project developers change anything in their projects, it can hold up the environmental impact review of the entire plan. This isn’t the first time the city has wanted to kickstart new housing in the Hub. When the 2008 recession hit, San Francisco had just rezoned a swath of surrounding land in the Market Octavia plan, including the Hub. But the tough financial environment meant that development didn’t get much traction. Part of the difficulty in rezoning whole neighborhoods is keeping prom-

ises to both the community and developers, said David Prowler, a development consultant and president of Prowler Inc. Although the city hopes to limit the riskiness of projects by involving the community in the planning process, developers often encounter new resistance later on. At the same time, developers may wait to submit projects because they’re not sure what the upzoning rules will ultimately contain. “Development stops because people don’t know what to put there,” Prowler

said. “It can have the effect of freezing a neighborhood where we want to encourage change.” Developers in the area are already finding new ways to combine housing and commercial uses, like Related’s high school and apartment project. “In cities like San Francisco and New York, where land is at a premium, the need to find more innovative ways to utilize that land is paramount,” Matt Witte, Related’s senior vice president for acquisitions and development, recently told the Business Times.

CPMC will be heart of corridor Van Ness sees new hospital, bus line, housing and medical office transformation BY MARY ANN AZEVEDO


n March, a $2 billion hospital will open on Van Ness Avenue and Geary Street, likely the most expensive medical project to ever open in the city. California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) campus promises to deliver more than health care. The neighborhood is seeing new medical office and housing developments to support the Sutter Health project. Construction of the 700,000-squarefoot hospital is nearly complete, and equipment and furnishings are being brought into the building, according to Larry Kollerer, director of Sutter Health’s West Bay region facility and property services. Before its doors have even opened, the hospital has already pumped $312 million into the city’s economy, estimated Kollerer, with about $86 million going toward union wages for San Francisco residents and $226 million toward doing business with local companies. This doesn’t include more than $70 million that was paid out for school taxes and various entitlement costs, he added. “The economic impacts are substantial, but the ongoing impact of patient care in a facility like this is amazing,” Kollerer said. “The biggest thing I see is San Francisco will be getting a brand new, fully equipped acute care hospital with all the latest improvements in healthcare right in the center of the city.” Other indirect impacts are the number of projects popping around the hospital, including the Bus Rapid Transit development under construction, a connected medical office building and several housing projects. The Van Ness Avenue Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will create dedicated bus lanes along two miles of Van Ness and South Van Ness Avenues, from Lombard to Mission streets. The lanes will speed up travel times on Muni and Golden Gate Transit by 32 percent. Service is expected to begin in early 2021.

Office support The hospital will be supported by a nine-story, 250,000-square-foot medical office building being developed by San Diego-based PMB. The building, located at 1100 Van Ness, will also include a six-level, 383-space underground structure that will serve the medical office building and the hospital. The two facilities will be connected underneath Van Ness so that patients and doctors can safely go back and forth without having to cross the street, noted Jim Rohan, senior vice president of

development for PMB. The development firm has been working on the project since 2015 and has had the advantage of working with Sutter on two other facilities including one in Castro Valley. The building will open March 1 when the hospital opens. PMB is spending about $167 million to build the medical office building and around $60 million for the parking structure, said PMB President Mark Toothacre. The architect is Boulder Associates and the contractor is Pankow Construction. Sutter is leasing 78 percent of the building. PMB recently signed a lease with Walgreens and has a lease pending with Starbucks, in addition to leases with two other major hospital medical groups. The building is now 83 percent leased. “We anticipate that leasing will increase when the hospital opens,” Toothacre said. “This is probably one of the few medical dedicated projects developed in the greater downtown area in two decades. Also, you won’t find another medical office building anywhere in the Bay Area that approaches 250,000 square feet. This is a very large building by medical office building standards.” Trask Leonard, president and CEO of Bayside Realty Partners, is helping PMB with leasing 1100 Van Ness in addition to helping lease out 1 Daniel Burnham Court, a mixed-use building that includes medical office space and 245

condos off of Van Ness and Post. The 106,000-square-foot Burnham Court office building is gradually being transitioned in anticipation of the hospital, according to Leonard. “The commercial portion was half medical and half office, but it made sense over time to begin to convert to 100 percent medical,” Leonard said. There are two powerful factors at play here, Leonard said. Many tenants are attracted to the proximity of the new world-class hospital. “The Van Ness corridor (has) changed so much over the past 10 to 15 years and becoming more of an urban destination,” he said.

