San Francisco office rents rose 7% to $76 a square foot annually in the second half of 2000, making it the most expensive market in North America, topping Silicon Valley and Manhattan, according to a commercial real estate report released Wednesday. After rising an average of 11.7% in 2000, rents are growing more slowly across the U.S. as the economy slows and many of the Internet and technology-related companies that fueled the real estate market in recent years cut back on expansion plans.

For decades, when it came to baseball, "the City That Knows How" decidedly didn't. The hometown Giants turned in routinely sketchy performances on the field, while drawing only the hardiest fans to frigid, forlorn Candlestick Park. But the Stick has been abandoned by baseball, and San Franciscans are lining up in their tweedy splendor to christen a new downtown stadium that is stylish, intimate and exclusive--in short, all things that this city holds dear.

When Leeanne Kallstrom moved back to San Francisco from New York in April, she gave her old landlord a call to see if the studio apartment and garage she had rented in the Marina district in 1992 was available. "It was a charming studio, and I had paid $850 for it back then," said the thirtyish Kallstrom, a saleswoman. "He told me that he was now renting the studio for $1,100, without the garage. I just laughed." Two months of frantic searching later, Kallstrom was no longer laughing.
