Three quick takes from the SV Biz Journal

1) San Jose gets twice as much revenue from business tax than from TOT. They get $70 m per year in business tax. We get zero. It’s possible that we would get more than that, despite the population differences, as we have Tesla, Amazon and the like.
2) 1050 Page Mill a new build by Sand Hill Peter Pau, is the 8th greatest lease, at 170,000 square feet, between Dec. 1, 2019 and November 30, 2020. Palo Alto has #4, 3000 Hanover, 250,000 sf also SHP; #16 607 Hanson 110,000 Stanford, Stanford Industrial Park — tho SHP is a broker — ???; #20 1501 Page Mill also Stanford, 100,000 sf; 1050 stood out because I went to some of the meetings, and wrote and maybe spoke up about it. Video games replacing devices.
3) Richard Florida, the creative class, still relevant? Was he ever?
oh there’s a bonus track on the back of the tear sheet for 2) above, ranking 25 property management firms: CW, CBRE, Essex, Ventana #7, Sobrato of MV #10. More later