Not just office Residential developers are bullish on the area, too. Build Inc. has approvals to construct 137 rental units in 12 stories on 830 Eddy St. Build’s Founding Partner Lou Vasquez is waiting on building permits. Demolition is slated for the first quarter with completion aimed for the third quarter of 2019. While the hospital was already underway when Build picked up the site in 2015, Vasquez said he was aware of its upcoming construction. “We saw that the Van Ness corridor was a likely place to need more housing, so we purchased the site and had it entitled,” he added. “And with BART going in, that will definitely help mass transit across that corridor. All of Van Ness is getting a facelift now.”

A WHOLE LOT MORE IN ONE From mini-golf to craft beer, new retailers are hitting Mission Bay BY FIONA KELLIHER

R “We have seen it really grow and change,” says Esther Stearns of Mission Bay. Stearns owns Stagecoach Greens minigolf.


aising three kids in San Diego, Esther Stearns and Jan Cohn Stearns loved family outings for mini-golfing. But they always wanted to play a course that was more engaging than the typical windmill and waterfall shots. Through a partnership with chef Carlos Muela of SoMa StreEat Food Park, the retired couple spearheaded the new 18-hole course at Parklab Gardens that opened in August at 1379 4th St. in Mission Bay. Over 150 Bay Area artists came together to design and build the course, called Stagecoach Greens, which is themed around San Francisco’s boomand-bust history. The site also features a beer garden and five food trucks. The project is known as Parklab Gardens.

Stagecoach Greens at Parklab Gardens in Mission Bay. “There just aren’t very many places you can put an outdoor mini-golf course that have that sense of relaxed open space,” Stearns said. “People can make a day of it.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 28

New grocer, craft brewery slated to fill vacant spaces CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26

Food trucks gather at Parklab Gardens in Mission Bay.


Parklab is among a slew of new retail hitting Mission Bay. After years of struggling to fill bar and restaurant spaces, the neighborhood has recently seen more businesses trickle in. Thousands of residential units have hit the area, making it easier for retailers to survive. One newbie is Australian craft brewer Little Creatures, which is getting new

digs nearby at the corner of 3rd Street and Mission Creek. Little Creatures has leased 6,300 square feet in the commercial portion of luxury condo building One Mission Bay for a restaurant and microbrewery to open in mid-2019. Meanwhile at 1120 Fourth St., the Ethiopian restaurant House of Tadu opened last year on the ground floor of a Mercy Housing affordable housing development. Other new businesses include Reveille Coffee at 610 Long Bridge St.; Powder, a shaved ice store at 601 Mission Bay Blvd., and Truly Mediterranean, a cafe at 900 16th St. Another big retail change is Gus’s Community Market taking over from Market Hall. Located on the ground floor of luxury apartment building Channel Mission Bay, the 10,000-square-foot space was previously occupied by Market Hall, an upscale food emporium that included both restaurant service and a grocery store. Restauranteur Tony Riviera was the project’s mastermind. Gus’s is a family-owned grocery store with locations in the Haight and the Mission. The new location would be Gus’s fourth in San Francisco. Founded in 1981, the grocer focuses on locally-sourced foods. Gus’s also provides catering services and houses delis in two of its locations.

One Mission Bay’s retail space will host a craft brewery. Gus’s will join a neighborhood that’s getting increasingly vibrant, said Esther Stearns, who designed the new mini-golf course at Parklab Garden. “We have seen it really grow and change,” Stearns said. For Stearns and her partner, who have lived in Mission Bay for the last five years, the neighborhood was ideal for both mini-golf and food trucks thanks to the spaciousness of the site and spiking foot traffic. The course encompasses about 10,000 square feet within the 40,000-square-foot Parklab Gardens venue, with plans to add another nine holes in the coming months. During Parklab’s opening weekend, the golf course saw over 1,700 patrons. Stearns is confident that people will find plenty to love at the site, particularly the quirky mini-golf holes, like one with a billiards table displaying San Francisco inventions like the cable car and television. “San Francisco hasn’t seen anything like this,” she said.

Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California Making Forward Progress on Bay Area Housing Crisis California’s San Francisco Bay Area Counties lead the list of most expensive rental markets in the nation, according to a new report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties take the respective top six spots on the national list. The region’s housing environment continues to make it harder and harder for working people and vulnerable community members to have access to safe, affordable housing, and for employers to recruit and retain workforce talent.

solutions for Bay Area housing. From 2016 regional electoral wins to the 2017 historic housing package at the Legislature, NPH is building a track record of success and driving meaningful progress for Bay Area housing. Now, NPH invites community leaders, developers, service providers, architects, and other industry members to accelerate the conversation, passing critical local and state ballot measures this November and identifying immediate, next bold steps.

