A live-cowork site in San Fran

You’ve heard of live-work units where owners either live about their workplace or have extra room to work in their living space. However, how about a live-cowork space? That’s the Hat Factory in San Francisco.

In the evenings the Hat Factory (word on the street was that a former tenant made hats there) is home to three tech-oriented workers, but during business hours they open it up to about seven other untethered workers. As you can see, it has a much more lived-in feel than most coworking spaces, and that’s its appeal.

You can take a video tour here, and its surrounding neighborhood here, in the Dogpatch and Potrero Hill neighborhoods of Southeast San Francisco.
