Oakland just keeps getting cooler and cooler. It's not just people that are moving here, businesses are also seeing the light and coming to Oakland.
A few months ago, news broke that Millennium, the legendary San Francisco vegan restaurant, was leaving its San Francisco location and moving to Rockridge. Now Sunset Magazine is the latest Bay Area business to announce a relocation to Oakland.
Here's a blurb from the magazine's blog:
Though we will all miss the gorgeous campus and gardens we have called home for so long, the move is consistent with Sunset’s longtime mission to reflect our readers’ lives and aspirations. In 1951 when Sunset moved from San Francisco to the south Bay, people all over the United States were leaving cities for the wide-open suburbs. Now the trend has reversed and Westerners—young people starting careers and empty-nesters alike—are opting to live where we can walk, bike or take public transit to work and experience new restaurants, shopping and culture out our front doors. We’ve documented this migration all over the West, from Denver to Portland, Seattle to San Francisco, Phoenix to LA. And now we’re part of it.
The magazine is moving to Jack London Square and will be in the same building as a new artisan food market that is slated to open in 2016.