“This is an embarrassing honor to hold and a devastating hardship for our communities,” said Amie Fishman, Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California (NPH) Executive Director. “We’re ready for the Bay Area to be known for our innovative solutions, rather than our housing problems.”

On Friday, September 21, NPH will host an all-day conference tackling how the region can create opportunities. Bringing together nearly 1,000 industry leaders and offering 25 workshops, this premier conference will be the largest Bay Area convening on affordable housing. Join NPH to explore solutions to drive progress for the housing industry and Bay Area communities at large.

By exploring regional and statewide strategies, NPH has been leading

The Business Times welcomes letters to the editor


PROP. 6 IS CALIFORNIA’S ROAD BACK TO THE PAST. DON’T TAKE IT As a fuel for political debate, gasoline usually generates more heat than light. Sure enough, a contentious gas-related issue is turning up the temperature on the November ballot. It’s also giving Californians the chance to turn their backs on the realities of the 21st Century — an invitation they should decline. The choice comes in the form of Prop. 6, and the damage it would do is hard to overstate. In repealing a 12-centper-gallon gas tax increase imposed last year, Prop. 6 would jettison $52 billion over the next decade that could help California meet its current and future transportation challenges. The higher gas taxes ordained by SB 1 are scheduled to pay for more than 6,500 improvements that will make it easier for California drivers, transit riders, bicyclists and pedestrians to get around. SB 1 will touch virtually every community in the state. It will help fund projects as grand as extending BART to San Jose, and as humble as repairing potholes or repaving thousands of local surface roads. More than 550 bridges, many overdue for renovation, would be repaired or replaced as well. There’s money to cut traffic congestion and beef up transit systems as well. That’s a lot to give up just to save $2 each time you fill up. Prop. 6 proponents’ argument boils down to the reality that nobody likes higher taxes. They contend that the state could manage just fine with the gas tax at its 1995 level if it stripped out transit, biking, pedestrian walkways and all that other nonsense and dedicated 100 percent of all gas tax revenue to roads. Though roughly 90 percent of the SB 1 money is directed to road work, Prop. 6’s exclusively car-centric thinking is from a bygone era. Even the most road-weary commuter realizes that the only realistic answer for California transportation is all-of-the-above. We desperately need better roads. We also need to foster other transportation modes to help manage the strain, particularly in urban places like the Bay Area. SB 1 does that; Prop. 6 does not. Prop. 6 is also underpinned by political chicanery. The state Republican party and a GOP congressman are among its largest donors. That has little to do with California motorists — and a lot to do with hopes that a tax measure will gin up votes for Republican congressional incumbents otherwise imperiled by an expected anti-Trump backlash. The road to the future may be shrouded with uncertainty, but one thing is clear: It doesn’t double back to the 1990s.


‘Local control’ isn’t perfect, but it’s better for everyone than unelected regional bureaucracies City and county officials — not state mandates or regional agencies — should decide where and whether to build housing

YIMBYs, often the mouthpiece for corporate interests, real estate developers, investment bankers and politicians, are good with slogans like “yes, in my backyard.” They blame cities for blocking housing, even though cities don’t build housing, developers do. Cities are not blame-free. Some have approved masThe Business Times recently put forward sive commercial construction without encouraging the view that “‘Local control’ of housing adequate housing.

en or so housing bills passed in 2018, piled on top of the 14 housing bills passed in 2017, which Berkeley researchers warn have unpredictable outcomes. The crisis is believing the mantra “we have to do something,” justifies legislation that benefits a few, while jeopardizing the majority. The crisis is legislation that increases the financial burden on cities without calling it what it is — an unfunded mandate. The crisis is the threat to democracy. David Brooks, a columnist for the New York Times, describes a new trend. In “The Localist Revolution,” Brooks identifies a national movement to flip the power structure away from centralized control back to local. Livable California is committed to community, equity and action. We don’t yet have a million-dollar donor, like the YIMBYs, but it could happen. With certainty, we envision the day when counties throughout the state wholeheartedly celebrate a Livable California. Kirsch is founder of Livable California, a coalition building bridges between local elected officials and volunteer leaders and Sacramento legislators.

