cover of downtown plan annual reportSF Planning has published the Downtown Plan Annual Monitoring Report 2015. It summarizes business and development trends affecting downtown San Francisco as required by SF Administrative Code, Chapter 10E, and reviews data for 2015. It notes changes in the amount of commercial space, employment, housing production, collection and use of fees and other revenues relative to the objectives of the Downtown Plan and mandated monitoring requirements. 

In summary, the report found that Downtown San Francisco continued to be a resilient district for the city and the region in 2014, largely because of Downtown Plan polices. Adopted in 1985, these policies have enhanced Downtown San Francisco's physical qualities and strengthened its position as a regional commercial center. The annual changes in Downtown land use, employment and transportation trends are summarized in the first four pages of the report, in the section entitled “2015 Summary & InfoGraphic.”

The report indicates that the economy continued to grow at a rapid clip downtown and citywide in 2015, as evidenced by continued development, declining vacancy rates, increasing rents, record employment and transit ridership, and growing tax revenue and use fees.

The report is available at this link: http://www.sf-planning.org/ftp/files/Citywide/Downtown_Annual_Report_2015.pdf or on the Citywide Publications web page.
