Harbor Board rents El Granada office space

Half Moon Bay Review/Clay Lambert, 4/23/15.  "Harbor District moves to El Granada." 

"On April 15 the Harbor Commission voted unanimously to move administrative staff into leased space on the second floor of the building at 504 Avenue Alhambra. The move is expected to be complete by June 1.

Currently, district offices fill a larger space in South San Francisco, near Oyster Point Harbor, one of two peninsula harbors under the control of the taxation district. But for most of its 70-year history, the district has been housed on the coast and elected commissioners have often said they planned to move closer to Pillar Point Harbor.

.... Last year the district came close to purchasing the entire building at 504 Avenue Alhambra. In fact, the commission voted to spend $1.8 million to purchase the property only to renege later because staff said unforeseen repairs would be needed. .... The Harbor District’s three-year lease calls for it to pay building owners, Working Dirt LLS of Palo Alto, $7,000 a month for the first 12 months. That would rise by $300 a month every year of the contract."   Read more.
