Rent in San Fran is so Expensive People Set Up Offices in Parking Spots

I'm not sure how sustainable this is - but I love the idea

People have started setting up outdoor offices in parking spots in San Francisco to beat the outrageous rent


WePark—a project led by San Francisco-based web developer Victor Pontis—was actually a manifestation of an idea that has become more popular in the last few years: Cities use space inefficiently and prioritize cars over people. The people at the desks were attempting to reclaim a sliver of space for human use. “Car parking squanders space that can be used for the public good—bike lanes, larger sidewalks, retail, cafes, more housing,” Pontis said. “Let’s use city streets for people, not cars.” (There are also WePark franchises in France as well as Santa Monica.)
