Cartoon Art Museum Granted Extension at Current Location

Month-to-month tenancy at 655 Mission Street has been extended through September 2015.

The Cartoon Art Museum (CAM) has announced that their month-to-month tenancy at 655 Mission Street has been extended through September 2015. The Museum’s current landlord, Brad Bernheim of Coast Counties Property Management, and Matthew Cuevas of Cappa & Graham, Inc., a San Francisco Event Management Company, made this extension possible.
In light of the booming commercial rental market, the museum’s situation is similar to many other businesses that have been priced out of their spaces. However, CAM’s tenancy and relationship with the landlord has been not only amicable, they have been one of the largest donors to the museum since it moved into the location at the end of 2001.  

 “Coast Counties Property Management is a family run business that takes a genuine interest in our tenants,” Bernheim noted. “Over the years, we have contributed significant monetary support to the Cartoon Art Museum as well as our other valued tenants.”

The CAM’s lease was up a few years ago, and it has been functioning on a month-to-month since then.

“We knew that we could not sustain our location as the economy skyrocketed and have been looking for a more long term space for a while,” says CAM executive director Summerlea Kashar. “I was really touched when Cappa and Graham came to me with the offer to help extend our current term in our location, even just for a few months.  For all of the businesses that feel like the economy and the landlords have been pricing us out, it was heartwarming to hear that Matt and Brad were willing to support us.”
