SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — In anticipation of Twitter’s initial public offering this week, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee took a stroll down Market Street on Monday to check out and assess the rapidly changing Mid-Market area.
The mayor’s first stop was at Twitter’s headquarters at 10th and Market. The social networking giant is largely held responsible for helping spark the area’s boom in commercial and residential construction.
“We’re in front of the so-called Twitter building. I still know it from my public works days as the Furniture Mart,” said Lee of the historic building.
