Well, it’s finally done. The team at TriplePoint SF needed a change of scenery, and though we knew it would be hard to adjust, we packed up our gear and left our office on 1st Street. All of us knew, of course, that it would be difficult to lose all of our old local favorites… our familiar haunts for lunch, coffee, and so forth. Still, the time had come to look to the future, and embrace the unknown, so we bid farewell to the old office, and made the long trek to our new digs… traveling an unthinkable distance of two city blocks.
Two blocks? Seriously? We don’t have to give up on any of our old favorites, or learn new geography, or even worry about catching different trains? Easiest move ever. I am not exaggerating when I say that, were it not for one particularly tall building outside our windows, we would be able to see our last office from here.
Still, there’s plenty of fun new stuff to experience when moving to a new location. Read on, and see it with us.
How sweet is that? Step off of the elevator, and witness our lovely new nameplate. First on the list, mind you; primo list placement. How did we score better placement than a company that has “Placement” right in its name? Take that, chumps.
Come on up to the front desk, where the very talented Andrew Jepsen will give you a tip of his hat and assure you that, yes, the person you’re here to see will be right with you. Actually, since the new office is a big open space, chances are that you’ll be able to see them from where you’re standing. That’s going to make it really awkward if we try to keep you waiting. Maybe we didn’t think this through.
By the way, just so it doesn’t catch you off guard, that photo isn’t back-lit. Andrew just naturally gives off that otherworldly glow. It’s honestly kind of distracting.
Here is a glance at our new open working environment. This would be a perfect space for inter-office collaboration if it weren’t for that obnoxious red pillar right in the middle, obstructing two entire feet of the otherwise total view of the office from any given desk. Stupid pillar. Stupid entirely necessary, admittedly stylish, probably load-bearing pillar.
Our new kitchen is so… so clean, and white, and angular. It looks like a laboratory station, honestly. I think we’re about to conduct some molecular gastronomy in here.
And here is our new 8th-floor view of the strange E*Trade… carousel… thing. So there’s that.
Welcome! Drop on by, drink our coffee, and drink in all of this liberating open space. The door’s always open at the new TriplePoint SF!
Except when it’s not, after normal working hours, holidays, etc. This is a place of business, you see.
