The space features a yoga studio, a rooftop garden and an arcade—essential elements in any productive workplace, really. And of course, in keeping with its avian motif, there are lots of images of birds.
The social media company's move marks a big change for the City of San Francisco; the area surrounding the newly restored art deco SF Mart building is long due for a revival. Empty storefronts and homelessness have marked the area seedy and undesirable, but city officials are hoping that Twitter's presence can turn things around.
In 2011, Twitter opted to stick around San Francisco after the city's Board of Supervisors approved a tax break that exempts new hired at the company of its 1.5% payroll tax. According to the San Francisco Examiner, the company is also working with the city to improve transit, create new dedicated bike lanes in the area and a new police substation on nearby Sixth Street. After all, crime isn't very Zen.