them out in favor of state mandates or regional government. In community hands, these tools rely on local planning departments and elected city councils to engage stakeholders, conduct public meetings, issue progress reports and measure results. Local officials live in close proximity to their decisions and witness their consequences, not far away in distant offices. Citizen volunteers spend thousands of hours in stewardship, not because it “pencils out,” but to assure safety and quality of life, including the impact of housing on water supply, congestion, schools and taxes. It’s become popular to refer to an affordable housing crisis. Yet the “build, build, build” remedy rarely provides housing for low-income workers. Buying a new car isn’t as “affordable” as buying a used one. Building new housing — even tiny units — isn’t affordable to anybody on minimum wage. According to the state Legislative Analyst’s office, trickle-down affordability will take 25 to 30 years. The crisis we face is the systematic effort to dismantle local control and replace it with unelected, regional bureaucracies. The crisis is the rush to pass more draconian legislation, like the doz-

What’s an example of a key innovation to better serve clients? Audits and the use of data and analytics. In working with financial institutions on credit reviews, we had to handle that manually in the past. We now have a partnership with IBM’s Watson that allows us to automate a large portion of that credit review.

KPMG’s Lisa Daniels on workforce development

Are you seeing different demands from newer entrants to the workforce? Yes, our people want to grow, expand their skills and try new things. They don’t want to come and sit in the same job for 20 years. They want to see the world. We’ve worked at how we structure ourselves as a firm so that we can meet those expectations quicker and more fully to give them those options and experiences.

Lisa Daniels had teenage aspirations of being a dancer. She started dancing at 4 and pursued her dream into her college years. But after getting a business degree, she moved onto a different stage: commercial real estate, working in Southern California’s Lancaster-Palmdale area. She found she enjoyed modeling real estate deals and understanding their financial and economic impact and decided to pursue that by becoming an accountant. From there, she became an auditor at KPMG and began working her way up the corporate ladder. KPMG, one of the nation’s Big Four accounting firms, employs 2,100 professionals in the Bay Area, providing services to some of the region’s biggest companies. Nationally, KPMG employs more than 31,000 people across 110 offices. Daniels started as managing partner of KPMG’s San Francisco office in July.

What are clients considering when it comes to tax reform? There’s a vast array of things, depending on whether the client is a big multinational or a small startup. It started with international tax reform and repatriation of capital. Since then, clients are considering all the different aspects of tax reform. They look at where their operations are and how their companies are structured to take advantage of federal tax law changes. At the state and local level, clients are looking at the Wayfair court decision (and its effect on) the collection of online sales taxes. Now it’s even moved into spending a fair amount of time on trade and customs, with the tariffs.

How do you keep your competitive edge? I try to invest in my skills. I had a mentor tell me once, “Consider your personal resume and how it changed over the course of a year. If it didn’t change, that’s not good. You’ve not invested in yourself to stay personally relevant. You must take the time to invest in yourself and your skills to remain competitive.” What was your best business decision? My decision to relocate to Phoenix in 1999. At the time I had a 1- and 3-yearold. I decided to take that challenge. It was fun, exciting and interesting to grow the business into a substantial advisory practice. It also showed to others in the firm that I could do that. When I first moved to Phoenix, the firm did an interesting thing with my move into the IT advisory practice. I didn’t have an IT background. I shadowed an IT person to get up to speed.

LISA DANIELS Managing partner of KPMG’s San Francisco office HQ: New York, with Bay Area offices in San Francisco, Walnut Creek and Santa Clara Background: Daniels previously worked in commercial real estate before taking night classes to become a CPA, after which she joined KPMG and worked her way up from auditor to managing partner. She oversees more than 3,000 professionals across eight western states. In 2017, she took a similar role in the Silicon Valley office before assuming her current role in July. First job: Teaching ballet and tap dancing to 5- and 6-year-olds while in high school. Education: Bachelor’s degree in business administration from Pepperdine University. Residence: San Francisco.

What do you like best about the job? The people and the culture, which aligns with my personal values of trust, integrity, respecting the individual and leading by example. When I talk to recruits, I ask them about their experience of working in teams.


How’s business? Great. The economy and the industries that we serve are doing very well. Our business involves three groups: audit, tax and advisory. We’re seeing robust business across all three. Our clients are spending a lot of time on tax reform and the changes that we’ve seen in state and federal laws. Clients are also focused on digital transformation and related changes to their supply chains. Startups and the fundings involving VCs and private equity are also very active. It’s a good time.

What are your guiding principles for good management? Listen and take the time to understand the perspective of others. The same issue looks very different based on where you sit around the table or around the world. Also, you can learn something from absolutely everyone you meet. That’s how I try to live my day.

Pet peeve? If somebody doesn’t treat another with respect. You don’t have to agree with people, but you have to treat them with respect. Most influential book? “Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates WorldClass Performers from Everybody Else,” by Geoff Colvin. Favorite cause? Literacy. Favorite music? Pop country. —Mark Calvey
