In April of last year, my wife and I had our first child. Without getting too mushy or cliché about it, it’s the most freaking awesomest thing I’ve ever done. She’s now 16 months old, and the highlight of everyday, bar none, is spending time with her. One of the most interesting things I have […]
There is a funny dynamic going on in the San Francisco office market. Landlords are thrilled. The strength of the startup economy and the migration of startups from the Peninsula to San Francisco have led to the lowest vacancy rates ever and tremendous increases in price per square foot. The 42Floors research team contacted Garrick […]
For the past few months, I’ve been trying to decide whether I should write about what happened with 42Floors. I’ve been open about everything thus far. Can’t stop now, even though this is hard. In April 2014, we added a brokerage to our business, making it so anyone could search for office space on our […]

Over the past few months, 42Floors has experimented with being a brokerage in addition to being a commercial real estate data and search website. We’ve decided today to stick with what we’re best at: providing a great online search experience for commercial real estate. While we enjoyed working with clients directly and helping them find […]
I have been completely deaf in my left ear since being hit by a car when I was two years old. Since I’m operating with no backup, I do basic things to protect my one good ear like carrying ear plugs to concerts and plugging my ear when a fire engine drives by. Flying is always a loud […]
The race I’m training for, an Ironman, consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run. Pros will average around 9 hours and 20 minutes to the finish line, but I’m an age group triathlete. That means that just finishing the race is often enough; finishing in the top third of my age […]
Some of you know, I’ve dealt with some pretty significant sleep issues, including some pretty bad delayed sleep phase syndrome. My long term solution is light regulation. And light regulation, along with lots of other healthy sleeping habits generally works for maintaining a healthy, consistent sleep schedule. All those efforts keep me within the normal […]
